Funny thing is, i remember when people scoffed at the IBC numbers for being too high. Now they get quoted next to the grossly inaccurate qualifier of "as many as", and the public in any case believes in a number half their current total. And why the fuck would you not count combatant deaths? I never understood that. If anybody has statistically meaningless numbers at this point it's Iraq Body Count and their cherry picking only the purist, sweetest corpses out from what little gets reported by a press corps that never leaves the green zone.
