Spreading Freedom

Iraq is becoming every much the gulag nation that the US has already been for quite some time. Add to that a liberal (or should I say, neoliberal) dose of ethnic cleansing, and we can ask our True Believers in the doctrine of American Exceptionalism if that shining light on the hill isn't merely the eerie glow of toxic waste.

See also my previous discussion of urbicide, and of the several million displaced Iraqi refugees (including indigenous cultures such as the Mandeans who are being essentially wiped off the map after 2000 plus years of existence).
