The most you'll ever get out of Hussein might be a few hundred thousand killed. Further, the US gave him the tools to do it with, and looked the other way when he did it. We really still don't know what happened in Halabja and the alleged intentional gassing of the Kurds. Why?, because we know only the US version, which all too often turns out to be a deliberate calculated lie.
On the other hand, we can count many millions of unnecessary deaths to acts, deliberate, directly and indirectly attributable to the US. These deaths are not merely in Iraq, though the US is responsible for a few hundred thousand, but world wide. Japan, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Central and South American, the Balkans, to mention but a few. I suppose we we could count the millions upon millions of natives of this country who the American's murdered with no more concern than shooting ducks.
Do you think considering the number of people who died in American death chambers after being found guilty for crimes they didn't commit would be in order? How about the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, mostly children, who died because of the draconian sanctions placed by the US against the Iraqi people, NOT SADDAM HUSSEIN. Hussein didn't suffer because of the sanctions, and the US well knew he wouldn't and didn't. None the less, the sanctions were placed.
Americans are the most wasteful group on earth, and apparently life is among the things wasted with alacrity. America is also the world's capital of hypocrisy. American's claim to value human life too. Except niggers, spics, wops, gooks, nips, zips, flips, guineas, rads, commies, pinkos, and etc. I guess they mean only White people, and even then, if they're Christian and republican.
Do you suppose the term "entropy" may apply to American society? Do you suppose the lack of homogeneity in America has led to a sort of social "sludge?" Well, America was supposed to be a sort of social experiment. "Bring us your poor, your tired, your huddled masses." I don't think they really meant this, despite the fact the sign is still on the Statue. All American people, especially, the pasty white ones think about is closing the borders. George tells us terrorists are coming from Mexico now, and in metal shipping containers and such.
