"Your 'reality', sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever."
— Karl Friedrich Hieronymus, Freiherr von M√ľnchhausen

Yeah, We're Winning

As reported by the BBC:

Death tolls - both military and civilian - since the fall of Saddam Hussein have far outstripped those during the initial period of US-led military action.

Numbers of civilian casualties are highly controversial and not recorded by the US or UK military.

Look at the graph. Notice that steady upward climb? Now tell me again, Mr. President, that we're winning this war. Zarqawi is dead, and the insurgency hasn't stopped. The simple fact is that the Iraqis do not want the Americans there. They never did.

And the worst part of it all: 42,358 Iraqi civilians dead since March, 2003. For what?

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
