US Iraqi Holocaust And One Million Excess Deaths

By Dr Gideon Polya

07 February, 2007

It is nearly the Fourth Anniversary of the illegal 
Anglo-American-Australian-Coalition invasion of Iraq. What has been the economic
and human cost of Bush¹s Iraq War?

In short, as of February 2007: (a) the accrual cost has been $2.3 TRILLION; (b) 
there are 3.7 million Iraqi refugees; (c) the post-invasion excess deaths 
(avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) total 1.0 million (ONE 
MILLION); (d) post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.6 million; (e) there 
were 1.7 million excess Iraqi deaths associated with the Western-imposed 
1990-2003 Sanctions War; (f) there were 1.2 million under-5 year old infant 
deaths in the 1990-2003 Sanctions War (see: 
); and (g) Coalition deaths total about 3,360. These horrifying estimates from 
authoritative sources are amplified and documented below.

(a) ECONOMIC COST TO USA. The accrual cost of the Iraq War (i.e. the total, 
long-term committed cost, not just the Congressional allocation as measured by 
³cost accounting²) is $2.3 trillion according to the 2001 Economics Nobel 
Laureate US Professor Joseph Stiglitz (Columbia University) and his Harvard 
colleague Professor Linda Bilmes (see: 

(b) IRAQI REFUGEES. The number of Iraqi refugees now total 3.7 million - 2.0 
million outside Iraq and 1.7 million inside Iraq – and UNHCR predicts that there
will be up to 2.3 million internally displaced people within Iraq by the end of 
this year. (see: 

(c) POST-INVASION IRAQI EXCESS DEATHS. In October 2006 an estimate of ³655,000 
post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Iraq as of July 2006² came from a top 
medical epidemiology research team in America's (and the World's) top Public 
Health Department (the Bloomberg School of Public Health) at a top US university
(Johns Hopkins) and was published peer-reviewed in a top medical journal (The 
Lancet) and endorsed by 27 top Australian medical experts in the area (see: MWC 

Consider the following estimate from the Johns Hopkins medical scientists of 
"annual death rate per 1,000 of population" of 13.3 (post-invasion Iraq) as 
compared to (a) 5.5 (for pre-invasion Iraq after 12 years of crippling 
Sanctions) and (b) 4.0 (for Iraq's resource-poor but peaceful neighbours Syria 
and Jordan; UN Population Division data: 
<> ).

The "post-invasion excess death rate/1000 of population" was 13.3 - 5.5 = 7.8 
(Comparison A) or 13.3 - 4.0 = 9.3 (Comparison B). Assuming an average 
population of 27 million, the "post-invasion excess deaths" total (over 4 years 
i.e. as of February 2007) (A) 7.8 x 2,700 x 4 = 842,000 and (B) 9.3 x 2,700 x 4 
= 1,004,400 i.e. ONE MILLION.

under-5 infant deaths total 0.6 million as determined from UN Population 
Division data (see: ). 90% of these under-5 infant deaths have been avoidable 
and are due to gross Occupier violation of the Geneva Conventions (see: 
<> ).

(e) SANCTIONS WAR EXCESS DEATHS (1990-2003). Excess deaths in Iraq during the 
1990-2003 Sanctions War totalled 1.7 million (from UN Population Division data: ).

(f) SANCTIONS WAR UNDER-5 INFANT DEATHS (1990-2003). The Iraqi under-5 infant 
deaths (1990-2003) totalled 1.2 million as determined from UN Population 
Division data (see: <> ). 90% of 
these under-5 infant deaths were avoidable.

military deaths total about 3,360 of whom 3,100 were American (see: 
<> ).

