IRAQ and Star Wars

The Iraqi Ambassador to the UN has just finished giving a speech, and walks out into the lobby where he meets President Bush. They shake hands and as they walk the Iraqi says, "You know, I have just one question about what I have seen in America."

President Bush says "Well your Excellency, anything I can do to help you, I will do."

The Iraqi whispers "My son watches this show 'StarTrek' and in it there are Americans, Russians, Scottish, Japanese and Africans but never any Iraqi's. He is very upset. He doesn't understand why there are never any Iraqi's in Star Trek.

President Bush laughs and leans toward the Iraqi, and whispers back

"It's because it takes place in the future...."
