Over at theWall Street Journal there is an article about how the estimate as to how many Iraqis have died since the war began is WAY above what we have been told over the last couple of years. I have heard different numbers, anywhere from 20,000 to 100,000, but this study puts those numbers to shame.
The study, that is going to be published Saturday in the Lancet, was conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, found that over 600,000 people have been killed in Iraq since the beginning of the war. 600,000 people have died as a result of this “war” that should not have happened in the first place. Let me get this straight:
Saddam reportedly killed 250,000 to 290,000 people over 20 some odd years.
Bush’s war has killed over 600,000 in a little over 3 years.
President Bush in December said “30,000, more or less” had died….so no matter if 30,000 or 600,000 had died, the number is irrelevant…its “more or less” a difference of 570,000 PEOPLE. These were people, with families, children, jobs, houses, a life. The majority of them were probably not miliary, but rather regular civilians that could just as easily have been me or you if we were invaded by some other country.
Just another lie amongst lies….more or lesss.
