Mileposts, Benchmarks, Timelines & Bullshit

Narrated by Glenn Kutler, iCasualties.org

Dec. 11, 2006:
Three years and nine months after the U.S.-led Coalition began its war against Saddam Hussein, researchers have quietly recorded another grim milestone in the cost of the conflict. American military casualties have now exceeded 25,000.


  1. Throw in those with mental health issues because on Iraq and you have a huge increase in the total count. And add family members as well.

  2. These people were sacrificed to the oil god. Big business prepared their deaths.
    For money that we do not , and did not need.
    Does it seem that this whole thing is spinning way out of control now.?

    That is a rhetorical question.

  3. The bullshit part of this equation is the number I assume. The US does not always count Iraqi civilians when it gets around to counting. They are not considered important to the mission. I have read numbers two and three times as high as this and it is depressing. It is also hard to grasp. Someone once wrote that one death is a tragedy but 100 death is a statistic.
