September 2006

  • Casualties of the events of September 11th, 2001: less than 3000
  • US casualties of the (supposedly related) Iraq war: more than 3000
  • Iraqi and civilian casualties of the Iraq war: around 45,000

Tell me that's fair. More Info.

Update 2006-09-30: Civilian casualties per-day for the last two months: an average of 117.

Angus Turnbull commented:

Linking to the liberal media now, are we?

Why do you hate America, Matt? You're either with them, or with teh terrarists!

Jono commented:

civilian deaths per day for every one of Saddam's 8,000-odd days in power: between 70 and 125

Matt commented:

Yes, and if you read their analysis, the daily average since the US invasion was at 20 for the first year of war, and has now climbed to 40 per day.

Jono commented:

So isn't that great! The americans have halved the number of civilians dying in Iraq!

Matt commented:

For now. But it's also doubled in the last 2 years—where does it stop? 80 per day in another 2 years?

John Doe commented:

Sorry that may've been a bit distasteful. It's not good that people are dying. But who is doing the killing? who is killing the iraqi civilians? the majority are being killed by other iraqi people or terrorists who've gone to iraq to cause trouble, blowing up car's etc.

Sure it's not a nice situation to have nearly 40 people die each day. But I don't like to think about what the world would be like now had America and the UK not done anything.

Chris commented:

Do you mean the thing they did by duping the world into believing that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction? There are some shocking states with dictators that are doing terrible things to their people –far worse than Saddam. These countries will never be invaded. I wonder why the US, England, Australia and the coalition of the willing decided on this place.

George W Bush commented:

It's unacceptable to think that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective.
