The U.S. invasion of Iraq led to deaths of at least 125,000 civilians (as documented by Western media sources). Less conservative estimates place the toll closer to 400,000 dead (http://www.plosmedicine.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pmed.1001533). Millions more became refugees.
In this clip from an interview with Charlie Rose, Friedman reflects thoughtfully about the human costs of the war he so enthusiastically supported.
Just kidding: What he actually says is that Iraqis needed to be told to “suck on this.”
