Civilian deaths in Iraq drop dramatically since liberation
This is startling news! It is a shame the media is not reporting it!There is much more including several charts.
Iraq has seen a very dramatic decrease in the number of civilian casualties this past year!
In fact if you take out that horrible day in August when nearly one thousand panicked Iraqis were trampled or drowned near a Muslim shrine, the year shows striking progress compared to 2003 and 2004.
The data for this graph was taken from the anti-war Iraq Body Count website. The tally includes all of the civilian deaths in Iraq since January 2003, two months before the War in Iraq began.
The totals include civilian deaths resulting from the breakdown in law and order, and deaths due to inadequate health care or sanitation. The site also adds in terrorists who died and other unexplainable violent deaths. It still is the best site out there tallying deaths in Iraq even though much of their data is questionable.
