How come the government numbers of 3,777 as of 9/7/7 are so low? The answer is simple, the government does not want the 73,000 dead to be compared to the 55,000 U.S. soldiers killed in Vietnam Iraq = Vietnam. What the government is doing is only counting the soldiers that die in action before they can get them into a helicopter or ambulance. Any soldier who is shot but they get into a helicopter before he dies is not counted.

73,000 dead amongst the U.S. soldiers for this scale operation using weapons of mass destruction is not high - we expect the great majority of U.S. soldiers who took part in the invasion of Iraq to die of uranium poisoning, which can take decades to kill.

From a victors perspective, above any major war in history, The Gulf War has taken the severest toll on soldiers.

More than 1,820 tons of radio active nuclear waste uranium were exploded into Iraq alone in the form of armor piercing rounds and bunker busters, representing the worlds worst man made ecological disaster ever. 64 kg of uranium were used in the Hiroshima bomb. The U.S. Iraq Nuclear Holocaust represents far more than fourteen thousand Hiroshima’s. The nuclear waste the U.S. has exploded into the Middle East will continue killing for billions of years and can wipe out more than a third of life on earth. Gulf War Veterans who have ingested the uranium will continue to die off over a number of years.

Wouldn't surprise me. These PNAC people have their own form of counting...

Looking at these numbers, it becomes clear why they're out of troops. But the MSM hasn't come close to reporting this. They haven't even tried.

I was going to say an interesting cross-check would be to research every military burial that's been done since the war began.

Why isn't there a network in this nation that will accurately report 17,847 "deployed" deaths?

It's on page 6 of the PDF report:

"Conflict" deaths = 13,517
"Theater" deaths = 4,330
for a total of 17,847 "deployed" deaths.

And there's this footnote:

Quote:
These counts reflect raw data that has not been subjected to any statistical analysis nor has it been adjusted in any way to make it a mortality study. There has been no adjustment to account for age, gender, race, and other items required for a valid mortality study. In addition, the data will not reflect the deaths that occurred after March 2007. The use of these data to draw conclusions regarding mortality rates will result in inaccurate conclusions. For analysis of Gulf War veteran mortality, see "Mortality among US Veterans of the Persian Gulf War: 7-Year Follow-up," Han K. Kang and Tim A. Bullman, American Journal of Epidemiology, 2001, 154(5): 399-405.


Also, it looks like, from page 2, they're including deaths from the first Gulf War and related sub-conflicts, "first year only," as well as "other deployments starting second year: 8/1/91 - Present." So I don't know if that includes Afghanistan, or what. Do you?

This report is a mess. The two Gulf War deployments, Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom are being combined, and it's obvious that playing shell-games with the truth is how those of a "government mentality" do things. Why can't we just have the truth?

The truth just might get people's attention. After all, we are all supposed to be concentrating on shopping...
