Iraqi Casualty Propoganda
One Angry Christian

From Level Head on live journal:

The report is here, and its appendix (with methodology) is here.

There are several problems, the largest of which is illustrated by this cartoon:
  1. The known bias of the data collectors on the ground

  2. The known bias of the compilers and supporters of the study

  3. The determination of the "normal" (Hussein-era) baseline for comparison

  4. The non-random cluster sampling

  5. The high margin of error

  6. The Fallujah effect

  7. The assertion that this study "validates" the previous one

  8. The history of problems with the Lancet's studies

  9. The Lancet's appetite for controversy
I'll look at each of these issues -- but there are many more.

You really should read the rest of this. The accusations without the background are just rhetoric. The background and proof ... is heavily damning. Kudos to Level head. That's one of the best summations of why this report is nothing but terrorist propaganda I've seen yet.

Bill Oreilly finally gets it
One Angry Christian

So I took a trip this last weekend to see my kids and since the drive there and back is around ... ten hours long I decided to download the last two weeks of his shows, and listen to them on the way there and back.

The second of his "No Spin" shows I listened to he covered the Columbia fiasco. He called what was going on there fascism. I was impressed. I've been talking about this sort of thing for months now. It seems like the idiots on the left have struck a deep enough nerve that they're finally getting some attention from the more main stream media outlets.

I've just decided to start sending Bill the videos of this sort of thing I find online. This could get interesting.

More leftist tolerance
One Angry Christian

Here's yet another taste of the "tolerance" the left will dish out if they ever manage to gain control of the US.
