That would mean we killed at least 600,000 in the intial invasion. Nobody believes that. You need to get away from kook sites like DemocratUnderground. Are you teaching your students this crap?
I think the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet are far more credible sources than unproctered and generally unknown web sites.

...besides you didn't answer my question..are you unable or just too arrogant to do so?

Icasualties documents the exact number of deaths for each month. I don't think hate sites do that.

I turned the question back at you.

The New Englan Journal of Medicine is a hate site?

What do you base that assertion on?

Only a coeard is afraid to answer an honestly asked question.

Do you know what cloning is? A clone has the same DNA as the source. The egg was just a vessel when used in skin cell cloning - the DNA was removed from the egg.

Ooops. Turns out you lied. The NEJM puts the number at 151,000.

On the basis of simulations that took into account survey sampling errors and estimated probable uncertainty in the adjustment factors for missing clusters, in the level of underreporting, and in projected population figures, we estimated that there were 151,000 violent deaths in Iraq during this period

NEJM -- Violence-Related Mortality in Iraq from 2002 to 2006

Other sites put the number at less than 100,000.

OK. Even if cloning can be accomplished, in what way does it invalidate my definition as you said it did?
