4,000,000 Iraqis Displaced
Cheney picking Iraqis out of his teeth, one civilian at a time
In the fall out from the war in Iraq 4,000,000 Iraqis have been displaced. Run from their homes. An additional 650,000 to 1,000,000 are believed to be dead. That’s an estimated 5,000,000 people out of a 20,000,000 population that are no longer there. That’s just absolutely evil:
Taking into account refugees who have fled the country, more than 4 million people have been displaced by the turmoil in Iraq, which has made Iraqis the largest group of asylum seekers in the world.
Analysis: Iraq’s ‘invisible’ 4 million refugees – WASHINGTON — The displacement of Iraqi refugees — close to 4 million — represents the most serious crisis involving population movements in the Middle East since the exodus of Palestinians in 1948, when fleeing the creation of the state of Israel, hundreds of thousands established themselves in decrepit refugee camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, as well as in Gaza and in the West Bank.
More than 4 million Iraqis have been uprooted — some during the former regime and hundreds of thousands of others since 2003. About 2 million Iraqis are in Syria and Jordan alone, and another 2 million are displaced internally.
