100,000 Iraqi dead--THE LANCET Report

The new study released in the U.K. this morning by the British medical journal of reference, THE LANCET, is devastating. Here's how The Independent summarized the report's findings:

"The first scientific study of the human cost of the Iraq war suggests that at least 100,000 Iraqis have lost their lives since their country was invaded in March 2003.

"More than half of those who died were women and children killed in air strikes, researchers say. Previous estimates have put the Iraqi death toll at around 10,000 - ten times the 1,000 members of the British, American and multi-national forces who have died so far. But the study, published in The Lancet, suggested that Iraqi casualties could be as much as 100 times the coalition losses. It was also savagely critical of the failure by coalition forces to count Iraqi casualties."

This report underscores both the iniquity of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the moral imperative to continue vigorous agitation against the U.S. occupation even if (one might well say especially if) Kerry replaces Bush. You may read the full report in THE LANCET, and the commentary accompanying it, by clicking here.

Joschka Fischer has indeed a very controversial career behind him - from a "street fighter" to the foreign minister and vice-chancellor. This man represents the pragmatic wing in the Green party, and he must be credited for making Greens "ready to govern". Many of his http://canadian-online-medicine.com/pills_online/prilosec.html more radical party friends (like Jürgen Trittin) didn't achieve anything significant when they became ministers, simply because pure criticism of old days doesn't make any better government. As for the assault on worker's rights - their defence was never on the Green agenda.
I was amused to read that http://canadian-online-medicine.com/pills_online/premarin.html Mr. Fischer was not afraid to face Mr. Bush or Mr. Rumsfeld - why should he? Germany is still one of the world's most powerfull economies, our social and health system is relatively good, and unlike some other countries we pay our contributions to http://canadian-online-medicine.com/pills_online/flomax.html the UN. :)
I think Fischer is very much worthy of being given credit. Rather than mounting the usual puling and substanceless Green opposition to military humanitarian intervention, in Iraq and at large, http://canadian-online-medicine.com/pills_online/glucophage.html Fischer's stand-down of Rumsfeld et al was an articulate expression of frustration with the arrogance and incompetence of the Bush administration, which he felt would certainly undercut the essential good of ridding Iraq of Baathism. Fischer, along with people like Bernard Kouchner and Daniel Cohn-Bendit, is part of an intelligent, anti-totalitarian European Left. He is very much worth listening to.
