Iraq sanctions
    #2972383 - 08/06/04 05:05 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Some have posted here rather laughable numbers of dead from the sanctions. Even if we forget for the moment that Saddam is directly responsible for bring the sanctions down on Iraq, it seems the high number is, as has been pointed out by those not prone to exaggeration, bullshit.


Iraqi children killed by sanctions - 600,000

Derivation: in 1995, when two researchers from the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), whose report had heavily relied on Iraqi government figures, asserted in The Lancet that 567,000 children had died, a story quickly picked up by The New York Times and CBS's 60 Minutes. Overnight, an FAO extrapolation based on nothing more than a sampling of 36 infant deaths and 245 child deaths, had become accepted fact. Others later inflated the figure to one million dead.
Actually: The Iraqi population has exploded by 29% over the past seven years, from 17.9 million to 23.1 million, and that the crude death rate per 1,000 was unchanged at nine between 1990 (before the sanctions) and 1996. According to UNICEF, children under five in Iraq die at a rate of 131 per 1,000 live births, ranking it between Haiti (at 132) and Pakistan (at 136).

Exactly the level of response I would expect from you.

No mention of political leaning was made by me. Care to comment on the stats or are you too bitter?

Only that there'd be some type of juvenile off-topic response.

Good to see you not disappoint.

That is an intersting article from a very interesting website. Thanks for the link. We need to hold the media more accountable. Too much press release journalism without anyone ever questioning agendas.
