3772 days into the Afghanistan War. TEN YEARS NOW. HOW MUCH LONGER?
3231 days into the Iraq War. EIGHT YEARS NOW. HOW MUCH LONGER?*

(* It is the position of this thread that so long as the civil strife begun by this war continues, and 15,000 US personnel, many of them armed mercenaries, remain in Iraq, and the US is spending thousands of dollar an hour to support that force, the war is not over.)

AFGHANISTANI CIVILIAN DEATHS (THROUGH THE END OF 2011):

COST OF THE WARS SO FAR (ROUNDED TO THE NEAREST MILLION):

AFGHANISTAN: $498,498,000,000
IRAQ: $800,823,000,000
TOTAL: $1,299,321,000,000

Please note that the above figures, from the IBC website, are NOT estimates of total Iraqi civilians killed as a result of the US invasion and its aftermath. Rather, they are a count of Western-reported verifiable violent deaths, and likely to be a small percentage of the true figure. Les Roberts, author of the Lancet Report, believes the actual number may now be as high as 300,000. (Thanks to Raztafarian for the above information.)

Study Claims Iraq's 'Excess' Death Toll Has Reached 655,000

By David Brown

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

A team of American and Iraqi epidemiologists estimates that 655,000 more people have died in Iraq since coalition forces arrived in March 2003 than would have died if the invasion had not occurred.

The estimate, produced by interviewing residents during a random sampling of households throughout the country, is far higher than ones produced by other groups, including Iraq's government.

It is more than 20 times the estimate of 30,000 civilian deaths that President Bush gave in a speech in December. It is more than 10 times the estimate of roughly 50,000 civilian deaths made by the British-based Iraq Body Count research group. (Thanx again to Raztafarian)[/b]
