How many did Saddam kill?
How many bodies lay in mass graves found in Iraq. Trusted groups like Human Rights Watch said the number ranged between 200,000 and 400,000.
Of course, like every other justification given for occupying Iraq the numbers have been exaggerated. A British newspaper says the number is closer to 5,000.
How many Iraqis have been killed by U.S. and coalition forces? According to Iraq Body Count, between 11,000 and 13,000. It is important to point out that one million Iraqis and Iranians were killed when Saddam Hussein invaded Iran in the early 1980s. Of course, it is also important to point out that Hussein was America's ally at the time. Just in case anyone forgot, here is the picture of Saddam with our own Donald Rumsfeld.
