    What this really tells me: they have absolutely no clue. No system for cataloguing, calculating or deciding this factor. What does this mean? The government there doesn't care about their populous at all.
    I think in their body count they choose to add in all the dead caused by the Islomo-extremists that continue to kill people. The rationale of course being that if Bush hadnt gone to war they wouldnt be killing Iraqis. And OK...you can even cede that point, but then you would HAVE to go to door number two which says yes...but if Bush hadnt gone to war with Iraq Saddam Hussein would still be in power and his own personal record of genocide is rather impressive as well. Better to just stick with the talking points about the eeeeevil George Bush killing Iraqis and be done with it.

    OK...killed by Muslim extremist terrorists...got it. And how many might have died under Saddams hand based on his track record?

And yet...
    We don't steal the OIL outright. It is now in the Western Centralized Distribution Network for Energy and being traded in US Dollars. Many US energy corporations are now profiting handsomely from the spoils of war and actually from selling the gov't the energy to fight the war and armaments suppliers have profited handsomely as well. You don't think this war was about liberty and justice, or do you? War is good business, and business is good. And only a million or so dead.

    If all people wanted was his oil there were much easier ways to go about getting it. SURELY you know a thing or two about the man and his history...correct? BS. You keep pumping up that 'war for oil' drama, baby...it looks PERFECT on you.

    Sort of the point. Saddam may have thousands of Iraqi dead on his conscience. The war of choice initiated by the lead buffoon, GWBush, put the deaths of about a million on ol' GW's conscience. So he has the record for Iraqi kills by several orders of magnitude.

    It would be a more compelling argument if we actually ended up with more oil than sand fleas or scorpions.

    We should have taken the oil. That would have been the best thing for Iraqis.

    And all those dems that voted to support the war...and all of them that cited Iraqs WMDs both before and after Bush was elected. Surely you include them...right?

    How so? Our Corporations are profiting by drilling, processing, transporting, refining, and retailing the Iraqi OIL. The Iraqis are getting paid as guilt money so it doesn't look like we are stealing their OIL.

    Hundreds of thousands, via genocide alone. Starvation for hundreds of thousands more. Invading Iran cost hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Many hundreds of thousands (more than a million), over an about 20 year period, through genocide, starvation and the invasion of neighbors alone. This does not (as your 1 million stat does) include natural deaths and routine accidents. If we include non-direct murder, natural events and accidents, then Saddam's number approaches 10 million.

    What kind of ignorance allows for Bush to be responsible for more Iraqi deaths than the 20 year genocidal dictator?
