Civilian Death Toll in Iraq May Top 1 Million

The British polling agency ORB, has conducted several surveys in Iraq and has concluded that civilian deaths in Iraq may top 1 million.

The military has said civilian deaths from sectarian violence have fallen more than 55% since President Bush sent an additional 28,500 troops to Iraq this year, but it does not provide specific numbers.

According to the ORB poll, a survey of 1,461 adults suggested that the total number slain during more than four years of war was more than 1.2 million.

ORB said it drew its conclusion from responses to the question about those living under one roof: “How many members of your household, if any, have died as a result of the conflict in Iraq since 2003?”

Based on Iraq’s estimated number of households of 4,050,597, it said the 1.2 million figure was reasonable.

    The republic is dead. Our elected lawmakers have allowed the Great Satan to be unleashed and his name is George W. Bush.

  2. Larry says:

    I’m surprised the total hasn’t already reached that mark.

  3. California Dreamin' says:

    I’m sorry, so Bush lied us into a war without an exit strategy, American military deaths are nearing 4,000, and Iraqi civilian deaths are expected to reach 1 million and impeachment is off the table?

    WTF is going on here?

  4. balkan says:

    Add 2 million Iraqi refugees, and you have the clear picture of sucessfully accomplished operation!

  5. Larry says:

    Bush is also headed down the road to have more U.S troops killed than were in Vietnam.

  6. Sandy A. says:

    This is so sad and unnecessary. The neocons keep talking about radical Islam yet it’s the USA who is killing more Islamics than the radicals. All I know is, if there is a law of Karma, I wouldn’t want to get within 10,000 miles of George Bush.

  7. TOM339 says:

    Bush is the Sultan of Death.

    No one was a more enthusiastic supporter of Capital Punishment when he was governor of that cesspool called Texas than was George Bush.

    As president, he’s been able to expand the numbers 100,000 fold. I think Sandy hit the nail on the head. Karma is mounting and it’s going to catch up with Bush one day. When it does it won’t be pretty.

  8. Christopher says:

    Johns Hopkins University published a report earlier this year that estimated Iraqi civilian deaths had reached 650,000.

    The size of a mid-sized U.S. city.

    If they’re correct, 1 million will be reached very soon.

  9. Larry says:

    1 million reached but never reported due to the Corporate Media.

  10. joost says:

    I wonder if anyone has compared the number of Iraqi civilian deaths during Saddam’s reign to that of the American occupation post-Saddam?

    Numbers like this would be extremely informative to me and I think to people who haven’t made up their minds about this war.

  11. Larry says:

    It’s pretty bad when the Iraqi’s would rather have a dictator of the past ruling them than the tyrant they have today.

  12. Jim says:

    Shocking, and truly a sad, needless statistic.

  13. A bloody statistic. And it makes calls to stay all the more vile. All those lives count for nothing to our leaders.

    LET’S REVIEW.
    FIRST DO THE MATH.
    1 million dead, 4 years in Iraq comes out to 710 a day that would have to die in iraq. to equal 1 million dead in 4 years.
    Lets do more math.
    25 million in Iraq,

    The UN says 4 million have left the country.

    The liberals say 1 million are dead.

    20% of Iraq is gone or dead. At this rate Iraq will be empty in just 15 more years.. lol… Why don’t you think.
    THINK>>>THINK>>> THINK>>> Stop listening to stupid people .. start doing the math.
