  •  And the displacement of 1 million people (5+ / 0-)

    Who had to flee their homes.

    What an utter disgraceful period in American history.  Who can forget the utter barbarity of bush who felt his 2004 win was a signal to destroy Falleujah.  Truly disgusting.

      Roughly two million displaced internally and slightly more who fled to other countries, most to Jordan or Syria.

      These refugees were estimated to have been leaving Iraq at a rate of 3000-per-day by December 2006.

      This is per UNHCR as of June 21, 2007.
