My Tyrant is Better Than Your Tyrant 

I just figured something out. First, a couple of facts. The government estimates that Hussein was responsible for somewhere around 300,000 innocent Iraqi deaths during his reign of terror. And a new report just out estimates that this war has caused about 100,000 additional Iraqi deaths that would not have happened but for the invasion. The invasion is 18 months old. Hussein was in power for over 20 years.

Doing some simple calculations, George Bush is responsible for four times as many unneeded Iraqi deaths per month as Saddam Hussein.
