The U.S. is a democratic republic, the U.K. is a toy democratic republic 
permitted by the monarch. If the people vote for the wrong party, the 
monarch can demand a re-election, or so I heard years ago. Dunno if its 
still true or was a myth all along.

By the way I made a bad booboo with the metals, I ws trying so hard not to 
confuse bronze with brass. Mercury or Brass is associated with 
Hod/Intellect, Copper is Venus, instinct/emotion, Netzach, "The Triumph of 
Endurance". So I suspect the phalanxes are macho heros like the Celts and 
such not disciplined organisations like the legion.
