Check out this Classically-inspired 'graph from a piece from CMAQ:

Baghdad and New Orleans represent the external and internal Janus-Face of world, fascist imperialism, of "democracy" ... whose death trails can be followed from Draco to Bush, from Nero and Caligula to Rumsfeld and Rice, and whose ominous grimace only reflects its own language of endless suffering, pain, terror and violence.

... wow.
