4. How can 40,000 people be killed in
Edited on Tue Sep-05-06 03:44 PM by keta11
the last 3 years when it was recently documented that 3,000 are being killed monthly? 36 months * 3,000 = 108,000 people if we assume roughly equal monthly sectarian/ revenge killings. And this number does not include the ones killed by American soldiers in shock & war, Haditha etc.

Oh my, George "Dumbya" Bush is one horrific murderer!!! Aren't his crimes rivalling Saddam Hussein's?
The difference being he did'nt kill his own people, except nearly 3,000 soldiers

On edit:
Sorry, it says at least 40,000
