TPMmuckraker September 10, 2007 11:49 AM: "It took some time and effort, but, with the aid of TPM readers, we've obtained two complete lists of monthly Iraqi civilian casualties from January 2006 forward.

Most importantly the people who are a million plus who are killed in Iraq by American terrorism are as innocent as the New York attack and the Pennsylvania but Americans don’t think that it is a correct comparison. The blood of Americans is more pure, Americans have a right to murder people of other nations without being accountable, Americans are always right. It is in that false premises they started the war. Just like Hitler’s Germany Bush’s America too prefer to go to the road to disaster. Today the commander of the American terrorist forces in Iraq testify in front of the war monger bunches in Washi…
