Notes from the Chairman

Since 9/11 the U.S. is directly and indirectly responsible for between 90,000 and 101,000 civilian deaths in Iraq (this is the lowest estimate, as other studies have found it to be a million or greater--specifically a highly respected study carried out by scholars at Johns Hopkins University).

Do Republicans still support this illegal war when their president isn't carrying it out?

How many more Iraqis must die to keep us safe?

Is this what Iraqi freedom means?

When we are attacked again, will you seriously ask, "Why did they attack us?"

Another estimate of the number of Iraqi deaths:

"Just over 85,000 Iraqis were killed in Iraq between 2004 and 2008, according to the first estimate from the Iraqi government since the war began."

We've only killed 85,000 civilians with no ties to the September 11th attacks. Don't they know they died for freedom? It was freedom right? Wait, first it was "a mushroom cloud," then it was the potential to acquire the supplies to create a WMD, then it was freedom, now it is just security.

Why do they hate us, why do they hate us?
