10DeadInside10: "Boo hoo, welcome to the reality of war. You talk like it's something new, thousands of civilians are always killed in any war,
so quit crying over it. "
Then shut up about September 11th. 3000 dead civilians, boo frickin hoo. It's war, war is unfair. Civilians die, it's a fact.
So what's the difference?
MA: "How is it that the range (34,000) is so much greater than the lower estimate? There are at least 21,000 CIVILIANS dead as a direct result of
conflict, but it could be up to 55,000. Even given the "lack of data" reason mentioned, how could this range be so great?"
I was asking the same question. I suppose it has to do with the fact that not only are civilian deaths unreported in Iraq, but it is illegal for any
reporter to go to an Iraqi morgue without permission from the US.
I was sad to hear THAT one, but not surprised.
