Bush Vs. 100,000 Dead

Well, Bush finally came out today and made a real statement regarding the now 100,000 some reportedly killed by the massive and historic tsunami. It only took three days and a great deal of criticism for him to take a break from "clearing brush" and acknowledge what everyone else in the world has been talking about for some 72 hours (shades of his initial response to 9/11...or did it just take them that long to coach him on how to pronounce "tsunami?").

Now, what about the other 100,000 dead?

That would be the estimated number of civilians killed in Iraq.

Oh...I forgot..."we don't do body counts" (or acknowledged in any way those that we kill).

Acts of God only need apply -- no manmade catastrophes, please.
