Is Just A Bunch Of Lies
The above figure is a lie.
It is an updating clock, meaning it continually changes as the number of deaths increase. Talk about blood-lust and vampiristic tendencies.
Notice the wording as well, "Iraqi Deaths Due To U.S Invasion." Invasion? Is "invasion" their new euphemism for "occupation"?
This is what they say about their body count tally in what is nothing more than an attempt to legitimize the number of dead by citing the Lancet Study:
The number is shocking and sobering.
It is at least 10 times greater than most estimates cited in the US media, yet it is based on a scientific study of violent Iraqi deaths caused by the U.S.-led invasion of March 2003.
That study, published in prestigious medical journal The Lancet, estimated that over 600,000 Iraqis had been killed as a result of the invasion as of July 2006. Iraqis have continued to be killed since then. The graphic above provides a rough daily update of this number based on a rate of increase derived from the Iraq Body Count.
The Lancet study was, in part, funded by Liberal Sugar Daddy György Schwartz, better known as billionaire George Soros, a Liberal activist whose well-known sympathy for terrorists and whose love of Socialism and Marxism, and whose hatred of the United States and our Allies, knows no boundaries.
In another appearance of self-contradiction and conflict, justforeignpolicy.com cites, their number of Iraqi deaths "this number based on a rate of increase derived from the Iraq Body Count." Perhaps justforeignpolicy should release their mathematical calculations on how they arrive at their number of 1,173,743 because in January, the number of Iraqi deaths estimated by Iraq Body Count was between 80,381 - 87,792.
justforeigpolicy not only begs you to donate your hard-earned money, they ask you to...
Fight attempts to minimize Iraqi suffering and remind visitors to your site of the awful human costs of continued war.
If the number of Iraqi deaths is so horrific and egregious to the Lefties, then I once again have to ask - as I have done many times - why they were so silent when Iraqis were dying due to embargoes and sanctions imposed during the Clinton Administration.
Madeleine Albright - The Mad Bloodthirsty Butcher of Kosovo, Serbia, Iraq
It was on May 12, 1996, on the television program "60 Minutes" with reporter Leslie Stahl, asking then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright the following question, and Albright's response:
Stahl: "We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"
Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it."
This issue is nothing more than the Left wanting to advance their political stranglehold by exploiting whatever they can for their own gain. Exploiting and over-inflating the number of dead is simply another play from their staid deck of cards.
Also in January, a far more reputable and accurate study of the number of Iraqis killed put the number of deaths at 151,000. BBC:
One of the biggest surveys so far of Iraqis who have died violently since the US-led invasion of 2003 has put the figure at about 151,000.
This is about a quarter of the figure given in a disputed Lancet article, but nearly three times higher than that of the Iraq Body Count campaigning group.
At the bottom of their home page, justforeignpolicy says the following about their organization:
Just Foreign Policy is an independent and non-partisan membership organization. We are dedicated to reforming U.S. foreign policy to serve the interests and reflect the values of the broad majority of Americans, rather than those of special interests both inside and outside of government.
Tom Andrews is the National Director of justforeignpolicy. Who is Tom Andrews?
He is a Democrat from Maine and the LEADER of "Win Without War," who served in the Maine State House of Representatives from 1983-1985 and State Senate from 1985-1990.
He then ran and served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 - 1995. He also is a contributor to The HuffPuffPoo.
In other words, Mr. Andrews has never really held a real job, he's spent almost his lifetime sucking the teat of, and feeding from, the government trough.
Two other names leap off the page of justforeignpolicy's Board Members:
Julian Bond, a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge uber-Liberal, and anti-war activist Tom Hayden, another huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge uber-Liberal better known as the former Mr. Jane Fonda.
Justforeignpolicy thinks they can be objective about the number of Iraqi dead with people like Andrews, Bond and Hayden on their Board? Don't make us laugh. .
Iraq Body Count lists a far more accurate and legitimate total number of deaths estimated between 81,525 - 88,991.
You can throw away the word "trust" in the saying "trust but verify" when it comes to anything reported by Liberal group like justforeignpolicy.org. One can NEVER trust Liberals or Progressives. Trust only in what you can verify with your own eyes. Don't take my word on this either, which is something I have always advocated. Verify for yourself.
Open your eyes and minds to the lies that you are being told by Liberals and Progressives. When you begin questioning them, and they respond with incredulity - along the lines of "how dare you question us" - you will know you have struck a nerve with them and that their defensive posturing is indicative that they cannot substantiate their rhetoric and falsehoods with facts.
