The U.S. Defense Department scored a major publicity coup when it released its 'Deck of Death' depicting alleged Iraqi war criminals, with newspapers around the world quick to embrace the concept. Conservative publishing house Newsmax has launched a 'Deck of Weasels' featuring 54 world celebrities who opposed the war. Heading the line-up are French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac and actor Martin Sheen. Vietnam Vice-President Dick Cheney bags the ace of spades, while his boss, who did his war service in Texas, takes a joker.
