150,000 Iraqis killed by insurgents
|150,000 killed by insurgents since the March 2003 invasion? 3 times that wounded? I know the Iraqis are the main targets of the insurgents, an attempt to dissuade them from joining Iraqi police and military forces and fighting with coalition troops, but that number seems way too high...|
Hey, al-Shermari, we'd love to hand the Iraqis full control of the police and miltary to you if you could function without our support. The American people certainly don't want to be in Iraq any longer than we have too. But listening to the Health Minister, you ought to know the full story.
He neglected to explain how he reached the 150,000 which is three times most other estimates. He is also a member of Muqtada al-Sadr militia which was the apparent impetus of a raid on his office last August and the arrest of several of his guards.
Think that it's possible that he has his own agenda?
