New war targets 365,000 children and women (english)
18 Feb 2003
Based on a recent study leaked from the UN, the Bush war on Iraq will kill 500,000 Iraqis--mostly children and women.
LetŐs look at the demography. Iraq has a population of over 22,000.000 and like most Arab/Muslim countries has a low median age. In the total population, 46% are age 14 and under. Estimating half of the remaining population to be evenly divided between an and women, we get 27% for each sex. By adding 27 to 46 we see that 73% of all those killed by a Bush was on Iraq will number 354,000 women and children.

Of all those killed by this war, 97% will be Muslims, about 63% Shia and 34% Sunni. I should be apparent to all that this inhumane war is being marketed my racists, politicians and other war-profiteers who are happily looking forward to the killing of innocent Iraqi children and women. Why is it that American seem unable to understand such an ugly fact, that is well known throughout the rest of the world?
