Indictment

Then there's the small matter of mass murder. That would be 2009 dead American soldiers and marines (as of this minute), 97 dead from the UK, 102 soldiers from various countries in the Coalition of the Billing, 60 journalists (that we know of), 276 "contractors" (that we know of -- mostly mercenaries).

And oh yeah, something between 40,000 and 120,000 dead Iraqis, depending on who you ask, but hey, who's counting? And we definitely aren't counting the starving children. Anyway, death is a small price to pay for being liberated.

But I guess all that is not a crime.
