US unsure what to do with all that leftover democracy

Iraqi leaders today informed President Bush that Iraq's hunger for American democracy has now been satiated and requested coalition troops to dispose of all that excess democracy which they say they won't be needing anymore (via RawStory).

When the US invaded Iraq along with the large conglomerate of countries that formed the Coalition of the Willing, or what's colloquially known as Great Britain, they took along with them enough democracy to last Iraq for the next twenty years. Polls now suggest that lately, demand for democracy in the Iraqi marketplace has largely disappeared, thus creating the problem of safe and eco-friendly disposal of unused Iraqi democracy.

The elections that were recently held in Iraq succeeded in the setup of democracy manufacturing facilities. However, the product of those facilities, still being in a testing phase and of a dubious quality, the US is unwilling to substitute it in place of the democracy coalition troops brought along with them to Iraq.

Although much of American manufactured democracy has already been distributed by transporting it through humvees and B-52 bombers and making it available to the local populace, there is still a huge amount of leftover democracy in Iraq that presently has no place to go. Coalition troops are still debating about the final resting ground for this democracy which, reports say, is still in usable condition.

"We already have a number of requests for our democracy, which is highly in demand all over the world", said President Bush. "Our intelligence community informs us that Iran, for one, is positively begging for some. So is Syria. Who wouldn't want American democracy? It is the best in the world."

The Bush administration is however facing criticism from its own citizens regarding the gratuitous misuse of American democracy by sending it overseas while it is still in short supply in many areas inside the US. Many Americans are demanding that before the administration exports its democracy to other countries, it should first take care of the democracy shortfall in its own backyard.

In other news, President Bush's State of the Union speech was a huge success, leading to an immediate improvement in the economy due to brisk liquor sales during the speech.
