Eject!Eject!Eject! has a sweet post on the ‘cost’ of the war with Iraq…
“Here’s a math quiz for you:
During the 30-odd years he was in power, Saddam Hussein murdered at least 300,000 of his own people. These are the ones we are finding in mass graves in Iraq. Another 300,000 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ at least Ã¢â‚¬â€œ were killed in his war with Iran and his two conflicts with the US. Those are bare-bones, undeniable, non-speculative, minimums.
That darling arithmetic works out to no less than 20,000 people a year killed by that lunatic, or about 1,700 people a month.
So how many innocent people have not died as a result of the Iraq war?
I get about 13,000 so far.“
