Not only are American scientists wildly exaggerating the number of deaths in Iraq despite our peace-keeping efforts there, but the Iraqi government is making things look bad when actually everything there is fine and getting better.
According to the Iraqi Health Ministry, the rate of deaths attributable to the insurgency in August was essentially the same as in July--somewhere around 50 corpses delivered to the city morgue each day.
But U.S. military spokesman, Major William B. Caldwell, (CNN, September 11) reported that there had actually been a 52 percent drop in violent deaths in August as compared to the previous month.
As he pointed out, the Iraqis were erroneously including people killed by explosions and bombings. According to Major Caldwell such deaths are not due to violence and should not be so counted.
Let us hope that the American administration will take immediate steps forcing the Iraqi Health Ministry to correctly report the rapidly decreasing number of truly violent deaths in their capital.
As for those scientists, our new law signed by President Bush allows them to be jailed indefinitely since they are obviously aiding and abetting terrorism.Comment Posted By John A. Broussard On 18.10.2006 @ 12:53
1. The reort is bogusComment Posted By John A. Broussard On 11.10.2006 @ 13:44
2. It was released now by the terrorist-sympathizing,left-wing to embarass the current American administration.
3. All those Iraqis were actually killed by terrorists.
4. Bill Clinton is responsible for the 655,000 deaths, for the report being bogus and for releasing the bogus information now.
The answer is simple. No figures, reports, news, etc. in any way embarassing to either side should be allowed within six months of any election.Comment Posted By John A. Broussard On 11.10.2006 @ 13:36
And the study doesn't take into consideration how many Iraqis Saddam Hussein would have killed had he remained in power. By most Bush Administration estimates, if the rate of killing under his regime had continued, there would be not one Iraqi left alive by now.
The Iraqi just don't know how lucky they are to have Americans there bringing them peace, security and the blessings of democracy.Comment Posted By John A. Broussard On 11.10.2006 @ 09:12
No need to worry. We finally have the answer to what happened from Utah Representative Cannon: "These kids are actually precocious kids. It looks like uh, maybe this one email is a prank where you had a bunch of kids sitting [around] egging this guy on."
It's a relief to know that the FBI will be spending its time investigating those House pages who egged Foley on.
Let the Democrats try to make something out of that.Comment Posted By John A. Broussard On 7.10.2006 @ 00:56
Hastert is god's gift to the Dems. If he can hang tough until election time, it could even give them the Senate--maybe with a 52 majority so they can dump Lieberman.Comment Posted By John A. Broussard On 6.10.2006 @ 09:41
