Red and white flags, representing Iraqi and American deaths, sit in the grass quad of The Valley Library on the Corvallis, Oregon campus of Oregon State University. As part of the traveling Iraq Body Count exhibit (not related to the Iraq Body Count project) the flags aim to “raise awareness of the human cost of the Iraq War.” The exhibit uses The Lancet as its primary source.

    This is such a good idea. Most of us have forgotten the human lives lost in this war. We turn away from our responsibility. If we were to ask ourselves if it was worth it, we ask only other conspirators, guilty like ourselves.
    We cannot ask the dead.

    And unfortunately according to Jeremy Scahill, the future is even more gloomy.
