I'm afraid the silliness is entirely on your side.  I did not allege 
that Achcar had written the article, as you might have gathered had you 
followed what you're commenting on.  The cited source for the claim of 
up to 10,000 deaths in the first month of war in Libya was a wikipedia 
entry, which adduced a claim supposedly made by the ICC.  In the article 
by Achcar that you cite, he also alleges that the ICC are responsible 
for the figure of 10,000 deaths.
