WAS I UNFAIR TO GOV. DEAN?

In the preceding post -- my comment about curing cancer. Did you think that was a little extreeeeme?

Look at the numbers …

Over the past 12 years, something like 7 million Americans have died of cancer, or about 2.7% of the average population over that time.

Over the past 12 years, depending on your source, between 500,000 and 1 million Iraqis and Kurds were killed by Saddam’s regime, or about 2.2% to 4.4% of the average population.

So, it’s highly probable that taking out Saddam was more important to Iraq than curing cancer would be to the US.

Was it worth it???
