The Canadian magazine MaClean’s has raised a stir with their latest cover, which features George W. Bush as Saddam Hussein (above). Here’s an excerpt from the article:
It was embarrassing putting my flak jacket on backwards and sideways, but in the darkness of the Baghdad airport car park I couldnâ€™t see anything. â€œPeterik, put the flak jacket on,â€ the South African security contractor was saying politely, impatiently. â€œYou know the procedure if we are attacked.â€
I didnâ€™t. He explained. One of the chase vehicles would pull up beside us and someone would drag me out of the armoured car, away from the firing. If both drivers were unconsciousâ€”nice euphemismâ€”he said I should try to run to the nearest army checkpoint. If the checkpoint was American, things might work out if they didnâ€™t shoot first. If it was Iraqiâ€‰.â€‰.â€‰.â€‰he didnâ€™t elaborate.
