We Have Never Fought a Democracy

Well, Germany in 1941.
And Gaza today.
And we have overthrown democracy
for "our men"
Chile in 1974: Allende for Pinochet
Iran in 1953: Mosaddeq for the Shah
Venezuela in 2002: Chavez, but it failed
so should that really count?
And East Timor, after their vote for independence?
and Haiti, 2004, kidnapping Aristide
