American folklore?

"Democracies don't go to war; democracies are peaceful countries."
- President George W. Bush, 12/19/2005

I guess this means that once Iraq becomes an honest-to-goodness democracy, it won't decide to unilaterally invade foreign countries based on false pretenses. After all, real democracies don't do that sort of thing.

...just like America, right?

Thank you for this post. As morbid as the image is that you used, it's a painful reminder of the real victims of war. Little does Bush and his buddies realize, it's not just the "bad guys" who suffer, but the innocent.

Great blog, by the way. You're an excellent writer.
