Simple Perspective on Iraq Casualties


Today at the American Thinker Thomas Lifson shows us a simple graphic depicting a very clear perspective on the deaths in Iraq vs. Suicides and Murders in the United States.

He writes:

Every single combat death and injury sustained by our fighting forces is a deep loss. But those who decry the 4000 military deaths related to the liberation of Iraq as somehow a disproportionate historic disaster do not have much perspective.

Now the graph to make “cents” of it all:
