655,000, or 2.5% of Iraq's population. That's a staggering number! One in twenty five Iraqies killed since the beginning of this war.
In comparison, if one in twenty-five Americans were killed, that would add up to 7.5 million Americans. So far the count is around 3000 though, including non-American troops.
While the underlying blame lies squarely on Bush for creating this quagmire. There is something wrong when Muslims systematically assisinate and mass murder other Muslims for little reason other than to create havoc and destroy what remains of Iraqies dreams. Or perhaps the reason is simply to see America fail. If enough Iraqies die, America will be embarassed for the stupid mistake they made of invading.
Bush is suffering from the lowest support ratings of any president in history. Hovering around 40% - what shocks me is that there are 40% of Americans stupid enough to keep blindly supporting this buffoon.
