Since the news will never show the death and destruction that war actually causes, let's take a little peak at a city named Fallujah. The population count for this city that we bombed the hell out of was 500,000 in 2003. Here is a link to some recent pictures, doesn't look like the precision smart-bombing worked well. According to a report from Johns Hopkins University, 100,000 civilians have died as a result of the war in Iraq. The report goes on to state that most casulties came after major fighting in May of 2003 with an astonishing two-thirds of the overall civilian deaths in Fallujah (roughly 66,666).

Just to put that number in context if any of you are familiar with Massachusetts, that would be the equal to wiping out the city of Framingham(pop:66.243).

I fail to see your link here Paul, are you suggesting that the women and children of Fallujah had something to do with 9-11? Are you even suggesting that Iraq had something to do with 9-11? Maybe you had me with the war in Afgahnastan, but there is no way this war has anything to do with 9-11. But thanks for throwing out the token republican 9-11 reference-that should help my google index.
