Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Discussion was re bombing.  See the Human Rights Watch analyses of bombing campaigns.

There are not 100,000s killed by bombs for decades.   The major impact from Desert Storm was post war, sanctions (including inability to repair bomb damage to sites such as water purification).  

The analysis showing 500,000-1 million (or so) excess deaths in Iraq since the 2003 invasion is credible, more or less, to me.  And, well, yet another reason why (ex post facto) I was right to have opposed the war.

Etc ...
