Arne BS: US Now Officially Losing in Iraq... (165* d) RE: BS: US Now Officially Losing in Iraq... 10 Dec 06


Teribus:

Sorry Bobert, but I forgot to add - The Lancet article at no time ever said that 500,000 Iraqi civilians had died. What the article actually said was that up to 500,000 Iraqi civilians MAY HAVE died.
Ummm, no. They said the best estimate of the excess deaths that did occur is 600K or so. That is the mean, with a confidence interval of 426-793K (95%). So perhaps as many as three quarters of a million "may have died".

Cheers,
