Obama's Nuclear Summit Gets Immediate Results! OR - What Barack Obama Can Learn From Lisa Simpson

...and from Iran, no less! After hearing Obama talk constantly about America giving up its nukes, and how other countries may be willing to follow suit, Iran was apparently persuaded by Obama's rhetoric to get involved as well:

Iran has succeeded in producing its first significant batch of further enriched uranium, the country's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said Wednesday, a move defying U.N. demands to halt the controversial program.

...Washington is accelerating its campaign for a new round of U.N. sanctions against Iran for its refusal to suspend enrichment, as demanded by the United Nations. Salehi's announcement was a further sign of Tehran's determination to push ahead with the program.

What a shock! While we disarm, our enemies arm? Who would have thought it? Well, Lisa Simpson, for one, in a "Treehouse of Horror" episode entitled The Fright to Creep and Scare Harms:

Bart and Lisa are at the Springfield Cemetery, mourning the loss of their pet goldfish, Goldie, who had always been there for them between August and October. Lisa inadvertently discovers the grave of William Bonney, a man who was killed at a young age by gun violence. According to his epitaph, he dreamed of a world without guns.

In his memory, Lisa starts a gun control crusade, which makes Springfield 100% gun free - even the police no longer possess guns. The town is now defenseless, causing the corpses of William "Billy the Kid" Bonney and his cohorts, 'The Hole in the Ground' gang (Frank James, Jesse James, the Sundance Kid- without Butch Cassidy, as they're 'not joined at the hip'- and Kaiser Wilhelm II) to rise from the dead. The gang starts wreaking havoc on the town, until Professor Frink invents a time machine, which Homer uses to go back in time to stop the gun ban and destroy the zombies.

Homer tells the citizens of Springfield to shoot at the zombies' graves, causing them to rise up and flee. Lisa feels guilty about banning guns, because sometimes they are the answer.

Somebody tell the president of the United States...please.

Family Guy could teach him something too. As soon as Quahog 2 got rid of all their guns, they were attacked by Stewie-squids and wiped out.

Equally apt!
