Too close to be that funny I'm afraid AfricanSkies.

When Brit military are deployed to the Gulf, they are given a long list of banned items. Apart from the obvious, like porn, alcohol, bacon and Bibles, there is a bit about "cartoon representations of animals with human characteristics - such as Mickey Mouse", which are also apparently offensive!

I forget the exact words, perhaps some other Brit has the bits of paper to hand and can quote verbatim??

Sounds a little confusing for the poor old toms:

You're not allowed to upset him with bacon, babes or bibles but it's okay to blow his head off with bullets.

The cartoon (link) carries a false message as well, as it seems to infer that Al-Jazeera have shown hostage beheadings - Al Jazeera have, as editorial policy, never shown such a video...

... no connection to the TV station, just trying adjust some balance....
