600,000 civilian executions in Iraq

So now there are 2000 American deaths in Iraq, it is never a good thing when this happens but I think that they knew what the ultimate cost would be. They did a great service to the people of Iraq and the Middle East as Stephen Cass stated in his article for Global Business Network "Along with other human rights organizations, The Documental Centre for Human Rights in Iraq has compiled documentation on over 600,000 civilian executions in Iraq. Human Rights Watch reports that in one operation alone, the Anfal, Saddam killed 100,000 Kurdish Iraqis. Another 500,000 are estimated to have died in Saddam's needless war with Iran. Coldly taken as a daily average for the 24 years of Saddam's reign, these numbers give us a horrifying picture of between 70 and 125 civilian deaths per day for every one of Saddam's 8,000-odd days in power."

This was from 2003, if you take the 2 years since you can add an extra 51,100 deaths (taken from with the 70 deaths per day). So if you think about it those 2000 American's that gave their lives to save the lives of more people that can fit into Miller Park

 

Well with leaders like this...

Sheehan has become a de facto leader of the anti-war...

MARC HUMBERT writes that Cindy Sheehan is upset with senator Clinton based on the senator not being opposed enough to the Iraq war. Now this is interesting because I thought that Sheehan would stick up for Clinton, or anyone that is not Bush, but I guess if your 15 minutes is almost up you will do anything to keep in the spotlight. On the same topic I read that Sheehan is planning on camping out at Bush's ranch again over Thanksgiving.

I don't mind the fact that Sheehan does not like Bush or his policies on Iraq, but I cannot stop thinking that she is dishonoring the death of her ADULT son, who made the choice to join the military. But she is getting the attention she wanted and gets to hang out with the likes of Michael Moore...

She is just another tool that might have had a legitimate complaint but let herself be sucked into the machine, now I don't think she is relevant.
