Iran arming Shi’ite proxies in Iraq with ballistic missiles that can hit Tel Aviv

A report published by Reuters on Friday revealed that Iran is moving ballistic missiles into Iraq, placing the weapons in the hands of its Shiite militia proxies to expand its ability to hit targets across the Middle East in a regional conflict or war against Western powers.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
