Iraqui Civilian Casualties 650,000 Dead – And Maybe Even More

The Lanctet Study just came out discussing their findings at a Congressional News Conference moderated by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio and organized by him and Ron Paul, R-Tx.

As tragic as the American soldiers deaths are in this immoral war, the media doesn’t talk much of the innocent civilians in Iraq. Millions of Iraqi children have lost fathers and sometimes even mothers, women have lost their husbands, it is such a tragedy. Families are destroyed, peoples lives are changed forever, the land and air has been contaminated with depleted uranium (I’ll save that for a further rant) and the level of violence is unimanageable.

The Iraquis have loss of healthcare, water, inadequate electricity besides the escalating violence that happens on a regular basis.

Rep. Kucinich said that we as a nation are still trying to recover from the tragedy of 911 and what we had to deal with. But just imagine what it must be like for the civilians in Iraq to experience extreme violence every day of their lives since the war and to be experiencing even more deaths. How would we react if the Iraq situation was happening here? I don’t think very well.

We need to ask ourselves what are the consequences of war? And what are the consequences of war on general populations.

It is a tragedy that so many Iraqui lives have been lost and so many American soldiers have died, for what? To remove Saddam Hussein who we were told had weapons of mass destruction. To remove just one man, we had to go in and kill so many innocent people and destroy not only lives but their entire culture. The war has been based on monumental lies. It is now the time to do what is right as moral people. Bring the troops home and establish a U.N. peacekeeping force.
