The death figures out of Iraq?

The death figures out of Iraq?

"Endless Love" is one of the 19 number one pop songs (BILLBOARD US singles chart) that Diana Ross has sang on -- this one a duet with Lionel Richie.   Tonight, November 19th, she'll be on the live broadcast (ABC) of The American Music Awards to perform and to receive the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.  Motown Classic has issued DIAMOND DIANA: THE LEGACY COLLECTION  to note this monumental achievement.  That's tonight and her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross (BLACKISH, GIRLFRIENDS) will be hosting the broadcast.

Iraqi civilian deaths across the country have fallen to their lowest levels since the 2003 invasion, according to UN figures.


Because while the deaths have never been accurately reported -- it is a war zone -- it's also true that Hayder al-Abadi threw a hissy fit and UNAMI, eager to appease the tyrant agreed not to include certain deaths in their monthly counts (that were already undercounts).

Equally true, they've never been more apt to count civilians as terrorists.  Strange that Ali Hadi Al-Musawi managed to miss Azmat Khan and Anand Gopal "The Uncounted" (THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE).

If they could stop pimping false claims, maybe they could deal with the ongoing horror that is the reality of the Iraq War?

An on-the-ground investigation reveals that the U.S.-led battle against ISIS - hailed as the most precise air campaign in history - is killing far more Iraqi civilians than the coalition has acknowledged.

And let's not forget the genocide, the Iraqi government forces killing Sunnis.

“Sunni genocide in Iraq”

So maybe don't applaud a figure when you can't prove the figure is factual?
