American led genocide of Iraqis "surge" to one million -bush finally succeeding at something

Most people are aware, I think, of the history of dismal failures of gw bush, throughout his lifetime, from blowing up frogs, to failing to show up for pilot duty as required of all pilots, to blowing it with a baseball team, to screwing up business deals daddy had to bail him out of, to his abysmal performance as president of the United State, to his inability and incompetency in waging illegal wars, his demonstrated inability to stop spending borrowed money, and on and on and on.

The only area in which bushco and the military have "succeeded" is in the killing, actually conducting a genocide, of the Iraqi people.

From Reuters comes this report titled, "Iraq conflict has killed a million Iraqis: survey" where it is noted that:
More than one million Iraqis have died as a result of the conflict in their country since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, according to research conducted by one of Britain's leading polling groups.

The survey, conducted by Opinion Research Business (ORB) with 2,414 adults in face-to-face interviews, found that 20 percent of people had had at least one death in their household as a result of the conflict, rather than natural causes.

The last complete census in Iraq conducted in 1997 found 4.05 million households in the country, a figure ORB used to calculate that approximately 1.03 million people had died as a result of the war, the researchers found.

The margin of error in the survey, conducted in August and September 2007, was 1.7 percent, giving a range of deaths of 946,258 to 1.12 million.

ORB originally found that 1.2 million people had died, but decided to go back and conduct more research in rural areas to make the survey as comprehensive as possible and then came up with the revised figure.

The research covered 15 of Iraq's 18 provinces. Those that not covered included two of Iraq's more volatile regions -- Kerbala and Anbar -- and the northern province of Arbil, where local authorities refused them a permit to work.
All for oil we could have purchased legitimately on the world market, at much lower costs than those of the war, and without killing over a million people.

Gosh, don't it make you proud to be an American? And won't it make you even prouder when we nuke Iran and kill many, many millions more people totally innocent of any crime against us, hostility directed at us, and that pose no threat whatever to America?

bush can kill millions more in the year he has left, so every country in the world better watch its a$$. He WANTS to use nukes. See Sailor's terrifying post below about five men, ONLY FIVE MEN, that will decide if it is appropriate to nuke a country they even THINK may have or be working on a nuclear weapon. But it's okay, one of the five is an "accomplished organist," obviously a quality you want among five men deciding the make the earth a smoking cinder so irradiated that no life will remain.

Except cockroaches. But I don't think they can play an organ.