The carnage in Iraq constitutes a continuing US-driven Iraqi Genocide (Genocide 
as clearly defined by Article II subsections (a) -(d) of the 
Internationally-agreed UN Genocide Convention: 
) and an Iraqi Holocaust in comparison with the World War 2 Jewish Holocaust 
(5-6 million victims and the man-made World War 2 Bengali Holocaust in 
British-occupied India (4 million victims). Most of the victims have been Women 
and Children and the carnage is largely due to gross, war criminal Occupier 
violation of the Geneva Conventions which demand that Occupiers do everything 
within their power to keep their Conquered Subjects ALIVE (see Articles 55 and 
56 in particular of the Geneva Conventions relating to civilians: 

After 4 years of illegal, violent Occupation the post-invasion excess deaths in 
Occupied Iraq total ONE MILLION (from UN Population Division and medical 
literature data as outlined above). Taken together with 1.7 million excess 
deaths in the 1990-2003 Sanctions War (UN Population Division) and 3.7 million 
Iraqi refugees (UNHCR), this constitutes an Iraqi Genocide (as defined by the UN
Genocide Convention) and an Iraqi Holocaust in comparison with the WW2 Jewish 
Holocaust (5-6 million victims) and the ³forgotten² WW2 British-caused WW2 
Bengali Holocaust (4 million victims). The Iraqi under-5 infant deaths 
(1990-2007) now total 1.8 million, 90% having been avoidable and due to Western 
war crimes. Total Iraqi excess deaths (1990-2007) total 2.7 million. The 
post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan now total 2.2 million and 
Afghan refugees total about 3.7 million (see: 

Three quarters of the people of Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan are Women
and Children – the Bush War on Terror is in horrible reality a cowardly War on 
Women and Children, a War on Asian Women and Children and a War on Muslim Women 
and Children.

Ordinary Germans claimed in 1945 that they ³didn¹t know² about the Holocaust. 
Notwithstanding the racism, lying and holocaust-ignoring of Mainstream media, 
Americans (and British, Australian, Coalition and NATO country citizens) do not 
have the same excuse – the awful truth is only a few mouse-clicks away. Thus 
inspection of the UNICEF site (see: 
) will quickly inform one that 0.5 million under-5 year old children die each 
year in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories i.e. 1,300 each day, ONE PER 
MINUTE – this being largely due to gross Occupier violation of the Geneva 
Conventions that demand that the Occupier keeps its Conquered Subjects ALIVE 

What should decent people do about the on-going Iraqi Genocide or Iraqi 
Holocaust and the on-going Afghan Genocide or Afghan Holocaust?

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent people
are morally obliged to (a) inform others about this carnage (lying, racist, 
holocaust-ignoring Mainstream media certainly won¹t) and (b) act ethically in 
all their personal and business dealings with those complicit in this continuing
atrocity. The horrendous magnitude of the carnage in these on-going holocausts 
demands international Sanctions and Boycotts against the US Alliance countries.

Americans, British, Australians – and indeed any people – who knowingly ignore, 
deny, excuse, minimize, obfuscate, advocate, support or effect gross abuses of 
Women and Children (as in Iraq and Afghanistan) – or indeed of anyone – have 
crossed the line separating decent humanity from Nazi-style barbarism. Thus 
Westerners should simply NEVER AGAIN vote for those responsible for the on-going
Iraqi Holocaust and the on-going Afghan Holocaust.

Mainstream media notoriously continue to deny the horrendous actuality of the 
carnage in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan where the post-invasion excess
deaths (avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) now total 1.0 
MILLION and 2.2 MILLION, respectively (see: 
<> and 
specifically: <> and 
<> ). Decent people should simply eschew
these holocaust-complicit media.

Those primarily responsible for the carnage of the Iraqi Holocaust and the 
Afghan Holocaust - Bush, Blair, Dr Rice (Dr Death) and their Coalition and NATO 
confreres such as Australia¹s Howard and Canada¹s Harper - should be arraigned 
and tried before the International Criminal Court as demanded by 2005 Literature

Dr Gideon Polya published some 130 works in a 4 decade scientific career, most 
recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant 
Bioactive Compounds" (Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003). He is a 
Melbourne scientist and writer and is currently editing a completed book on 
global avoidable mortality (numerous articles on this matter can be found by a 
simple Google search for "Gideon Polya" and on his websites:
