    iraq death rate 2000: 6.4 deaths/1,000 population

    iraq death rate 2005: 5.49 deaths/1000 population

    Are you still anti-war?

    Since the occupation doesn't keep accurate records of how many it had slaughtered, I's view such statistics with a great deal of scepticism.

    Notwithstanding that, you really should provide a link to the source when presenting an argument based on data.

    by this reasoning i would say that the world should have more wars because it is obvious that this lowers the mortality rate. perhaps if the world could have more wars and longer then truly this place would be like a utopia, just imagine how low the mortality rate would be then. thank god america invaded iraq thats all i can say

    According to UN statistics, the number of Iraqi's who died of starvation and lack of medicine due to papabush's embargo of Iraq: 1.5 million.

    Even granting the figures (which I don't), improving the lifestyle of the natives is not a sufficiant excuse for colonialism.

    "I will use force to help you against your will." may be an appropriate attitude to take with your own child. It is not an appropriate attitude to take to adult humans.

    Oh yes, the damage that colonialism has done to the US soul does not factor into the death rate in Iraq.

    I don't care what anyone says. Iraq is part of a mass genocide in the middle east being pepetrated by Oil-Hungry, War Loving, Fascists.

    So, you're saying that no matter what evidence is shown to support the other side, you are right? Good plan, you simple son of a bitch.

    Those are very vague numbers. Why should we believe your source.
