Iraq body count

I was going to post this in the War Thread, but I wanted people to see this, I think it’s important. I finally found a website that keeps track of civilian deaths during the Iraq conflict - which I think is very objective support to whatever argument you make when it comes to the war. I think that before you state your opinion on whether the war is good or not, you should take a look at these numbers. Even if you have no opinion, or don’t want to discuss the war, this is something you should know.

There’s one point I want to make. The current body count is around 500. The number of people that Saddam has killed during his regime is 200 times that.

Mods, this should definitely be moved to the War Thread, but I only ask that you wait a little while.

good to know, thanks for the research…

if you include the amount of children that die in that country from lack of medical supplies and nutritional (da mn, I wish I could spell) deficeincies each year the number goes WAY beyond that too… food for thought.


PS good point to raise lava
