Spot the difference...


Pictured here are those two peas from the same pod, Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin. At least Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, thinks they are: "When I was heading into a meeting with Mr. Medvedev in the Kremlin and at the same time watched [Putin] on television, I was at a loss over who's who," Mubarak said. "In this respect, there's little difference between you two". (The different ties are the giveaway - Medvedev is sporting a burgundy number).

I have long thought that Mubarak looks like a minor thug from The Godfather trilogy, not that that is particularly relevant, but I do wonder whether his faculties are failing that he cannot tell those two apart, and whether he might get Ehud Olmert mixed up with whichever flapjaw is making excuses for Hamas this week, or McCain with whoever gets the nod for the Dems.

Anyway, an antique joke:

The Arab military top brass are discussing their repeated failure to defeat Israel, and are pondering on where they have gone wrong. They decide the Mig 21s were good enough, as were the T72s, and there were no obvious problems with the supply lines or chain of command . But one bright spark suggests it might have been the Russian military manuals: "Retreat into your own territory and wait for the winter snows".
