Warmongers try to save face by playing down Iraqi deaths.
Over at the main, British, warwank site, the warmongers are already chewing over the recent Lancet report, which argues that over 600,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war. The 'mongers are dissembling, arguing that surely the figures cannot be so high, can they? They scream that the report is biased, with research badly carried out.
They remind the Exile of those Turks who deny the Armenian Massacres, or the ultra-rightists who try to play down the holocaust. Whatever the true figure is, Iraq suffered a war of aggression: all casualties, from whatever source can be traced to that aggression. The blame for those deaths lies at the feet of the aggressors, and those who supported that aggression.
Update: The Exile has just found out that the methodology used in this report was also used to collate deaths in Sudan's Darfur region. None of the warmongers, from the Chimp on down, questioned the results then, so why are they doing it now?
