Iraqi Civilian Deaths

Reuters is reporting that an independent estimate of civilian deaths in Iraq which are a direct result of the US war now exceeds 100,000.

Wonderful. We have now not only killed more civilians than were killed in the World Trade Center attack, we have killed more Iraqi’s than Sadam Hussein did in his 12 years or so of power.

I am so proud to be an american these days.

What continues to floor me is that roughly 50% of the population continues to support the administration, and Bush. I would make some remark about knuckle-draggers, but that would be an insult to Gorillas and Orangutans, who somehow manage to live in peace with each other.

What cannot be disputed is, that by definition, 50% of the population is of below average intelligence.
