Bombing them into freedom

What price for “liberation“?

“Between 3,000 and 4,000 Iraqis are killed every month, rendering ‘ridiculous’ US President George W. Bush’s estimate of about 30,000 civilian casualties since the start of the war, veteran British journalist Robert Fisk said Wednesday.

“The casualty rate meant up to 48,000 Iraqis a year were dying in the conflict, ‘the figure of 30,000 plus is ridiculous’, Fisk said, adding that the West did not care about Iraqi deaths.”
