    War Plans
    The Mexican economy was grinding to a halt and international debt at an all time high. The Mexican President, President Fox, decided to call an emergency meeting of his cabinet to outline a plan he had to improve the economy of Mexico. When the cabinet was seated President Fox took the podium. "Fellow Mexicans." he said. "We all know the economy of our great country is on its knees, the economy has never been in a worse state. For this reason I've spent the past couple of months researching history and I have come to the conclusion that the only way to improve our economy is to invade the United States."

    The stunned silence was broken when the Defense Secretary raised his hand ask asked, "How will invading the United States improve our economy?" President Fox grinned and said, "As I said I have been studying history. All the countries who fought and lost against the United States have a booming economy today, look at Germany and Japan, the United States rebuilt those 2 countries and turned them into superpowers. Also take a look at Iraq, President Bush has pumped hundreds of Billions of Dollars into that country. So next week I am ordering our military to cross the Rio Grande and invade the United States. Our military will be defeated and the United States will invade our country and pump billions into our economy." With that the cabinet burst into applause and cheers, all except for the Secretary of Defense. When the applause and cheers subsided the Secretary of Defense raised his hand and asked, "What happens if we win?"

    They don't have to send the army - Future corridor Interstate 69 will do the job quite nicely.

    Has anyone here ever seen The Mouse That Roared, a 1959 Peter Sellers movie? You can find it on the Internet Movie Database. It was also a play.

    Anyway, it is about a small European nation that declares war on the U.S. in the hope of being defeated so we would pour millions of dollars into their country. They attack with bows and arrows in an old time sailing ship, but actually ends up capturing the Q bomb just built by a U.S. scientist and which is actually a dooms day bomb. Consequently they win the war and the queen of the little country has to spend the rest of the movie/play trying to figure out how to turn their victory into a defeat. It is actually a pretty good comedy.
