More on Civilian Deaths in Iraq.

This is on a Spanish language blog but we’re all Europeans now, aren’t we? Able, at least slowly, to pick our way through foreign language material?

It comes across as being rather angry (warning, graphic photos) and points up an interesting number.

Those killed by Saddam: 2,235,000.

Those killed getting rid of Saddam: 20,000 - 100,000 depending on whether you count excess deaths or directly war related deaths.

Interesting contrast between these figures and those from the left such as George Galloway, Mark Steele etc, who are still peddling the myth that 4000 children a week were dying because of sanctions.
