Another Survey Finds One Million Dead in Iraq

Iraq Conflict Has Killed A Million Iraqis: Survey

The margin of error in the survey, conducted in August and September 2007, was 1.7 percent, giving a range of deaths of 946,258 to 1.12 million.

ORB originally found that 1.2 million people had died, but decided to go back and conduct more research in rural areas to make the survey as comprehensive as possible and then came up with the revised figure.

The research covered 15 of Iraq’s 18 provinces. Those that not covered included two of Iraq’s more volatile regions — Kerbala and Anbar — and the northern province of Arbil, where local authorities refused them a permit to work.

What did Stalin say? "One death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic." Except, as in Stalin's own case, ... and the people of the United States who have within them the power to end this conflict if they only wake-up and destroy the corrupt political system that produced this,* .... when you've killed those million people, it's a crime against humanity.

(This of course would include compelling that bottom-30 percent of the population that continues to support the criminal bush II regime to shut-the-fuck-up, now and forever, on all matters political.)

... sorry, but a million deaths is a big deal to me. Sometimes I feel a little extremist.
