That's the number of Iraqis killed in the past 7 days.

One-thousand-three-hundred people who would for the most part certainly still be alive if Bush's foray into Iraq hadn't taken place.

It's more than the total number that died in an entire year under Saddam Hussein.

More lies:
Two days ago Major General Rick Lynch was quoted as saying: "Some drive-by shootings against mosques have been reported ... that's where we are. So we are not seeing civil war igniting in Iraq. We are not seeing 77, 80, 100 mosques damaged in Iraq. We are not seeing death on the streets."

With what right did the Bush Administration decide the could destroy these people's lives?

If you supported the war before, you may want to reconsider the benefits of such a conflict, the benefits of overthrowing a dictator without a plan, the benefits of plunging a country into chaos.

If you support Bush in this endevour you can still crow about the school that was freshly painted and the purple thumbs that prove the people voted.

And I ask you: at what price?
