President Bashir al-Assad was heard to say,” build the danged wall ” in response to the news Arizona Senator McCain had slipped across the border into Syria. McCain, assisted in his trek by Humane Borders, hopes to find work as a mercenary arms supplier.

McCain told rebels he hopes the  U.S. will get involved in Syria’s civil war by arming them, providing a no-fly zone and a surge.  McCain told Al Jazeera, “ I'm pretty sure Assad has yellow cake uranium and mobile biological warfare labs. And Dick Cheney told me we’ll be greeted as liberators with flowers.”

Meanwhile back in Iraq, aside from the car bombings, chaos, sectarian tension and shootings, democracy is in full boom.
