[lit-ideas] Re: Victor Hanson in Iraq

From: "Eric Yost" <eyost1132@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>


Joerg: As you said when confronted with the death of about half a million of these Untermenschen in Mesopotamia, "Why not make them millions?"

Eric: That was a reference to Andreas' use of unsupported statistics, not to the value of human life.

Eric, you know perfectly well that John Hopkins University has estimated 650,000 people have died in Iraq.

It is you who ignored supported statistics because it is inconvenient for your position on Iraq.

Eric, you dismiss the value of human life if they are Arabs. You call for yet more murder: "Why not make them millions?" Who cares, if they're just Arabs.
