CUBA, SUDAN, SERBIA form "AXIS OF SOMEWHAT EVIL" OTHER NATIONS START OWN GEOKEY CLUBS by dagger dirk (of the Australia Post) After decades of Cold Wars, regional conflict, North-South Alignments and East-West Disputes and Divides, President G.W. Bush has managed to refocus the World's Leaders on a more charismatic diversity, one that is based less on politics, economic status or diplomacy and more on national self-image. However it has proven to be a flawed concept because of the disunity and disagreements that have arisen. Old alliances, alignments, pacts and treaties are in disarray as countries everywhere jostle for position, partners, status and distinctive new national personas. Beijing: Bitter after being snubbed for membership in the "Axis of Evil," Libya, China, and Syria today announced they had formed the "Axis of Just as Evil," which they said would be way eviler than that stupid Iran-Iraq-North Korea axis President Bush warned of in his State of the Union address. Axis of Evil members, however, immediately dismissed the new axis as having, for starters, a really dumb name. "Right. They are Just as Evil... in their dreams!" declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. "Everybody knows we're the best evils... best at being evil ... we're the best." Diplomats from Syria denied they were jealous over being excluded, although they conceded that they had asked if they could affiliate with the Axis of Evil. "They told us it was full up. It's very frustrating." said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, just before he ushered in Sheikh Abed but Getsupalot of the Yemen for urgent trilateral talks with the Egyptian President. "An Axis can't have more than three countries," explained Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "This is not my rule, it's tradition. In World War II you had Germany, Italy, and Japan in the evil Axis. So you can only have three. And a secret handshake. Ours is wicked cool. Threesomes are just right because at any one time, any two can be plotting against the third. There is fantastic scope for treachery, counter-plots and coups within the organisation. That's important on those frequent occasions when you don't have any external threat, yet you need to distract the people from their problems. It's a real buzz and it also works so well within any UN context."
