Richard Neville seems to be seriously suggesting that the liberation of Iraq killed more people than died under Saddam Hussein’s rule:

No matter how you look at it – the US army doesn’t – it adds up to a lot of blood. More blood than ever filled the swimming pools of Saddam Hussein.

As previously noted, Neville is sick. Luckily, Dr. Tex is here to help.

Richard Neville? Jeezus, the guy was a has-been in the Sixties. Talk about administering stern chastisement to a defunct equine.

Saddam let the blood stay in mass graves. Presumably none of it entered his pools. Therefore a single drop of blood shed would be more than filled his swimming pools.

He's basing this on the fact that more Jews died during the invasion of Normandy than did in Hitler's camps.

Oh wait, that's sheer insanity. Never mind!

I see Adobe Illustrator abuse. Someone report him to the authorities. (My eyes are still smarting. Ow!)
