LONDON (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed in violence since the U.S.-led invasion last year, American public health experts have
calculated in a report that estimates there were 100,000 "excess deaths" in 18 months.
Well, the last time i read anything about the amount of iraqis that have died was a couple of months ago and it was only at 10,000 then. This is
probably estimating the deaths overall while the other source is just adding up all the iraqis deaths stated by the media, and of course the media
wouldnt mention the civilian casualties caused by the Americans, and not other Iraqis. Also notice how this is considered a "conservative"
assumption, so there may be much more and how "The use of air power in areas with lots of civilians appears to be killing a lot of women and
children." Even though the world is, without a doubt, much better without Saddam Hussein, was this really worth it considering how even though Saddam
killed thousands of people at once sometimes, he probably hasnt killed as much people during his entire reign as Americans have within 18 months?
Edit- changed link. it should work now + added another similiar one
