Body count

Today’s Independent has a very striking front page listing all the names of the one hundred British soldiers killed in Iraq.

Which is all very moving and patriotic, but for the sake of balance I would point out that to list the names of all the Iraqi civilians killed by our military intervention would take at least 283 front pages of the Independent, and possibly as many as 319.
