Wonder how accurate those numbers are. Seems to me that the Iraqi numbers are a bit low considering all of the "collateral" damage and such...Or maybe it doesn't count if someone's under the age of five?

Ms. Lori,

We can never be sure about any of the body counts, especially the Iraqi ones. We think the actual number of Iraqis killed since we "liberated" them is closer to 100,000. It breaks our hearts to think that children wouldn't be counted in the total, but then, nothing would surprise us at this point. (It would only make us angrier!)
