655,000 Iraqis Dead

As the Saccharinist pointed out just recently, the victims of the US, UK and their pitiful little coalition's war against the people of Iraq has been just that: a war against the people. And this week the real figure of numbers dead has been declared.

655,000 Iraqis have been killed in the last 3 and a half years -- that's 1 in every 40 Iraqis. Dead. That's more than were killed in the previously most bloody war Iraq had endured: its 8 year long war with Iran. It took the US just over 3 years to kill more people than 8 years of a horrific war did?

And now, the blow-alition wants out so don't anyone be surprised if that infamous Saddam Hussein finds his way back into "office". Why else would the US have kept him alive despite their show trial of his crimes against humanity? They no doubt anticipated that he -- once a CIA agent, always a CIA agent -- would somehow come in handy more in life than in death. Hmm... I say a fake coup will be staged and Saddam will climb back onto his throne of dictatorial vengeance and the biggest sufferers, then, as now, as in the past, will be the Iraqi people.
