Irony, part II

The Guardian has an excellent Independence Day article: The tyranny of George II. A celebration of all things American, plus some comments such as this:

There is a certain irony that today the American empire is celebrating an essentially anti-imperialist event.

Those who are still in denial that America is an empire might not see it that way, but I'm sure they'd still laugh at the idea of Glaxo-Smith-Kline-Belgium.
