    How Many Iraqis Died in the Iraq War?[W:496]

    How Many Iraqis Died in the Iraq War? "And when respondents were asked in a different poll (AP/Ipsos, 2/12/07-2/15/07) to give their "best guess" about civilian deaths, 24 percent chose the option of 1,001 to 5,000 deaths.
    These answers are, of course, way off the mark. Estimates of the death toll range from about 174,000 (Iraq Body Count, 3/19/13) to over a million (Opinion Business Research, cited in Congressional Research Service, 10/7/10). Even at the times of those U.S. polls, death estimates were far beyond the public's estimates." "
    And when they are, they could be a massive undercount. A December 1, 2011CBS Evening News report told viewers that "more than 50,000 Iraqi civilians were killed in the war" (FAIR Action Alert, 12/2/11). This figure was sourced to iCasualties.org, which had one of the lowest estimates of civilian casualties at the time and warned readers that the number was probably a severe undercount.
    The "corrected" figure that CBS put forth 11 days later was 115,676 civilians killed, and sourced to Iraq Body Count–still one of the most conservative estimates to be found (FAIR Activism Update, 12/13/11)." Does this huge discrepancy reflect poorly on our Major Media for lack of reporting? Is it OK for the USA to kill 100,000 to 1,000,000 Iraqis so it's not really news. It's OK, they died because of a figmentary WMD causation. Who gives a rat's ass.

    To the ADMIN, the format of that post is forced by the fact that when in the composing forum for the post the "ENTER" key does not work. This is the third or fourth post that this has happened on. I am a low speed phone link, but have posted many times and this problem started about three weeks ago, estimated.

    I thought those people died because their leader violated the terms of the ceasefire from first Gulf War. Any other reasons, real, assumed, or otherwise, was to help get more people on board with that core cause.

    Touting the 1 million figure, years after it has been debunked, is willful ignorance.

    It certainly couldn't have anything to do with all those Iraqis living on somebody's OIL, or not? Let's see. Iraqis got sand. Iraqis got sand fleas. Iraqis got scorpions. Iraqis got OIL. I wonder if coinky - dink is operating subliminally here, or not?

    Didnt you start the thread showing we did NOT in fact go in to steal their oil only a few days ago or was that someone else? I mean...it should have been blatantly obvious to anyone that we didnt seize their oil in either the 1st OR 2nd war with Iraq even though...lets be honest...if we wanted to we could have easily...so that argument is just so completely wrecked you would think people would be embarrassed to continue to raise it. And yet...

    A range of 174,000 to 1,000,000 - that is a vast difference.

    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.
