"One death is a tragedy.....
......And a million is a statistic"|
This was rather coldly said by a man who should know, Stalin.
100,000, that seemes rather high. I dont think that realistical the invasion could be directly responsiable for "that' many. This is exclusively civilan death, so that number seemes rather high. Now clearly neither nation involved would want to otu right admit to wrong doing, but there are other elements on the ground, surley some one know what is going on.
Now, mind you, the iraqis are now using civilan soliders to fight a war of resistance. That is gonna highten the number of civilian death, by 2 factors, one being inncoents in the cross fier, and the other being the US-UK forces dont know who is a Civi and who is a combatant.
This tactic is rather deplorable, and is highly irresponsiable. While i understand the iraqis need to strike back, they are needlseely endangering the lives of their fellow country men. While most would porbaly be agast at seeing me trying to place blame on the Iraqi, surely, realisticaly, they do share in SOME of the responsiblity for the number of deaths. Also a number of reports indicate that the majority of insurgents in Iraq are forigen fighters, which would explain why they would resort to such tactics. Clearly the enemy for the most part is osme one who cares nothing for the iraqi people, and will strike at the US by what ever menas nessicary, even if it means killing innocent Iraqi civilians. Perhapse the US should forous some more attnetion on the Forigen nations these fighter are comming from. I dont mean militaryliy, but perhapse diplomaticaly, and surely there are some CIA assets that could be used to curb this.
The whole war is a out right tragedy, however in a larger sense, all wars are, and there are no true winners. I have seen first hand what war causes, and the horrible effects, we have come so far as a people, and we have learned nothing.
