Just Numbers

22,000 -
estimated Day One deaths in Nagasaki (9 August 1945)

23,646 -
estimate (minimum) of Iraqis killed in The Puppet's Oil War (begun 20/3/2003)

Japan provoked us; Iraq did not. In both cases, they're Just Numbers, not humans.

Unrelated: Katrina (Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale .. maximum sustained winds @ 175 mph) is about to Come Knockin' on Naw'lins ... then again, those are Just Numbers, too, right? Posted by Picasa
