The Iraqi Holocaust

655,000 dead Iraqis since the US invasion? That’s two-thirds of a million, or, just a little under 200,000 per year. We’re probably going to be there until Bush is out, and the fallout is on us too. We, the US, could easily be liable for the deaths of over 1M people. Is that a significant enough fraction of the oft-cited 6M murdered by Hitler to count as a holocaust of our own?

Shame on us. Shame on us for all time.

UPDATE: I’m relieved. The President says he doesn’t accept those figures. I mean, the methodology is so bad, it could be like only 100,000 or so. Whew! What a relief, I mean that’s not a crime against humanity or anything. Nope.
