Iraq by Numbers



The number of US soldiers killed in the conflict: 4000.

The number of direct relatives of the neocons who conceived the war killed in the conflict: 0

It's very easy to be in favour of a war that brings you huge profits and in which other people's children do the dying.

Well, this is what Bush had to say in a video conference call to troops in Afghanistan:

"I must say, I’m a little envious. If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed. It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks."

You couldn't make it up.
