Mass Murder Based on Lies: 1.4 Million Iraqi Dead on the Hands of the Liberal Labour-Tory Elite

Mass Murder Based on Lies: 1.4 Million Iraqi Dead on the Hands of the Labour-Tory Elite

New research on the war in Iraq has revealed that 1,455,590 people have been killed as a result of the as a result of the illegal invasion of that nation by the British and American establishment.
This figure does not include the 4,466 American soldiers and the 179 British soldiers who died in that war.
The war, it will be recalled, was initiated because it was falsely claimed that Saddam Hussein was behind the September 11 terrorist attacks and that Iraq had nuclear, chemical and biological weapons with which it was threatening the world.
As conclusively proven since then, all these claims were lies.
The blood of all the Allied soldiers and the 1.4 million Iraqis therefore lies directly on the hands of those politicians who caused the war.
In an explanation of how the 1.4 million figure was calculated, the independent American lobby group “Just Foreign Police” said that in a “country such as Iraq, where sufficient reporting mechanisms do not exist, there is a scientifically accepted way to measure demographics including death rate: a cluster survey.
“Cluster surveys provide reliable demographic information the wake of natural disasters, wars and famines. Cluster surveys give us the data about deaths in Darfur, accepted for example by the U.S. government as one basis for its charge of genocide. They are used by U.N. agencies charged with disaster and famine relief.
“In Iraq, there have been two scientifically rigorous cluster surveys conducted since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003. The first, published in the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet, estimated that 100,000 excess Iraqi deaths had resulted from the invasion as of September 2004.
“The second survey, also published in The Lancet, updated that estimate through July 2006. Due to an escalating mortality rate, the researchers estimated that over 650,000 Iraqis had died who would not have died had the death rate remained at pre-invasion levels. Roughly 601,000 of those excess deaths were due to violence.
“As with all statistical methods, the Lancet surveys come with a margin of error, as do opinion polls, for example. In the second survey, the researchers were 95 percent certain that there were between 426,000 and 794,000 excess violent deaths from March 2003 to July 2006. 601,000 is the most likely number of excess violent deaths.
“As of January 2008, a poll from the British polling firm Opinion Research Business contributed to our understanding of the Iraqi death toll, confirming the likelihood that over a million have died with an estimate of 1.2 million deaths.
“Just Foreign Policy accepts the Lancet estimate of 601,000 violent Iraqi deaths attributable to the U.S. invasion and occupation as of July 2006.
To update this number, we need to obtain a rate of how quickly deaths are mounting in Iraq. For this purpose, the Iraq Body Count (IBC) provides the most reliable, frequently updated database of deaths in Iraq. (The IBC also usefully provides a database of all violent Iraqi deaths demonstrable through press reports and thus relatively undeniable.)
“The IBC provides a maximum and minimum. We opted to use the midpoint between the two for our calculation. We multiplied the Lancet number as of July 2006 by the ratio of current IBC deaths divided by IBC deaths as of July 1, 2006 (43,394).”
The Lancet study already demonstrated that, as of July 2006, the deaths caused by the invasion of Iraq rivalled the death toll of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
This is a valuable tool for British National Party activists to use: the next time any of the Labour-Tory-Lib-Dem politicians criticise our party, just point out to them that we are not responsible for mass-murder on a grand scale, unlike the other parties.
