Lancet report on mortality in Iraq

The Guardian has the summary of a new report from The Lancet citing 100,000 civilian casualities in Iraq. Possibly more if Falluja is included (the radio today suggested up to 200,000). Violent death is now the biggest cause of death in Iraq. See Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | 100,000 Iraqi civilians dead, says study and the full Lancet reports at: The Journal : Current Issue.

It seems for some people I know this doesn’t count as a “moral issue”. If it isn’t then I don’t know what is.
