Iraq Wars - Episode Two: Do You Believe In Math?




Okay...

I read the news...

I'm well informed about the world...

Dammit, I sure as hell know what's going on...



(...)


Let's say...

50 insurgents are dying a day, that's more than is reported with the car-bombs and such-not, so I'd say it's a fair number for my radical pinko ass to work with.

And let's say the war lasts 10 years...

Let's see...

Hmm...

That's (50 x 365 days a years) = 18,250 insurgent deaths a year.

That's (18,250 x 10 years) = 182,500 insurgent deaths over a 10 year period.

Hmph.

I mean really, that's not that bad for a freakin' "war"...

Hmph.

But...

An estimated 2 - 3 million Vietnamese died over that 10 year war.

Hmph.


(...)


Okay...

If that was the case, then over 10 years we have different math...

Let's even aim low...

That's (2,000,000 / 10) = 200,000 insurgents per year dying in Vietnam.

That's (200,000 / 365) = 547.945 insurgents per day dying in Vietnam.

Hmph.

That's 10x more than even the lowest daily news we get from Iraq.

Hmph.


(...)


Plus, according to journalist Seymour Hersh:

"There's no public accounting of how many missions are flown, how much ordinance is dropped, we have no accounting and no demand to know. The only sense you get is we're basically in a full-scale air war against invisible people that we can't find, that we have no intelligence about, so we bomb what we can see."

Hmph.

If this has changed I'd like to know, all I know right now is the companies that are supplying those bombs are making obscene profits, including Frank Carlucci and George Bush Sr. and Tony Blair (?) at The Carlyle Group, and Dick Cheney at Halliburton.

Hmph.


(...)


They must be buying a lot of bombs.

They must be dropping a lot of bombs.


(...)


I wonder if continuous carpet-bombing could kill more than 50 people a day?

I wonder how they target "insurgents" from 20,000 feet in the air?

IS BLAIR OFF TO JOIN $30BN WORLD ELITE?

HE'S EYEING UP £250K JOB WITH ARMS TRADE LINK FIRM


Exclusive By Rupert Hamer
Sunday Mirror, UK

TONY Blair is expected to join one of the most exclusive groups of businessmen in the world after he leaves Downing Street.

The PM is being lined up for a highly lucrative position with the Carlyle Group - an American-based investment giant with strong links to the White House and the defence industry.

The firm has been nicknamed "The Ex-Presidents Club" because it has had a host of former world leaders on its books including George Bush Senior, his former secretary of state James Baker and former British PM John Major. There a also a large number of former US Army top brass.

Aw fuck it, my head hurts, and I hate math anyway...

"We create,
The monsters we hate...
We debate,
'Til, sitcoms at 8...

We can't relate,
To that much hate...
We should hesitate,
60 to 1 was too late...

We create,
The monsters we hate...
We debate,
'Til, sitcoms at 8...

We can't relate,
To that much hate...
We should hesitate,
3 million was too late..."
