    Hmm so everything you posted was during the period of the War when the Insurgent and US Force were fighting back and forth. As I ask can you provide the proof that you have witness these. And you still haven't been able to prove any fact that they would go back to be their Husban Slaves now have you.

    ...because Iraq is the country offering the scholarships.

    I'm not sure why this is confusing.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    93 WTC Attack,

    Killed: 6
    Injured:766

    The 1042 number has long been revieved and the Wiki Article is rather out of date.

    So with that in mind the actual number is 8789 and this is from the CIA/FBI 9/11 Report which is part of the over all 9/11 report.
    Let's don't forget the folks who never reported any injuries. Not to mention all the PTSD cases that will go unreported and the folks who inhaled no-telling-what from the dust of the WTC. I bet the number could go up as high as 20 thousand.

    Let's see some links for those numbers, too.

    It would be more honest for you to just flat out say you do not like Arabs, and do not want Arabs in your lily-white view of America?

    Out of ALL those casualties, how many were caused by Iraqis? On the other hand we have caused between:

    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_Family_Health_Survey"]Iraq Family Health Survey[/ame]: 151,000 violent deaths
    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancet_surveys_of_Iraq_War_casualties"]Lancet survey[/ame]: 601,027 violent deaths out of 654,965 excess deaths
    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ORB_survey_of_Iraq_War_casualties"]Opinion Research Business survey[/ame]: 1,033,000 violent deaths as a result of the conflict.

    So depending on how you look at it, we the U.S. have caused between 150,000 to 1,033,000 deaths as a result of our intervention. God I hope you are not a right to lifer.....

    And that has what to do with anything?

    Re: Iraq Plans to Send 10,000 Students to Colleges in U.S., Abroad

    During my undergrad a couple of Iraqis were in one of my history classes. They said it was a breath of fresh air to be able to learn in an environment free of persecution.

    The U.S. has no reason to fear these people, and if the Iraqi government is funding their exchange then so much the better. These people will come to the West, learn in free environments, and take that experience home with them.

    The Iraqi gov. is announcing this so blissfully because at the current time it is in desperate need of positive press on its humanitarian efforts, given the recent crackdowns following the elections.
