The Staggering Death Toll in Iraq Using revised figures from Iraq Body Count, we estimate that 2.4 million Iraqis have been killed since 2003 as a result of our country's illegal invasion. Please remember that each person killed represents someone's loved one. These are mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters. One death impacts an entire community; collectively, they impact an entire nation.

Saudi Women May Soon Be Behind the Wheel, But Still Not in the Driver's Seat The biggest impediment for women has not been the inability to drive -- or the fact that women, by law, must be totally covered in public. The biggest obstacle to women's freedom is the male guardianship system. Under this system, a woman, no matter her age, is treated as a minor and must live under the supervision of a wali, or guardian.

He is willing to cut funds that help the poor, protect the environment, and promote the arts -- things that generally keep us happy and safe -- in order to fund a never-ending, ever-growing war machine.

Will Donald Trump Escalate the Devastating War and Hunger in Yemen? Greater U.S. support for the Saudis, who intervened in Yemen to try to stop the Iran-friendly Houthis from coming to power, is part of Trump's "get tough" policy on Iran. But further escalation of the war in Yemen, particularly an offensive to seize Hodeidah from the Houthi rebels, will mean even more death and hunger for the Yemeni people.

America dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016. What a bloody end to Obama's reign As drone-warrior-in-chief, Obama spread the use of drones outside the declared battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, mainly to Pakistan and Yemen. Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.

No matter what happens with the 9/11 families' lawsuits, two things are certain: One, more information will certainly come out, sooner or later, about the extent of official Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Two, the Wahhabist ideology that defines Saudi Arabia has spawned leaders like the late Osama bin Laden and terrorist groups like al-Qaida.
