Riverbend Has A New Post Up

Post to Twitter

After a long lapse, Baghdad Burning has been updated. Read Riverbend’s discussion of the Lancet Study concerning the number of Iraqi deaths since the war started, here. Among other observations, she writes:

We literally do not know a single Iraqi family that has not seen the violent death of a first or second-degree relative these last three years. Abductions, militias, sectarian violence, revenge killings, assassinations, car-bombs, suicide bombers, American military strikes, Iraqi military raids, death squads, extremists, armed robberies, executions, detentions, secret prisons, torture, mysterious weapons – with so many different ways to die, is the number so far fetched?

Many thanks to Sinister Girl for noticing and posting about this.
