    With this in mind, we present (and hopefully discredit) the 11 biggest myths of Iraq:

    Americans have killed 100,000 Iraqi Civilians

    Insurgents only want an end to the “Occupation”

    Fighting Terrorism Simply Creates More Terrorists.

    The War was About Oil

    The War is based on a lie. Bush Lied about WMD’s

    The Insurgents are Freedom Fighters, in the Spirit of 1776

    500,000 Iraqi Children Perished under American-supported UN Sanctions

    Iraq is a Winner for U.S. Democrats

    “They” are Insurgents, not Terrorists

    Anti-War Activists are truly Motivated by the Human Cost of War

    Iraq is a Disaster

    This one drives me up the wall. Paralyze ourselves in fear of what might happen.

    I'd just as soon wannabe terrorists come out of the closet so we can see them (easier to aim in that way!).

    Fear of what might happen is why we invaded Iraq in the first place, isn't it?

    Damned if any of us know, but since Lancet started with the parameters of anywhere between under 8k to 100k, with the caveat of working on the high end, for no reason whatsoever, why don't we throw it back to them, for hard numbers?

    Aren't you paying attention? It was for the oil .....

    My point apparently zoomed over your head. Invading is ACTING, not sitting doing nothing in fear of the consequences for one's actions.
