Muslim Islamic NewsOne million Iraqi deaths

The Milli Gazette

6 March 2007

As of March 2007, after 4 years of war, the post-invasion Iraqi excess deaths (avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) now total ONE MILLION as estimated from data from the top US medical epidemiology group in the World’s top Public Health School (the Nobel Laureate-containing Bloomberg School of Public Health) at the top US Johns Hopkins University, published peer-reviewed in the top UK medical journal The Lancet and endorsed by 27 top Australian medical experts.

The latest 2006 Johns Hopkins data ( indicating 13.3 deaths annually per 1,000 people and an annual Iraqi pre-invasion death rate of 5.5 deaths per 1,000) yields an annual excess death rate of 7.8 per 1,000 i.e. 7,800 per million. Assuming an average population of 27 million this yields post-invasion excess deaths = 7,800 x 27 x 4 = 842,000 i.e. 0.8 million. 

However taking the 2006 Johns Hopkins data but using a Jordan/Syria comparative baseline of 4 deaths per 1,000 per year (as opposed to a baseline of 5.5 deaths per 1,000 per year for pre-invasion Iraq after 12 years of crippling Sanctions) gives an annual excess death rate of 9.3 per 1,000 i.e. 9,300 per million and post-invasion excess deaths totalling 9,300 x 27 x 4 = 1,004,400 i.e. 1.0 million as of March 2007.

The UN estimates that there are 3.8 million Iraqi refugees and WHO estimates that the “total annual per capita medical expenditure” in Occupied Iraq is merely $64 - as compared to $23 for Occupied Afghanistan, $2,389 (UK), $2,874 (Australia) and $5,711 (US) (2003 figures). 

The 1 million post-invasion Iraqi excess deaths constitutes an Iraqi Holocaust largely due to Coalition violation of the Geneva Conventions that demand that Occupiers keep their conquered subjects ALIVE.

Three quarters of the people of Iraq are Women and Children. The Bush War on Terror is in harsh reality a War on Women and Children, and more specifically a War on Asian Women and Children. 

This on-going Anglo-American crime against humanity (1 million post-invasion Iraqi excess deaths, 3.8 million refugees) has reached the magnitude of the British-overseen 1845-1850 Irish Famine (An Gorta M?r; 1 million dead, 2 million refugees) but has not yet exceeded the man-made and British-forgotten atrocity in British-ruled India, the World War 2 Bengal Famine (4 million victims). We are obliged to inform everyone about gross abuses of humanity - please inform everyone you know. Will the UK-US Mainstream media?
