In the process of exchanging “ideas” with liberals, I’ve found they don’t believe my sources and I don’t believe theirs, so the primary function is just an intellectual exercise. What I’ve discovered too is that, if a liberal web site with its blatant liberal biases, doesn’t conform to the liberal preconceived prejudicious the left attacks it with the same vitriol as they attack conservatives.
It’s most apparent when Iraqi war casualty numbers are given, those numbers are universally rejected. A liberal web site tabulating those killed, claims more than 24,800 have died in the Iraq fight for independence. Liberals universally claim “hundreds of thousands dead”
Saddam and sons were responsible for the deaths of an average of about 350 people for every day he was in power. Here’s the hypocrisy of the left: Were Saddam still in power for the approximate 730+ days since the war began, 255,500 more, mostly of his own people, would be dead at his hand.
So the liberal argument is that the unfortunate deaths of 24,800 in a war of freedom, is worse than the murder of 255,500 by Saddam. To put it another way, roughly 34 people have died per day (average including the skewed IBC figure since it includes suicide bomber murders) during the two years of the war as opposed to 350 per day under Saddam murderous dictatorship. The insurgents will be defeated and their reign of death will end. So I ask, which is worse?
