The debate is raging about how many Iraqi civilians have actually died during this war. The New England Journal of Medicine just published their findings, which is different from John Hopkins University’s findings.
The New England Journal of Medicine estimates deaths of civilians to be around 104,000 to 223,000.
John Hopkins University has done two national surveys in Iraq and have estimated the deaths at approximately 600,000 .
So those who want to make political hay out of this will say that those liberals at Johns Hopkins are inflating the numbers to make things look worse than they actually are.
But the question remains:
If our invasion of Iraq has cost at least 100,000 civilian deaths, how good can we, as a nation or as Christians who follow the Prince of Peace, feel about this?
Evangelical Christians have been the most supportive of this war. I believe we have some repenting to do.
