Iraq Dead: 655,000?

The results of the first scientifically conducted study of Iraqi war dead have just been released. The number is too much to even comprehend. 655,000. 31 percent killed by coalition forces = 203,050. If that number is correct, we're responsible directly or indirectly for more civilian deaths in three and a half years in Iraq than we were during the entire Vietnam War. It's so hard to give humanity to numbers like that. But here's just one voice from Baghdad.

UPDATE: More from Baghdad, here.
