Ali-G, the irreverent gangsta, once had a spoof interview with James Baker, the former Secretary of State.

He questioned Baker, if there was any danger that a fighter pilot might confuse Iran and Iraq, because of the similar sounding names.

"No Danger" replied Baker.

I found it very amusing listening to NPR this morning, when first John Danforth, the new US Ambassador to the UN said "Iran" when he met "Iraq", and then a few minutes later on KQED's forum, David Kay, former IAEA/UNSCOM Chief Nuclear Weapons Inspector, said "Iraqi" instead of Iranian.
