Look Whose Talking

Two sites that have been quite for a while are back! First Bill Whittle has a rather short post on new math. Here is a taste:

During the 30-odd years he was in power, Saddam Hussein murdered at least 300,000 of his own people. These are the ones we are finding in mass graves in Iraq. Another 300,000 at least were killed in his war with Iran and his two conflicts with the US. Those are bare-bones, undeniable, non-speculative, minimums.

That darling arithmetic works out to no less than 20,000 people a year killed by that lunatic, or about 1,700 people a month.

So how many innocent people have not died as a result of the Iraq war?

I get about 13,000 so far.

Second, Courtney has returned after an extended absence and she's talking about the Bush visit to Iraq. Here is one of the questions she posses:
That's an aspect of American culture that I've been reflecting on recently: are we too politically savvy? Aren't there times when a good deed or unnecessary courage or a simple turkey dinner is just that? Simple?
