Study Claims Iraq's 'Excess' Death Toll Has Reached 655,000


www.washingtonpost.com

A team of American and Iraqi epidemiologists estimates that 655,000 more people have died in Iraq since coalition forces arrived in March 2003 than would have died if the invasion had not occurred.

Of the total 655,000 estimated "excess deaths," 601,000 resulted from violence and the rest from disease and other causes, according to the study. This is about 500 unexpected violent deaths per day throughout the country.

So...we are being blatantly lied to about the death toll.


The estimate, produced by interviewing residents during a random sampling of households throughout the country, is far higher than ones produced by other groups, including Iraq's government.

It is more than 20 times the estimate of 30,000 civilian deaths that President Bush gave in a speech in December. It is more than 10 times the estimate of roughly 50,000 civilian deaths made by the British-based Iraq Body Count research group.

The surveyors said they found a steady increase in mortality since the invasion, with a steeper rise in the last year that appears to reflect a worsening of violence as reported by the U.S. military, the news media and civilian groups. In the year ending in June, the team calculated Iraq's mortality rate to be roughly four times what it was the year before the war.


It seems no one wants to tell us what is really happening in Iraq.

Just goes to show how much some parties are profiting at the expense of thousands of innocent lives.

This government sickens me. Not only do the Democrats know what is going on, they are choosing not to a damn thing about it!



How to win Iraq:



CNN report from 2006 mentioning over 600K deaths below.

So what is the number really at now, a million?

I am interested to hear someone refute any of these claims.

We have done a horrible job at keeping this country unified. It seems like it will fall apart.

Its not the end of the world though. Iraq has been a country for less than a hundred years so its not like its a huge deal.

Can we just leave now and cut our losses?

The 'Iraqis' need to deal with their own problems now.

Sorry guys, but we messed up real bad. We just can't afford to bomb any more civilians. I hope they understand.

Debating the civilian casualties in Iraq is like arguing if there is an house fire or the fire is burning down the house it makes no difference. Thanks to the incompetence of Rumsfeld and co Iraq is an disaster on the scale we haven't seen before. The only people to have gained anything from this mess are the Kurds they will gain an independent state from all of this and maybe even an war with the likes of Turkey.
