Latest on Iraq

According to the UK-based Iraq Body Count, more than 24,860 civillians have been killed since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Of those killed, 82% were adult males and 18% were women and children.

I don't know about you but to me those come across as some pretty startling facts. I mean just look at the number of women and children killed - 18% of 24,860. That equates upto 4,475 women and children killed for something they knew nothing about. All this bloodshed for revenge against crimes they didn't commit?

You don't have to be an engineer to realize that something is wrong with the whole Iraq equation...

I'm not justifying it, but don't forget that that number would probaly include those killed by suicide bombers. Such as the 20 or kids killed just after 7/7. It is all part of the same thing and worthy of being noted.

Imagine those kids survived the war against them only to get blown up, or the many more who must have been severley injured. Very sad.

While the totals are horrific you should not forget what Iraqi was like prior to the war. Torture (remember the soccer team), rape houses, mass graves. And you should remember we are trying to end the violence, that is affecting their lives.

God, the contortions you people go to to not have to admit that you were tricked into supporting a war that no-one but the war profiteers wanted.

And save your breath. The whole sordid thing is starting to unravel now, and you will only embarass yourselves further.

I don't mean to sound heartless, but we need to remember how and why this started in the first place: 9-11 REMEMBER that?? War is horrific for everyone involved. There is always going to be innocent casualties in any war that's a fact that no one can avoid as much as we would like to. Nobody likes war, but sometimes it is necessary.
