48. I'll bet
the Iraqi people have deserved none of the death that has been inflicted on them for decades...judging the merit of the country by the breakdown in civil society during a war is pretty lame...I'm waiting for the movie about the US being an inferior nation where we have some valuable resource and are bombed every once in a while by some powerful nation...it's only then that you realize that you're attacking them in their homes, for sins committed by others
