Day by Day

Adding to what Dave posted below, it seems somewhat in line with what organizations like Human Rights Watch have been saying for some time. This link suggests 290,000 Iraqi and Kurdish people "disappeared" during Saddam's regime. Anyway, I did some math and of course the numbers will never be precise but 300,000 dead would mean that between the beginning of Hussein's reign (July 1979) and his eviction (May 2003), thirty-five people per daywere offed by Saddam and his henchmen.
