"Exporting Democracy"

PhosphorUS - Phos-for-You No, this is not some secret symbol from some long-forgotten Da Vinci cult/Skulls & Bones good-old-boys club. It's a molecule of phosphorus--a chemical that was used to burn the skin off Iraqis (both military and civilian) in our attempt to turn that country into a democracy. U-S-A! U-S-A! I guess the "logic" behind its use is that if we murder all the Iraqis, then Iraq will be democratic de facto--insofar as the good old boys of Halliburton actually believe in and/or practice democracy (because they'll be the only ones left there). Yeah, I know: I'm living in a fantasy where a piece of paper protects basic human and civil rights, but at least I'm not burning people alive in the name of having those people believe the same lie.
