estimates of the total war casualties in Iraq
Iraq Body Count project 95,888 — 104,595 civilian deaths as a result of the conflict April 2010
Kill tally: Approaching two million, including between 150,000 and 340,000 Iraqi and between 450,000 and 730,000 Iranian combatants killed during the Iran-Iraq War. An estimated 1,000 Kuwaiti nationals killed following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. No conclusive figures for the number of Iraqis killed during the Gulf War, with estimates varying from as few as 1,500 to as many as 200,000. Over 100,000 Kurds killed or "disappeared". No reliable figures for the number of Iraqi dissidents and Shia Muslims killed during Saddam's reign, though estimates put the figure between 60,000 and 150,000.
1. According to the 2006 Revision UN Population Division data, medical literature data, and other authoritative sources, the Iraqi Holocaust has been associated with 1.1 million post-invasion non-violent avoidable deaths; 1.4 million violent post-invasion deaths; and 0.9 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to gross US Coalition violation of the Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War which demands that an Occupier supplies food and medical requisites to “the fullest extent of the means available to it.” In addition, avoidable deaths under Sanctions (1990-2003) totalled 1.7 million, violent deaths in the Gulf War totalled 0.2 million and under-5 infant deaths under Sanctions totalled 1.2 million. Iraqi refugees (both inside and outside Iraq) total 5-6 million.
(1) 0.7 million (from conservatively UNDER-estimated UN Population Division data);
(2) 0.8 million (from estimating post-invasion under-5 infant deaths from UNICEF data and dividing by 0.7) (see "Layperson’s Guide to Counting Iraq Deaths": mwcnews.net... );
(3) 1.0 million (using data from The Lancet published in 2004);
(4) 1.0 million (using data from The Lancet, published in 2006); and
(5) 1.1 million (the "best estimate", from using data published in The Lancet in 2006 and using Iraq’s impoverished but peaceful neighbors Syria and Jordan for a comparative mortality baseline)..
The fact of the matter is, that at time of war, especially a war which needs propaganda to stay alive, the probability of body counts being even close to the true amount, is very low.
That I agree with completely..
Given the "lefts" propensity to fabricate anything and everything to make this out to be something it is not, the body counts are undoubtedly extremely exaggerated...
