Masters of Nature

Via Jihad Watch, I read that the Iranian government has recently arrested fourteen western Imperialist crusader spies within Iran's borders. Not only that, however, but these are spies with a difference. In particular, they are squirrels!

Yes, squirrels. According to the Islamic Republic News Agency:
The squirrels were carrying spy gear of foreign agencies, and were stopped before they could act, thanks to the alertness of our intelligence services.
So far as I can see, this is no joke.

In fact, it rather reminds me of the recent claims that British troops had released man-eating badgers (!) into the environs of Basra, in an effort to spread panic among the people living there. Which gives rise to the intriguing question, has the animal kingdom thrown its weight behind Western civilisation, in the war with Islam?
Because the only other explanation is that many Muslims are utterly insane, and that couldn't possibly be true, could it?

They could be seen as spies if they are non indigenous squarels,
looking to take over by wiping out the indigenous squarel population. Thats how things started in Britain, on those grounds we should applaud their early detection and action.

In relation to the Were-badgers of Basra the following hilarious quote from the BBC News bears mentioning:

"UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer said: "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area.""

The bit that got cut from official BBC report reads:

"..However, when asked about allegations of kamikaze caterpillars, Major Shearer said 'No comment'. Our correspondents remain alert for signs of intelligence in Iran."
