Has anyone looked into the human cost of the Iraq War? Political "scientists" talking the military-speak call it "collateral damage".
Don't get me wrong. I am not a pacifist. I was very much for the war when I was told Saddam had the stuff to create a nuclear mushroom over Manhattan.
Ok. Quiz time. How man Iraqi civilians have been so far displaced by the war. In simple English, how many have had to leave their homes for any number of reasons? Homes destroyed? Too dangerous to live in old homes? No jobs? For those and other myriad reasons. I didn't know until now the number is 5 million. Size of a small country. Human tragedy. Is Iraq today better off than under Saddam? I don't know.
