Zogby 95% certain - 650k death toll accurate

Nevertheless, despite Zogby's assurance about the credibility of the study - putting his own worldwide reputation for accuracy on the line - the Bush administration continues to deny reality.

In fact, Bush has turned denial into a fine art.
"I am - you know, amazed that this is a society which so wants to be free that they're willing to [tolerate this level of violence].

[But,] 600,000 or whatever they guessed at, is not credible."

- George W. Bush

But, as we know too well from 9/11, denying it - however ardently - doesn't mean that it isn't true.

"I can't vouch for [the 650,000+ figure] 100%. But, I'll vouch for it 95%, which is as good as it gets in survey research.

"In terms of the sampling methodology used, this is sound and this is going to generate quite a bit of debate.

I don't think that there's anybody in my business who responsibly believes that 30-40 or 45,000 Iraqis have been killed, since March of 2003."

- John Zogby, Zogby International


"That was always a nonsense figure."

- News anchor, CNN International

Exactly, how many Iraqis have been killed since the US invaded and occupied their land, no one can be 100% sure. But, clearly - the number of lives lost far exceeds 'official' tolls and probably is close to 650,000.

One thing is certain - hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis know the Truth and so do their loved ones, who survived.

It is genocide - by any name. As a proportion of the population of Iraq, and mostly military-age men, combined with the permanent bases being built - is it anything but a permanent occupation while annihilating the natives -

of a low-population high-oil country.

And happening under our very noses.

Not under our noses - before our eyes.

The earth beneath us screams for justice while most people remain silent.
