Jon Stewart dusted off the old “Mess ‘O Potamia” graphic to tackle the latest crisis in the Middle East; specifically the militants taking control of Iraqi cities. Stewart watched all the footage of these militants running rampant in cities like Tikrit and cried, “What the fuck is going on over there?!”
At first, Stewart thought this put the United States in an awkward position because resources the U.S. provided are now in the hands of these terrorists. But with the Iraqi government asking for help, Stewart found the silver lining, saying, “We finally got it so that Iraq will now greet us as liberators! Way to go, everybody!”
It was at that point correspondent Jason Jones stepped in to declare Iraq needs a dictator again, and then offered himself up as the dictator in question.
