I think it may have more to do with the fact that the Ethnic cleansing is working. With over 1 million dead Iraqis and some 2 million refugees, the
decrease in violence might be due to the fact that the people someone wants to kill or blow up are already killed, blown-up, or run away.
We also must bear in mind that 2007 has been the most violent year in Iraq so far. So if the violence increases to it's highest point ever AFTER the
troop surge begins and then decreases ALMOST to the level that violence was at before the surge, can you really say that the troop surge is working?
Or that the level of violence was raised to a level unsustainable without the use of non-conventional weapons and died down due to the laws of
diminishing returns only to return to a level that is still considerably higher then what anyone living in the middle of that hell could ever possibly
want it to be to begin with?
1 million dead, 2 million + refugees. Some say as many as 4 million.
This amounts to roughly 5% of the pre-war population of 20,000,000 and does not take into account injuries. The refugee count is estimated at
2,000,000. This would be the equivolent of 15,123,950 American citizens dead plus over 30,247,900 refugees and excluding any injured when transferred
as direct percentages. The dead would equal the entire population of Montana, Deleware, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts,
North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah, and Idaho combined. Oh, you would also have to make every citizen of the state of California into
a refugee and send them to Canada or Mexico. Try to put all this into a mental picture and imagine what exactly the implications are.
