I never believed the 600k BS and less than 100k sounds a little more reasonable. Neither are accurate in my opinion but it does temper the stupid 600k claim.
What those on the right fail to understand – among a staggering number of other things – is that one death is an atrocity in an illegal war such as Iraq.

If none of the excuses from Bush and co satisfy the reason we went to war with Iraq then what is the real reason? I think there are simply two outcomes:
1. It was simply a war crime
2. It was simply part of the long Crusades we waged against the Muslims.

I guess Outcome #2 is the only one that would satisfy the right wingers since it would absolve Bush from Option#1 and besides it would justify the killing of all of "them bad people". This way their conscience can be freed; you know it's bad to corner someone with no option. Outcome #2 is the option, take it and run with it, anything else would be a call for trials.

To get re-elected and provide a tangible, conventional response to 9/11 – which would make it option one.

That's actually Option 1 if you think about it. That's what got us there: IGNORANCE and carelessness.

As usual, you jump to the conclusion that everyone considers the war in Iraq a mistake or a crime. I don't, and if you break a few eggs to make an omlet, so be it.
I doubt very seriously that anyone in Iraq gave a damn about us after 911, and in fact many cheered, so why in hell should I care if there are a few less?

Your hatred towards the Iraqis is simply as flagrant as your ignorance, but anyway...
Show us the omelet? WHERE IS THE FUKING OMELET?
