Joe Emersberger, who inspired the crowd-fund project that lead to the ComRes poll which this site is about, has written a great piece for Truth-Out about how the ‘calculus’ of which the warmongers and their stenographers speak does not, regrettably, include the number of dead victims of the Iraq invasion and occupation.

The point being, of course, that if the (already war-weary) public had any clue (which they don’t) of the true horrors of the neo-con adventures in the Middle East, they would have considerably less enthusiasm than the recent polls have demonstrated.
