600,000 DEATHS?!!!

Oct 11, 2006, 8:15pm

Going from something amazingly great (the last rant) to this one is a bit weird. But I felt I had to write about it.

So what's worse?

3,000 deaths because of terrorism?
600,000 deaths because of a search for weapons of mass destruction?

The Financial Times reports on a controversial study that says since the US Invasion of Iraq, over 600,000 people have died in that country due to "gunfire" and all the things tied in with it. The original report is here (in PDF format).

Several things. Even if the numbers are grossly exaggerated, there's no doubt in my mind that, at the very least, this conflict in Iraq has caused the lives of over 100,000 non combatants (read: innocent people). It's also caused the deaths of thousands of american soldiers, as well as other nationalities.

All because of an obsession the Bush regime had with Saddam and oil.

Both are really, really bad.

But if you had to think about it, which one is the worse of two evils? I know my answer.
