IRAQI CIVILIAN DEAD SHROUDED IN SECRECY
Independent rights groups list one number of civilian dead; "official" lists far lower number. Accurate counts are difficult because many people just bury their dead and no report is made.
I have an Iraqi-Canadian friend who I watched the bombing footage with (from the initial invasion). She totally lost it when we watched a man running from the explosions on a street in Baghdad... and she recognized him as a doctor and friend of hers.
God help us all.
In addition to what you mentioned, remember the 8 years of war with Iran, instigated by the US and which Saddam would have lost had the US not aided him more.
