Good Point: IF KILLERS ARE IDENTIFIED BY THEIR RELIGION

Listen, how it sounds: Christians killed 32396 Muslims in Iraq.

- Get your facts right. The figures that you quote are taken from iraqbodycount.net. The figure of 32396 includes ALL civilian casualties (it even says that on the website).

Coalition forces are responsible for approximately 37% of these deaths. A greater number have died at Muslim hands. This is quite incredible given that one would expect a victorious invading army to account for well over 50%. Therefore you have proved the point that you were attempting to attack!

Who did the killing?

US-led forces killed 37% of civilian victims.
Anti-occupation forces/insurgents killed 9% of civilian victims.
Post-invasion criminal violence accounted for 36% of all deaths.
