100,000 "Excess" Iraqi Deaths

A study conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and published online by the Lancet medical journal showed 100,000 excess deaths since the U.S. invasion of Iraq -- naturally due to, you guessed it, the increased air strikes of U.S. forces.

Lancet editor Richard Horton pontificated as follows:

But these findings also raise questions for those far removed from Iraq -- in the governments of the countries responsible for launching a pre-emptive war

Well there are two questions I would like to raise -- did the geniuses at Johns Hopkins take into account that these insurgents frequently hide out among women and children? And with that being the case, why is it the fault of Americans or our allies, since these lovely insurgents know that the coalition forces are after them? Also, how do we know that these civilians are not purposely hiding insurgents? After all, it's not like the Americans deliberately go after women and children.
