There were an estimated 600,000 political executions under Saddam, 100,000 Iraqi Kurds were killed in a single operation, the Anfal, and we also must take into account the civilians who died because Saddam refused to comply with the UN and have the sanctions lifted.
+1... are you saying that Iraqis killing Iraqis = civilian deaths on the hands of US? if that is your reasoning... you are so wrong. you can't stop civilians from killing each other... well you can try--and the US is trying but not succeeding...who said it was going to be easy.
