Golden Globes to Honor 1 Million Dead Iraqis

HOLLYWOOD, CA– The 2012 Golden Globe Awards this Sunday will take a moment to honor the one million plus Iraqis who died during the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq since 2003. Once all the guests and stars arrive and are seated, a formal announcement will be made asking everybody to bow their heads in silence and remember the dead men, women, and children of Iraq.

“There are plenty of observances held for the fallen U.S. troops,” a Golden Globes spokesperson said, “yet nobody seems to be tilting their hats toward those who suffered as their country was invaded and torn apart. We were going to ask the crowd to observe one second of silence for every dead Iraqi, but that would be over one million seconds, and we realize nobody has that kind of time.”

To honor one million dead Iraqis with one second would require the Golden Globe attendees to sit for 278 hours, or for 11.5 days.

The commemoration of slain Iraqis comes on the heels of the official ending of the Iraq invasion. “I’m sure the troops will get a parade with ticker tape,” the spokesman said.

Although Golden Globe Awards directors will be criticized for honoring Iraq, they are not off base with their claims that over one million Iraqis met violent deaths during the U.S.-led invasion during March 2003. The numbers hash out according to Opinion Research Business (ORB), a prestigious British polling group.

As Project Censored reports: “These numbers suggest that the invasion and occupation of Iraq rivals the mass killings of the last century—the human toll exceeds the 800,000 to 900,000 believed killed in the Rwandan genocide in 1994, and is approaching the number (1.7 million) who died in Cambodia’s infamous “Killing Fields” during the Khmer Rouge era of the 1970s.”

This year’s Golden Globe Awards will take place on Jan 15. Check official site for details.
