Who's the evildoer again?
According to a new study, some 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed as a result of the American invasion. That's 33 times the number of Americans killed on 9/11. That's 41 times the number of Americans killed at Pearl Harbor. That's 20,000 more than the number of Japanese killed outright by the A-bomb in Hiroshima, and 26,100 more than Nagasaki. That's 41,774 more than the number of American soldiers killed in Vietnam.
That's 2/3 the population of Jecheon.
Over half of those killed were women and children.
Not including the number of soldiers lost in battle, an estimated 300,000 to 500,000 Iraqis were murdered by the Hussein regime during his 23-year reign.
The US has managed to do a third of this in just a year and a half. A few more years and we'll top Saddam's record--all in the name of spreading freedom.
Rummy says, "Freedom is messy." Well, messy freedom don't mean too damn much to a dead guy.
Said the BBC, "Before the war, Iraq was a society with order but no freedom. Now it has freedom, but no order." As a teacher of semi-feral children at the ghetto-punk Dong Middle School, I can assure you that if you must choose between one or the other, order always takes priority.
Unless you like anarchy.
