  •  And this is a success? (0+ / 0-)

    Here are the figures from this report and various media outlets, mostly reported here at Daily Kos:

    1.22 million dead by violence

    2 - 4 million have left the country (no one seems to know for sure how many have left)

    2 million internal refugees (again, no one seems to know for sure)

    26.8 million pre-invasion population (this we know, it's a solid number)

    This doesn't include the wounded and maimed.  Would a two-to-one ratio with the killed upset anyone as an estimate?  Let's say two million wounded or maimed.

    Let's add it up.  Around seven million people have been devastated by this war, twenty-five percent of the population.  This doesn't include the over 3000 American dead and 30,000 wounded.  My God.
