I would as a US troop, have to say absolutely not. Have there been some wackos that commited crimes?- certainly! I won't sit here and listen to you stereotype every US service member as falling into that category though, because it's an ugly lie.

the question is how to count the the victims since apparently the lower stats dont contain ppl that have died in hospitals from wounds.

how many of these dead can be verified by hard facts versus completely subjective wild speculation?

What do you think the total civilian deaths can be in a country where 4000 US soldiers have been killed?

Vietnamese government in 1995 revealed that 5.1 million people died during Hanoi's conflict with the United States who lost about 58,209.

Ratio- 1 US soldier dead : 87 civilians dead

Remember more than 1500 civilians died in Mogadishu where a dozen US troops got killed.

Ratio-1 US soldier dead : 83 civilians dead

Now lets say 4000 US soldiers dead TIMES by 80 civilians(rounded off) dead per soldier.

4000 * 80 =320,000 civilians dead.

Those ratios taken above are only when the US troops is involved in combat
After adding what the sectarian,civilian,terrorist war/massacre has caused.

My conclusion is about around 1 Million Civilians Dead.

Thanks for making it clear.
So there are Wackos who like to have Fun in the US military than.

I won't sit here and listen to you stereotype every US service member as falling into that category though, because it's an ugly lie.

Where did I say ALL the US troops are Wackos and like to have Fun?

As long as the Wackos exist and their victims who have been harassed/raped/killed.
Than so will the CAESAR’s exist to stop this Unjust happening.

As was already stated, it's not even been established that a pregnant woman was there to begin with. The accusation, coming not from any major news source, has been made that US soldiers supposedly kicked this woman.

CNN, NBC and the BBC would have been on this by now. They are not.

Here's from Reuters:


The patrol "was attacked by gunmen and the soldier abused the situation and killed the two soldiers. The soldier was an insurgent infiltrator," Khazraji said.


Now continued:


The Muslim Scholars Association, a hardline group of Sunni clerics, said in a statement that the Iraqi soldier had shot the U.S. soldiers after he witnessed them beat a pregnant woman.

"His blood rose and he asked the occupying (U.S.) soldiers to stop beating the woman. Their answer through the translator was: 'We will do what we want.' So he opened fire on them."

U.S. military spokesman Colonel James Hutton said: "There is no indication that that is true and the matter remains under investigation."


And last, but not least, this isn't the first time insurgents took the chance to kill US soldiers:


In June 2004 two U.S. soldiers were killed by Iraqi civil defence officers patrolling with them. The Iraqi Civil Defence Corps was created after the U.S. invasion in 2003 and was the forerunner of today's post-Saddam Iraqi army.

How many carpet bombing missions of highly populated areas has the US conducted in Iraq? That number would be somewhere in the neighborhood of zero. Considering that the vast majority of civilian deaths have been a a result of car bombs, or executions vs. getting hit by stray US fire, you just can't take a statistic from another war, and extrapolate casualty figures. Nobody has been able to show where all these dead people are- somebody had to bury them, or see them after some large attack. Where is this hard evidence?

There are wackos that like to shoot people because of what color clothes they wear, what kind of music they're listening to, what kind of shoes they have on, because somebody cut them off in traffic, etc... There are also wackos that like to blow up markets indescriminately, cut off heads, execute "collaborators", etc...

452,031 dead? What method did you use to arrive at that number?
655,000 dead, 1.2 million dead, etc... are some other wild speculations that have been asserted. Of these 3 figures, how many of these dead can be verified by hard facts versus completely subjective wild speculation?


My method? Wild speculation or intuition based on some kind of wild sythesis and somewhat a joke, could be wrong as well hehe


Being serious, I've heard that in some cases, they don't count victims that die in hospitals later enough being lethally wounded. And somehow I have feeling that UN would be motivated to underestimate the casualties, for the sake of everyone's reputation.

[edit: typos, those great satans of interpretation.]

And there are Wackos in the US military right?
Now instead of dodging the question please answer YES or NO?

There are Wackos who blow and chop up innocent people but that’s why they are labelled ‘terrorists’.

I thought we already established that there have been incidents where members of the military commited crimes. Why are we still stuck on this point? My point is that there are wackos/criminals in all segments of society. Due to the selective nature of the military, most of these types are weeded out, which is why any attempt to brand servicemen as being deranged killers is BS.

What do you think the total civilian deaths can be in a country where 4000 US soldiers have been killed?

Vietnamese government in 1995 revealed that 5.1 million people died during Hanoi's conflict with the United States who lost about 58,209.

Ratio- 1 US soldier dead : 87 civilians dead


In a conflict involving 500,000 US troops and B52 Stratofortresses on carpet bombing missions. As already stated (by myself and others). Do keep up, there.


Remember more than 1500 civilians died in Mogadishu where a dozen US troops got killed.


Actually, 18 died during the "Blackhawk Down" firefight. And those 1500 were not civilians. A large number were militia.


Ratio-1 US soldier dead : 83 civilians dead


From a completely different conflict using completely different weapons and with a massive difference in the number of troops deployed.


Now lets say 4000 US soldiers dead TIMES by 80 civilians(rounded off) dead per soldier.

4000 * 80 =320,000 civilians dead.


Great, now we know what the numbers in Vietnam might have looked like if there were no ARVN troops, no Aussies, No RoK troops, no Kiwis and less than 20% of the total US troops who were actually deployed.


Those ratios taken above are only when the US troops is involved in combat


Those ratios are taken from a completely different war of totally different parameters. ergo: useless.


After adding what the sectarian,civilian,terrorist war/massacre has caused.

My conclusion is about around 1 Million Civilians Dead.


Great. When I want to compare my Honda CB900F with a Massey Ferguson tractor, I know who to call.

I will ask this question once very nicely:

Why don't you go back and read some of the points made as to why this story is by now absolutely fabricated, please?

The actions of a small minority of people do not speak for the rest of the people in the military.

If people want to focus on the negative that a few have caused, then it's best we drop it here and now. Why is that? Because, there will be no sensible discussion made.

Now go back and read, please.

You're comparing apples and oranges.

The Marine murdered a fellow Marine. You mean to tell me in the US, civilians don't murder other civilians???

I don't know why I'm wasting time answering this insane question, but the honest answer is no. The military does a nice job culling out 99.9% of the bad apples.

i came across the incident throu ats from here to the blogs and next day i read about the incident from bbc and a couple of other news agencys

ats-blogs / next day i read in the news

i think someone here pointed out that he couldent find any new body count for mosul either

wouldent that point to the fact that the shooting never happend aswell , but it did,

whats been reported so far in news is that an iraqie is in custody for kill 3 fellow soldiers for reasons not yet " know " or it could mean its under investigation.

If that's even replying to me.

Do you have any reference to back up that 99.9% you're saying?
