Human Shield Clown Show
Nasty bickering, anti-Semitism, hatred of America, moony idealism, and grandstanding buffoons.
A meeting of the UN Security Council?
No, it’s the troupe of unintentionally hilarious human shields limping into Baghdad a day late for Saturday’s pro-Saddam demonstrations. One of their buses broke down in Italy, so they had 65 neo-primitive peace creeps on two double-decker buses, eating, sleeping, smoking, rutting, squabbling, knotting strange objects into their filthy hair.
Imagine the stench. And the snoring.
Ken O’Keefe, their informal leader and a former American Marine, burned his U.S. passport and designed himself new travel documents proclaiming him a “Citizen of the World.” As a result, he was detained in three countries.
Mr. O’Keefe has yet to arrive in Baghdad, and Mr. Joffe-Walt last heard of him in Syria.
Sounds like Mr. Teardrop Tattoo didn’t really intend to make it to Iraq; I’m sure he’s having a lovely time in Syria.
Among the British contingent are a married couple, Helen and Kevin Williams, 34-year-old vegans from Newport, south Wales who kept strictly to their diet throughout the bus journey. “It was very important to us,” said Mrs. Williams, who wore a T-shirt reading, “Animal Killers, close them down.”
I hope someone was filming this trip; it sounds like a combination of Spinal Tap and The Big Bus. But dumber.
