Saddam By The Numbers
Confederate Yankee takes the new propaganda figures floated by the Left of the number of Iraqis killed in the Iraq war, downsized from the previously preposterous 600,000 to a merely absurd 150,000.
CY accepts the high 150,000 number and calculates that over the first three years of the war that the number covers that comes to about 126 deaths per day.
However, CY calculates that nearly 1.9 million people were killed by Saddam, including the unnecessary deaths in his thwarted wars of conquest in Iran and Kuwait. When that number is distributed over Saddam's 24 year reign, that comes to 235 people killed, on average, per day. And it wouldn't have stopped.
