Serbian troops have been sent as peace-keepers to the U.S.-Fiction!

The Serbians Have Sent Troops to the U.S. to Help in the Aftermath of the Presidential ElectionsFiction!

Summary of eRumor: 
This news story says that Serbian President Vojislav Kostunica has sent 30,000 peacekeeping troops to the United States to help the struggle to “establish democracy.”

The Truth:

 
This is fiction.  It’s a tongue-in-cheek article from the humor/satire website www.theonion.com.  It is meant to be a satirical look at the tension following the 2,000 U.S. Presidential election.  The notion of a truly struggling democracy like Serbia sending peacekeeping troops to help U.S. elections is absurd, and funny.

www.theonion.com is a hilarious satire site, but many people circulating some of the more bizarre stories from there as truth.
