Iraq Headlines.

This will be short and sweet. Todays headline from Associated Press "
October Deadliest Month Ever In Iraq"...ummmmmmmmm not quite true.

"Along with other human rights organizations, The Documental Centre for Human Rights in Iraq has compiled documentation on over 600,000 civilian executions in Iraq. Human Rights Watch reports that in one operation alone, the Anfal, Saddam killed 100,000 Kurdish Iraqis. Another 500,000 are estimated to have died in Saddam's needless war with Iran. Coldly taken as a daily average for the 24 years of Saddam's reign, these numbers give us a horrifying picture of between 70 and 125 civilian deaths per day for every one of Saddam's 8,000-odd days in power"-

People tend to ignore those lil pesky things called FACTS!!!!!!!

Perhaps people should try calculating the amounts of lives saved since Saddam was toppled.

Then again, that type of thing doesn't interest anti-war, anti-military fanatics.

More about the bomb in the green zone.
