The U.S. taxpayer-sponsored ethnic cleansing that U.S. and Ugandan evangelicals plan to commence against LGBT Ugandans in 2010 may be inspired, in part, by the success of Shia death squads that have allegedly killed 720 LGBT Iraqis since 2003.

U.S. and Iraqi security forces have taken little apparent action to stop that slaughter, despite pleas from Human Rights Watch and Iraqi LGBT.
