600.000 Iraqis Dead Due To Invasion

According to a recent study, more than 600,000 people in Iraq have been killed since the U.S. invaded in 2003 to lead Iraqis to peace and democracy.

That’s 20 times higher than the figure the White House has bandied about.

Many of the dead, say the team of American and Iraqi epidemiologists who conducted the study, would likely be alive today if the invasion had not occurred.

The researchers point the finger at post-Saddam violence as the cause of the deaths, according to news accounts.

Such a toll strikes home because the stunning number rivals Seattle’s population, 570,000.

But hey, oil prices just dropped, what, 30%?

    How concisely you put it. Now, were those terrorists there prior to the invasion? Nope. Would those 70% have been killed had the US not invaded? Not the same amount, that’s for sure.
