ABC News: Risk of Violent Death in Iraq 58 times higher than before the war

It looks like the run up to the election is going to be interesting. The administration has been saying that the people of Iraq are better off without Sadam. That position may get a bit hard to support.

Tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed in violence since the US-led invasion last year, according to public health experts who estimate there were 100,000 "excess deaths" in 18 months.

The US-based researchers found that the risk of death from violence in the period after the invasion was 58 times higher than before the war.
