Further thoughts on the 655 000 Iraqis

655,000 sounds like a lot, but at an exchange rate of 1,471 Iraqi Dinars per US Dollar, it's as if just 445 Americans had died. Or, put another way, since 1 Iraqi vote equals 0 American votes, it just doesn't matter at all to Dubya.

Putting the 2.5% of the Iraqi population lost into perspective..."The five boroughs of NYC, at 8 million people, contain 2.67% of the total US population."
