Default Civilian Body Count Astonishing

"Poor planning, air strikes by coalition forces and a "climate of violence" have led to more than 100,000 extra deaths in Iraq, scientists claim" - BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3962969.stm

Although probably an over estimate, other sources have said 48,000 iraqi deaths as a result of this war. Yet, only over 2,500 American Soldiers have died. so far, the number of iraqi civilian casualties has exceeded that of the US soldier death count of Vietnam. I pose the question: is it worth it? although not american, all of these deaths have been caused by failed bombings by americans, or for americans. Had we never gone in, these innocent people would not be dead. Whether 100,000, or 50,000, these people never did anythng to deserve this.

you can bomb the world to pieces
but you cant bomb it into peace

life is to short to make just on decision. musics to loud for just one station. love is to big for just one nation, and God is to big for just one religion
