64. That's where those numbers come from
Edited on Sun Nov-20-11 03:19 AM by RZM
Let's say for the sake of argument it's 1 million (personally I think that's a bit high, but whatever). Many of those have been killed by fellow Iraqis and it's still 1/6 of what Poland lost (Iraq and Poland's populations are comparable). And the vast majority of Poland's victims were killed by the Germans, not fellow Poles. And the occupation of Poland lasted roughly 2/3 as long as the Iraq occupation.

The comparison just doesn't work at all. You can say that the Iraq invasion was bad without bringing the Nazis into it. They were on a whole different level.
