Thoughts on 300,000

In a previous post, I may have made too much light of the estimate of 300,000 in Saddam's mass graves.
I am sorry if that was taken as insensitive to the people who were killed by Saddam.
My concern, however, was that the 300,000 number tends to get bandied about as if we had discovered 300,000 bodies in Iraq, rather than simply being an estimate. Perhaps it is correct, but I just think that the pro-warriors are a little too credulous every time someone accuses Saddam of something.
Given the neocon's record, I think that that is understandable.

That is all.
