Bob Hope Shows Up Alive and Hilarious in Iran
An analysis of an article posted by the Fars News Agency, Ahmadinejad, Erdogan Discuss Campaign against Terrorism, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan must be comedians.
According to the article, during a phone conversation between the two, Ahmadinejad said "Campaign against terrorism would yield fruit only through the presence and joint cooperation of the regional states" while Erdogan emphasized "Turkey is fully ready to render cooperation in the fight against the terrorists in the region."
Given that Iran is probably the world's top supporter of terrorism, being a prime supplier of Hamas, Hezbollah and other terror groups, while Erdogan used Israeli measures taken to stop rockets from being launched at civilians as an excuse to destroy a de facto alliance while siding with the terrorists, one can only conclude they are trying to humor the rest of the world.
Unfortunately, as a comedy sketch, this one's a turkey.
