Though attacks on civilans tend to kill large numbers of people in comparison to attacks on coalition forces, figures from November 2004 suggest that such attacks comprise a very small proportion (4.1%) of insurgent activity. The vast majority (75%) of attacks are directed at coalition forces, with the remainder targetting Iraq security forces.

...80% of hostages taken by insurgents, however, have been peacefully released. The number of insurgent kidnappings has gradually diminished over the past year.

Now the U.S. coalition forces are beginning to take hostages, wives of 'suspected' insurgents ... I can't believe they're lowering themselves down to that level.
What are they gonna do if the insurgents don't comply? Torture their wives? or kill them? Is this really how we 'civilized' westerners are supposed to behave?

So you are saying that the insurgents are only effecive at killing civilians? As they suffer the greatest casualties. And as far as hostages are concerned, the vast majority of western hostages have been killed.

I need to reserve the rest of my opinion about you and this post as it would blatantly violate the TOS...

The USA invaded Iraq on its own, it should bear the brunt of Iraqi freedom fighters. USA claimed to act for liberation of Iraqi people, is that achieved?
USA did not list Iraqi civilians as its enemies/targets, was it bad intel? Have US forces and admin reallized the fault, are they trying to compensate it?

Can any friend give statistics about civillian casualities caused by US forces compared to those by so-called terrorists?
