According to a United Press International article, Morocco has offered the United States a large number of monkeys.  Now why, you might ask, would the US need a couple of thousand monkeys?  Why, for detonating land mines, of course. Silly us.

Autobots, roll out… to Iraq!
Apparently we are on the side of right.  Well, at least the Autobots think so.  After all, why else would their couragous leader be helping out the US National Guard in Iraq?  It seems that a member of Ohio’s National Guard legally changed his name …
