As Islamists took control of Mosul, Iraq’s second city, US military experts said that perhaps American troops can solve the problems that have somehow beset the country over the past decade.

Retired US General Norman Steele said: “America can no longer stand idly by. Maybe we need to impose peace by force. I’ve a vague idea we did something similar a while back and it seemed to work well.

“It’s only Iraq, for God’s sake. We could have the whole thing sorted by Halloween.
“And it wouldn’t cost much. About $200,000 all told. We could bring it in even cheaper if we skimped on armoured cars and a full-proof exit strategy.”
Iraqi Rashid Al-Ghazali said: “Oh please America, come and rescue us from our terrible plight.
“And don’t bother planning what to do after you’ve occupied us. That would be a waste of precious time.”
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair said: “Because of the visionary leadership of myself and President George W Bush, neither America nor the UK have any problems of their own anymore.
“This is the perfect moment to spread our innovative recipe for success across the Middle East.
“Honest to God, what would you do without me?”
