'Daily Show' Correspondent Jason Jones Offers To Be Iraq's New Dictator


Iraq is falling apart so rapidly that on Thursday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart blew the dust off the old "MESS O'POTAMIA" logo and brought it back for another run.

So what's a nation falling into the hands of radical militants to do?

As Senior Iraq War Correspondent Jason Jones told Stewart, "There's an old Iraqi saying: 'The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a truly horrible guy with a gun.'"

And Jones is ready to be that guy.

"I'm here to save you!" Jones declares in a faux Iraqi accent. "And then imprison and torture you."

Watch the segment above to see how rapidly the nation is falling apart, then view the segment below to catch Jones' generous offer.
