A friend sends an email comparing the impact of the Iraq war compared with how things might have been had the sanctions continued.

My reply;

I used to raise the issue regarding the UN report stating 100,000 children were dying annually on account of the sanctions, but no one who disagreed with the war in the first place cared. That fact along with many others simply don’t matter to most people in forming their opinion of the worth of the war.
