Iraq war deaths The number of deaths in the war in Iraq is nearing a half-million people, a collaborative study by U.S. Canadian and Iraqi researchers found.

Using data from two surveys, the researchers estimated 405,000 people were killed and projected 55,800 more deaths from migration into and emigration from Iraq because of the war, al-Jazeera America reported Wednesday.

The study, released Tuesday and published in PLoS Medicine, included a survey of 2,000 Iraqi households in 100 geographic regions in Iraq. Researchers used two surveys -- one involving the household and one asking residents about their siblings to try to demonstrate the accuracy of the data collected.

TVNL Comment: This study does NOT include the tens of thousands of lives destroyed by depleted uranium - a chemical that resulted in the births of horribly deformed infants.  Neither does it include the horrific wounds, both physical and psychological of the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq.
