I don't know about that. The figure seems pretty reasonable given the destroyed infrastructure, the deterioration in sanitary conditions, the bombs all over the place, the clashes between different factions, etc...
In fact, the figure Lancet's quotes is closer to a million. Their method is statistically sound (I've read the whole report, and the study is solid).
But hey, if you "don't do body counts", how can you be so sure that the British institution is so off base?
It's something alright. However, it could have been averted had Americans pulled their heads out of their collective asses and sought information back in 2003, instead of swallowing Cheney's propaganda like gullible kids.

It's your personal opinion. I believe that US presence in Iraq is a driving force behind extremism and terrorism.
Gee, you think...?
This is exactly the kind of arrogant talk that gives Americans a bad name. You talk as if they were savages who had no idea about the concept of democracy until you "enlightened" them.

Gotta run to school now. I'll take the rest later.
