on the so-called 100,000 deaths in Iraq
Lenin's Tomb has some excellent coverage. There are many reasons why the figures at sites such as iraqbodycount.net are so extremely conservative. There is a difference, of course, between counting verifiable death certificates and surveying the communities themselves. And neither of these studies begins to tally the damage done (or about to be done) by depleted uranium, unexploded ordinanances, etc. As Jon Stewart likes to say, "Freedom is on the march!" Matthew Ygelsias has plenty more.
