The Lancet study assumed the death rate under Saddam as a baseline so that it could measure how many Iraqis have died during the war that wouldn't have died otherwise. Extrapolating to the present from that study gives about a million dead. So we're definitely in Pol Pot territory, but it has nothing to do with Saddam.

Who would have thought, 16 years ago, that the fall of the Soviet Union would have been one of the worst catastrophes to befall the United States in her entire history?


Can we all just agree that liberal hawks are all just a bunch of pompous self-serving, self-centered, self-aggrandizing, self-deluded war-lovers (as long as it takes place far far away and allows them to pontificate from a safe location)?
