MIssed the most obvious
Thinking about Bush The Father, who stopped murdering a few days ago, and Bush The Son, who is still murdering, I remembered a quick disproof that I wrote MANY years ago.
Bush The Son constantly said "Democracies don't war." Other neocons expressed the same thought in English.
I disproved it
with an easy look at recent wars. In fact there's no correlation.
Some democracies have the war habit and some don't. Some dictatorships have the war habit and some don't. Warmaking and voting system are unrelated variables.
Just now realized that I missed the most obvious disproof.
By neocon terms we are a Democracy, and our Exceptional Mission in the world is to Spread Democracy. How do we Spread Democracy? We war.
Democracies don't war.
We are a democracy.
Therefore we war.
