War in Iraq

Above 600 000 Iraqis civilians were killed
2,5 mln. refugees from Iraq
20-120 new victims daily
Are these people guilty, that they were born in area rich in oil?
US government aims 8 mld dolars monthly for this war


I believe, that there are good poeple and good politicians in this world too.
I don't understand why they do nothing to stop this terror of one politician.
The evil is then, when good people are neutral and make nothing to stop violence and terror.

Re: War in Iraq

600'000 Iraqis dead, yeah right.
You take the most extreme source, the Lancet and you buy everything it says. I predict that their next count will be just before U.S. Presidential election where they will say more than a million Iraqis have died. Just you wait.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

and if its true its mostly iraqi on iraqi violence, and if anyone thinks the US is making any money of this war, then they have not checked the deficit....

It must say something of a people that when their dictator is removed they turn around and start killing themselves, lol...

Oh and Iran's role in this civil war should not be understated, they are helping Shiite terrorist...

I heard a historian said he testified to congress that the US shouldnt go to war because of the brutal violent history of Iraq, that it has always been united by the force of a dictator or empire and that whenever there was not that tyranical power there was bloodshed, he said unless the US was willing to use the same type of force then it would only turn into an iraqi civil war, he was spot on....

Re: War in Iraq

First, I'd like to say that I'm on recored as hating this war and that the US ever started it by invading Iraq. I do have to point out that much of the killing now is Iraqi on Iraqi. The US invading Iraq was stupid and just plain wrong but its not US soldiers who are now strapping bombs on themselves to kill civilians....For all the stupidity of the invastion, the Iraqis did have a chance to make a safe, demacratic country. But to do that they would have had to put aside age old differnces and rivaliries and they chose civil war. It was foolish of the Bush adm. to think that would happen, still, it was up to the Iraqis.

Perhaps the only chance Iraq had was to divide it into 3 seperate, soveriegn countries, but the fact still remains, the Iraqi on both sides who are killing fellow Iraqis, have choosen to do so .

I do agree there are never enough people who have the courage to stand up and say when something is wrong. We have some sorry, spineless politicians in this country, but the Iraqis choosing civil war aren't looking that courages these days either.....

well they are the one's strapping bombs and killing eachother, did the iraqis chose the invasion? no, are they doing the civil war? yes, I am sure many are just caught in the crossfire, but it is a power struggle between the shiite and sunni.

Of course they didn't choose to be invaded (and, yes, the US decision to do so was wrong), nor did the majority choose Sadam Hussein, yet once they had the chance to form their own government, many chose civil war over finding a way to work together. And those who have, have ruined the chance for peace for those who did desire it. We all get to chose what we do, including the bomb strapping Iraqis.....

Re: War in Iraq

This war will look bad for the US in history books. Taking out dictators is not a bad idea (even if its always suspicious when this new geopolitical strategy starts in a "oil" country), but I´m still amazed that american citizen thought that a president who hadn´t had the curiousity to go abroad in his life, despite the wealth of his family, would be the right man for this job.

Me too.....I can tell you I never voted for him. I have no real explaination for my fellow citizens who did. But both times it was close-with 50% voting for and 50% against. Add in those who could have voted but didnt' or voted for Nader and he never truly has had the majority of US citizens behind him. Always remember a non-vote really ends up being a vote for the winner....

61,000 to 67,000

100 000 people were killed there till the end of 2003 and now we have 2007. The life in Iraq during occupation is horrible tragedy for civilians. The one thing is certain. The life of these people was quite different before the war.
I don't take care of plans of USA, but I don't understand, why Poland is involved in this illegal war. Iraqis were never our enemies. It is real dishonour for Poland.

I don't take care of plans of USA, but I don't understand, why Poland is engaged in this illegal war. Iraqis were never our enemies. It is real dishonour for Poland. It is very painful and sad for normal Poles. Besides Polish government hides the truth about this war. News about casualties are given about 23, 24:00 and only in local news, never in general news. A few days ago about 200 people were killed, it was given only in local news and it was only written, not showed. But we have many reportages about II world war and former spies. Do we have to wait for the truth about war in Iraq 65 years?
What is the real purpose of the war?

The number of casualties in Iraq - 655 000 according to Washington Post ( 10. 2006 ). And now we have the end of april 2007.
It must be punished, only International Tribune for some politicians, who has brought to this tragedy.
