Another Geographical Blunder

US Vice-President Dick Cheney has made a geographical gaffe during a foreign policy speech, appearing to confuse Peru with Venezuela...

He made the faux pas on Friday while addressing a lunch meeting of the Dallas-based World Affairs Council, which describes itself as an organisation set up to educate citizens on international affairs.

With him and Bush in charge, you certainly don't want to live anywhere that might be "confusingly similar". I wouldn't want to be nuked simply because they got in a muddle.

Not really, I moan about our government on a daily basis, but at least the people in charge of our nuclear weapons don't appear to be completely delusional.
