WMDs found in Iraq...

This may seem like a little bit of old news but The Washington Post has reported that WMDs have been found in Iraq. Finally the trail of lies and deception can be put to rest:
BAGHDAD, Aug. 13 -- U.S. troops raiding a warehouse in the northern city of Mosul uncovered a suspected chemical weapons factory containing 1,500 gallons of chemicals believed destined for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces and civilians, military officials said Saturday.

This means that George W. Bush wasn't telling porky lies all along. Does this mean that the war in Iraq was justified? I just might have to eat my hat. But wait...
[Lt. Col. Steven A.] Boylan said the suspected lab was new, dating from some time after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Oops...

So the removal of Saddam actually helped these people start up their own chemical lab. Nice work guys.

Adds an element of humanity to the numbers.

I wonder what the list for the Iraqi people looks like?

These guys take media reports of Iraqi deaths to compile their numbers. Therefore they can be a bit vague.

The current estimate is:
- Minimum: 23601
- Maximum: 26719

And the USians are whinging about a measly 1800 deaths.
