Keep up-to-date with the civilian body count....

I was doing some web "sniffing" and I found this very excellent page. No more bullshit, actual numbers:

http://www.iraqbodycount.net/bodycount.htm

According to the Alternative Press, Bush is begining to tell people that the war will not be over as soon as he thought. That's a surprise.

If someone knows of a website that lists American casualities (in a rather objective manner, like the one above) please post it here. It's important that we see what this "war" is really costing everyone...

Nice find. 307 (the maximum estimate) is lower than I thought it would be.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S.

Thank ya  :cool:  This number is much lower than I had previously thought also.  The page looks like it's updated constantly, so we'll see where that number stands by the end of the war.

the total is relatively low, but if the US/UK forces are to make any real progress(securing more than just open desert) then this number will increase at least tenfold...sooner or later you've got to take the cities haven't you?

I don't doubt that that number will rise......but to what degree? I haven't checked out the Afghanistan count yet....going right now.

We'll just have to see how it turns out.

So no bitching until the number is higher than expected.

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

do you have a no bullshit site for US casualties? or is that a pipe dream amidst this plague of censorship?
