Putting Death Tolls in Perspective

I'm back to my Boingboinging ways.

I liked this link that was posted today. It puts the death tolls in the Israel/Hezbollah conflict in perspective by giving it a visual representation. With all the news coverage, it's sometimes difficult to see the casualties for what they are: lost human lives (note that the Palestinian coffins represent all Palestinians, not just Hezbollah loyalists). Another guy obviously had the same thought I did when I read this and came up with a U.S. vs. Iraq version. The next time George W. Bush talks about war strategy and the need to do what he thinks is right, think of this.
