655,000 Iraqis dead, and counting…

I woke up this morning to a story on NPR saying that a new scientific study says the Iraqi death toll is something like 10 times higher than the Pentagon’s count and even 5 times higher than the independent IraqBodyCount.net (which is responsible for those cool counters you see on people’s blogs and which I referenced in an anti-war screed/blog entry two years ago

This afternoon I got an e-mail from the Democratic Party alerting me that “The U.S. Army has plans to keep the current level of soldiers in Iraq through 2010.”

And I suspect that even electing Democrats won’t make much of a dent in our illegal, racist, christofascist occupation of the Middle East at large. How can we get our troops home safely and quickly???
