Tokdo/Takeshima has been bombed

REUTERS-- Quoting biblical passages today, President George W. Bush decided to apply a "Solomon's solution" to the Tokdo/Takeshima dispute. Although neither Japan nor South Korea asked for the US's opinion, Bush sent several B-1 bombers out and ordered them to destroy half of Tokdo.

"We're splitting the baby, just like King Solomon did," Bush joked.

When reminded that Solomon never actually split any babies, but merely threatened to do so, Bush cracked, "I don't know what Bible you're reading from, but mine says something about baby stew. You Catholic?"

Bush recalled the bombers upon receiving notification that half the territory had been bombed to below sea level. Many sea creatures were reported killed.
