The 100,000 Myth

A highly dubious study that estimated Iraqi civilian deaths since the U.S. invasion at 100,000 has been often cited by anti-war activists.

Logic Times crunches the numbers and comes up with a figure of 7976 innocent civilian deaths.
The only way to describe the actions of the U.S. Military in its role of "occupier" is a compassionate and careful army that avoids collateral damage despite its dangerous mandate to hunt for terrorists and non-uniformed combatants hidden within the civilian population. It is nothing short of miraculous that our Armed Forces have been able to eliminate as many terrorists and enemy combatants as they have with so little actual collateral damage.
