How Many People Died As A Result Of Bush's Illegal War In Iraq?

Is there a number?

At this point it is ancient history and no one cares anymore. Get a life!

Depends who you talk to, OP.

Several thousand Americans killed with tens of thousands more Americans maimed and wounded.

Roughly 150,000 Iraqi civilians killed with god knows how many tens of thousands more Iraqis maimed and wounded.

The numbers are not precise because people always lie about this shit. (nothing new - they've always lied about this shit)

R1, of course people care about this. It is very important to understand history and the history of the United States' military actions.

You have to be an imbecile not to understand how crucial it is to have knowledge.

Back when I was still in college in 2007, we discussed this in one of my political science classes. My professor said some estimates ran as high as 600,000 direct and indirect deaths. Of course, it's impossible to determine a precise figure, but it's a huge loss of life no matter how you count the numbers. But hey, they're just brown people, right?

Oh fuck off OP. Bush had his vices this is for sure but he was attempting to protect our country. Move on loser!
