Seven years of US led genocide have truly wrecked yet another nation. As a premonition of what’s to come, Iraqi insurgents launched a broad series of attacks on August 25th.
Let’s not forget to thank president Bush and the US Congress for this hideous accomplishment. Let’s also not forget to thank President Obama for keeping US forces stationed in this hell hole …
Sign the petition telling Congress that about a million Iraqis have likely been killed since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Help us expose to Congress the true costs of war.
A study, published in prestigious medical journal The Lancet, estimated that over 600,000 Iraqis had been killed as a result of the invasion as of July 2006. Iraqis have continued to be killed since then. The death counter provides a rough daily update of this number based on a rate of increase derived from the Iraq Body Count. (See the complete explanation.)
The estimate that over a million Iraqis have died received independent confirmation from a prestigious British polling agency in September 2007. Opinion Research Business estimated that 1.2 million Iraqis have been killed violently since the US-led invasion.
This devastating human toll demands greater recognition. It eclipses the Rwandan genocide and our leaders are directly responsible. Little wonder they do not publicly cite it. You can use the simple HTML code above to post the counter to your website to help spread the word.
Add your name to the petition telling Congress that about a million Iraqis have likely been killed since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.
Help us continue this important work with a tax-deductible contribution.
See the list of some folks we know have posted the counter.
I will say it again as I have many times … War is a Racket – Made by Government.

how many republicans spoke up about the first bush prez, the former head of the cia, who could only repeat numerous times on television to millions of people before checking that…..
“Television flashed her testimony around the world. It electrified opposition to Iraq’s president, Saddam Hussein, who was now portrayed by U.S. president George Bush not only as “the Butcher of Baghdad” but — so much for old friends — “a tyrant worse than Hitler.”
Bush quoted Nayirah at every opportunity. Six times in one month he referred to “312 premature babies at Kuwait City’s maternity hospital who died after Iraqi soldiers stole their incubators and left the infants on the floor,…….”
“Nayirah, though, was no impartial eyewitness, a fact carefully concealed by her handlers. She was the daughter of one Saud Nasir Al-Sabah, Kuwait’s ambassador to the United States. A few key Congressional leaders and reporters knew who Nayirah was, but none of them thought of sharing that minor detail with Congress, let alone the American people…..”
“Everything Nayirah said, as it turned out, was a lie. ….”
“How did Nayirah first come to the attention of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, which put her before the world’s cameras? It was arranged by Hill & Knowlton, a public relations firm hired to rally the U.S. populace behind Bush’s policy of going to war…..”
how many said that this was a mistake?? how many knew that there were lies beign told about babeis pulled from incubators?
