Not even close. The low counts for Saddam run around 300K dead.


Hell, the UN oil for food, killed at least that many.


Of course, it was all the US' fault that Saddam & Co. diverted the funds
received from the oil sales to building more modest bungalows for him
and his winsome sons.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Right now, the suicide rate in Baghdad is over 1000 a month.

BS. The Marines are playing pattycake with them. We don't want to look the
oppressor. Thats for the Iraqi people.

Amen Kevin. "Bob Coe" provides no links or sources for the Hagee "quotes"
around which this thread was started. Next "Bob Coe" says, "...The U.S. has
probably killed more Iraqis than Saddam ever did....". And then with his
credibility challenged he slinks silently back under the rock he crawled out
from under.

The Commandant of the Marines said today, that his troops "will
not be able to enter Fallujah, Iraq for years."
snip
It's a sad day for the Marine Corps.


The real ****er is that,


No, the real ****er is that these alleged comments from GEN Hagee don't

seem
to show up anywhere in press accounts. Until somebody can point to a

source,
this sounds a bit fishy.

The comments he originally posted just did not sound right, or as if they
came from Gen Hagee; they are either faked or taken completely out of
context. Since he has repeatedly refused to provide a source, the former is
the more likely solution. Kind of hard to figure him out--one minute he is
posting gung-ho, support the troops stuff, the next he comes out with
garbage like this. Schizophrenic, maybe?

Perhaps the initial posts to set up some level of credibility/viewpoint,
then getting to his real point, hoping that it would be more believable.
