This would be hilarious if it weren’t so delusional. In celebration of the 4,000th dead American soldier in Bush’s failed war, “Colorado Right” is publishing a mock news dispatch. Strangely, they justify opposition to this five year (and still going) war of choice.
In “Grim Iraqi Milestone” Colorado Right and “IMAO” (Imagining My Ass Off) seem assume the number of people Saddam Hussein would have killed would today be 200,000. I’m assuming a little more coherence than is actually present in the piece. (The parody can’t even keep it’s made up figures straight – on one day the number would have been 200,000 and “the 2000,000th non death” would have occured? Missing a comma in that 2 million?)
Of course the number of Iraqi civilians killed by the civil war GWB’s policy unleashed has been estimated at anywhere from 300,000 to 900,000 people. Humanitarian? What’s that? (From the type of nativist who derides foreigners, no less, we have an appologist dismissing American death to promote a mathematically flawed idea of “less” Iraqi death.)
The article goes on to describe the physical state of Saddam’s two suns in pornographic detail. It’s not enough to say they’re dead – this guy clearly takes pleasure in thinking about exactly how dead they are. To some people, many of them conservative, war is nothing more than an excuse to see anyone killed.
