Axis of Evil Takes Credit for Hurricane Sandy

VerazannoThumb

I was sure conspiracy theorists would blame Israel for Hurricane Sandy. We’re blamed for tsunamis, Red Sea shark attacks, and bird flu, among other things, so ridiculous accusations don’t surprise me anymore.

Instead, the Axis of Evil’s supporters pre-empted all that by taking credit for Frankenstorm. CNN writes:

Hours after Superstorm Sandy howled its way through the East Coast this week, unleashing a fatal trail of destruction, global reactions included outpouring of sympathy and support.

But not in Syria, where some pro-government supporters welcomed the superstorm when it hit Monday, claiming the natural disaster is the result of high-tech secret engineering.

. . .

“Sources confirmed to us that Hurricane Sandy that is slamming the U.S. was set off by highly advanced technologies developed by the heroic Iranian regime that supports the resistance, with coordination of our resistive Syrian regime,” pro-government group News Network of the Syrian Armed Forces said in a Facebook posting.

“This is the punishment for whoever dares to attack Syria’s (Bashar) al-Assad and threaten peace and stability.”

What else might they have caused?
