Journal vik's Journal: 9/11 Death toll/Iraq death toll

As I write, 2,740 US soldiers have been killed in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion started according to official figures. The 9/11 Trade Towers attack killed 2,752 people, and despite any link between the perpetrators and Iraq was widely used to justify its invasion. There are still no accurate figures for the number of Iraqis killed, and no exit strategies for the invaders. For some reason, I find this more disturbing than someone letting off a nuke in an abandoned mineshaft.
