Since their soliders are already surrendering, how do we know this just isn't their Navy trying to pull a Red October?
 
2003-03-09 01:58:53 AM
Should we expect Iraqi seamen washing ashore? Better wear your hip-boots.
 
2003-03-09 02:47:48 AM
Interesting. I wonder when they will launch their fleet of mini aircraft carriers carrying their little biological warfare drone airplanes.
 
2003-03-09 03:05:48 AM
Iraq has a navi? I didn't even know they had a boat.
 
2003-03-09 03:06:53 AM
I meant navy. You get the point.
 
2003-03-09 03:07:29 AM
Now THIS is a story folks..No farking pussified "I got a dog and I liked it" bull scat. No siree Bob. This is real beef and we'll chew on it.
 
2003-03-09 03:07:54 AM
Wait, wait - you mean they're getting ready to invade CANADA?? Those BASTARDS! They must be stopped!

Bush declares war on Lake Michigan, U.N. Surenders.
 
2003-03-09 03:09:02 AM
Does the National Inquirer run this website or get their info off it or something?
 
2003-03-09 03:11:35 AM
bah, iraqi terrorists indeed.
 
2003-03-09 03:14:34 AM
Just think about it.. thousands of Iraqi frogmen swarming through Wisconsin. Frightening.

Nuke Iraq now! Before they take Green Bay!

We've got to stop them before they make their way to Niagara Falls.
Or worse, the Atlantic ocean.
 
2003-03-09 03:19:39 AM
From Lake Michigan, they could get any of the Great Lakes, even make a tactical strike at Cedar Point. Oh well.
 
2003-03-09 03:20:38 AM
Cedar Point? like the theme park? that place rocks. atleast, they have over half the 'greatest coasters' on that discovery channel show.
 
2003-03-09 03:21:00 AM
"Published in November 2002", OK USA!
 
2003-03-09 03:21:31 AM
i like how they're working other slices of insanity along with the idea of iraq putting mini-subs in lake michigan. So there's a lake michigan monster, now? And fisherman are able to real in submarines? As if working multiple crackpot ideas together can somehow add credibility to all the ideas...

BTW, My favorite part of the article is how the story is located in Detroit - which isn't even on Lake Michigan.
 
2003-03-09 03:21:52 AM
Why I'm offended. They list 6 cities in danger of being attacked and they are all AMERICAN. What about Toronto or Hamilton or Ste. Sault Marie. Who says those Iraqi's don't want to destroy the Skydome and it's fine retractable roof.
 
2003-03-09 03:22:17 AM
aquaman would be useless, much like he..always has been.


"I'm a superhero... no seriously i am!"
 
2003-03-09 03:22:57 AM
yikes, sorry for pic bigness.
 
2003-03-09 03:23:12 AM
"And if they access the Erie Canal, that would take them to the Hudson River and enable them to strike at New York City."


barring the rest of the idiocy of the article...does anyone believe that a sub could get through a canal undetected? seriously?

i love you weekly world news.
 
2003-03-09 03:24:46 AM
Scrotar: No, let 'em take Green Bay. Then, not only would we have a valid excuse for wiping them out, we'd also be rid of Green Bay.

</Bearrrsssssssssssssssssssssssssssss>
 
2003-03-09 03:25:17 AM
aquaman looks like hes humping that sea horse. i bet the sea horse isnt enjoying it.

New survalence photo of iraqi Mini sub.
 
2003-03-09 03:26:29 AM
This is months old......I actually bought the damn thing, laminated it, and hung it on myoffice wall.

omigod, this is so awful. no one can get behind something like this being in print, even if it is the weekly world news.
 
2003-03-09 03:31:41 AM
Ummm...I don't mean to laugh, but:

"The Iraqi Navy has about 600 personnel total. The major bases are at Khor-az-Zubayr and Umm Qasr."

http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/iraq/navy.htm

It seems that Iraq doesn't even have subs for that matter.
 
2003-03-09 03:32:00 AM
If you're going to make fake news, does it have to be so stupid?

And if they access the Erie Canal, that would take them to the Hudson River and enable them to strike at New York City.

Wouldn't they have to have accessed the Erie Canal to get into the lake? So wouldn't they have done their business then? I mean come on. At least make fake news that will fool 80 year old grandmas.

Their subs obviously went up the St. Lawrence and up Niagara Falls.

When Aquaman unleashes his awesome tidal wave powers on you you'll be really sorry! Then who'll be useless?

2003-03-09 03:40:00 AM
im near no major body of water, what say you now aqua man? also id like to see him tidal wave a sub.

You mean like CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX and all the other major news services do?
 
2003-03-09 03:44:27 AM
yeah i saw that to korzeniowski, love the part about american prisoners being 'the toughest hombres on earth', sure they are...

Aquaman will send his tiny sea minions through the water supply and into your toilet where they shall bite your ass! Aha!

At least this news company just totally throws out BS, as seen by any person who reads this article. CNN, Fox News, etc. They pretend and really try to tell you "fair and balanced" with a straight face... and some people believe it.

Far_queue_2:

I'm of the opinion that the Daily Show is the last bastion of quality hard news. They are, by far, the best out there.

OK, well, maybe they are just only "news" show I enjoy watching. That's worth something isn't it?
 
2003-03-09 03:50:27 AM
I thought maybe I had caught the Lake Michigan monster. I tried to reel it in, but then I saw a periscope come up. You can't even begin to imagine my surprise when I found out I'd hooked a mini-sub."


LOL! Good stuff! Someone most have worked hard on writing this.
 
2003-03-09 03:51:08 AM
Sad thing is, I know people who would buy this sort of thing.
 
2003-03-09 03:51:38 AM
Vrax, I only watch the daily show to get my TV news. Been a fan since Stewart took over for Kilborn who sucked.

How much are they willing to pay? I could use some extra bucks.

Big Al:

Yeah, I see the Daily Show as the Fark Photoshop of the news world. They are just brilliant and frequently succeed in presenting a more truthful, albeit funny, picture.
 
2003-03-09 03:57:42 AM
Hey...wait a minute. Can aqua-man function in freshwater? I bet this is a load of carp.

/spits in disgust.

Yep, that was the point I was trying to make.

Vrax As I'm not in the US I'm not sure if the "Weekly" Daily show international edition that I watch is the same one (satire and comedy) but if it is, I agree.
 
2003-03-09 04:06:54 AM
Far_queue_2:

Yeah, "satire and comedy" with a splash of biting relevance would certainly describe the show I'm used to.
 
2003-03-09 04:29:19 AM
If they can avoid getting caught until summer, the Iraqis should pull into Grand Haven and grab themselves some

(okay image isn't exactly from Grand Haven just something GIS coughed up)

If this doesn't work I'm crawling into a hole
