So, you think that Bush only lied to you about the illegal invasion of Iraq? Silly you.
He lied about the ongoing cost of the war...He lied about Iran's military weapons...He lied about how he has personally protected the Saudis after 9-11...He lied about his own military record...He lied about his approval of torturing prisoners...He lied about underfunding the Veteran's organizations...He lied about building permanent military bases in Iraq...He lied about sending prisoners to other nations to be tortured...He lied about giving special favors to drug corporations, Halliburton, private armies, etc....He lied about using weapons loaded with uranium.....The lies of George W. Bush go back at least as far as his intimate relationships with young co-eds. The lies go on and on and on. It is his modus operendi. And now...
"CBS News recently released their study on U.S. casualties in the Iraq war/occupation. The Pentagon appears to be covering up the fact that when suicides by returning veterans are taken into consideration, the actual number of U.S. deaths exceed 15,000, far surpassing the 'official' 3,908.
In 2005 alone there were at least 6,256 suicides among those who served in the armed forces. That's 120 each and every week in just one year! If we add the 6,256 suicide victims from 2005 to the 'official' reported combat casualties; we get a sum over 10,000. Even a low-ball estimate of similar 2004 and 2006 suicide figures would mean that the total number os U.S. casualties from the Iraq war now exceed 15,000."

No reconfiguration of the statistics about suicides could ever explain the thousands of men and women who have taken their own lives after experiencing the horrors of our unrelenting and illegal empire building in Iraq. But, of course, the Bush administration wants to hide this from you. Check my sources, there is further explanation about these suicides.
