On the 5th Anniversary of 9-11

The question cries out for an answer:

Who has hurt us more?
  • Osama bin Laden
  • George W. Bush?
Doing the simple arithmetic does not give us a pretty picture.

George Bush's un-provoked, unnecessary, and largely unilateral invasion and unplanned occupation of Iraq (UULUIUOI) has cost our nation more in blood than Osama bin Laden.
OBL: Total Deaths - All 9/11 Attacks: 3,030
OBL: Total Injuries - All 9/11 Attacks: 2,337
GWB: Total US KIA in Iraq): 2,667
GWB: Total U.S. WIA in Iraq (not counting those troops wounded and returned to combat): 9,062
