#1 I'd be much more likely to believe a report written by demographers, statisticians, and military historians. Clinical medicine is mostly a soft science these days. Most of the doctors I know can barely manage their schedules let alone do real math. I'm all for free speech, but there oughta be a law about idiots making pronouncements about things way out of their field of expertise.

#2 When I first read

"Iraq War Could Kill 500,000",

My reaction was "really? Can I have that in writing?"

#4 Of course, the alternative is never mentioned: unknown numbers of westerners (and primarily Americans) will be targeted in terror attacks on civilians using weapons of mass destruction? Kinda clear cut, isn't it? kill them first

#5 And sitting by doing nothing while a homocidal tyrant builds and deploys nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, will kill how many?

80% of the worlds jewish population lives within a 50 square mile zone of desert scrub within a 10 minute SCUD flight from Tikrit, how do we answer the statement "never again" if we stand by and allow what is all but certain to occur by taking the "do nothing" approach.

and what about the people in Iraq? Is it ok for people to kill their own long as the smell and the mess doesnt get on us? How can we stand by and allow what is going on in Iraq to occur? "never again" to some peoples morality seems to mean:

"As long as its not in my backyard, what do I care?"

There are consequences to action as well as inaction, the left never gets this.
