One Million Iraqis Killed in War

When well-meaning Americans talk about the costs of the war they talk about the thousands--inching up to 4,000--of soldiers who have lost their lives. But according to a new poll done by ORB, Opinion Business Research, the death toll of Iraqis is now one million lives lost violently.

One million.

If the number of US soldiers dead is now slightly higher (than the completely unrelated) number of Americans killed on 9/11, the total number of Iraqis who U.S. President George Bush has caused to be killed is now 333 times that.

Is that even slightly forgivable?
