false statement
Civilian casualties and injuries are minimal during U.S. military actions.
by Last updated 2004-08-29

Precision warfare is a misnomer.

Here are estimates of casualties

  • Coalition Casualties
  • the civilian body count in Iraq
  • Apr 12, 2003 counts of civilian and non-civilian deaths and humanitarian costs
  • Wagner College War casualties
  • CNN's U.S. Coalition Casualties with Pictures
  • Civilian Victims of U.S. Bombing of Afghanistan, U of New Hampshire
  • ABC News reports an American woman travels door to door counting civilian Iraqi casualties.
  • Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC).
  • The Silent Genocide in Afghanistan
  • An unconfirmed estimate suggests the total number of Depleted Uranium (DU) used in the 2003 Iraq war was about 1,500 tons, five times more than was used in the 1991 Gulf war. DU, left over after natural uranium has been enriched, is 1.7 times denser than lead. When a weapon with a DU tip or core strikes a solid object, it goes straight through before erupting in a burning cloud of vapor. This settles as chemically poisonous and radioactive dust. The dust can be dangerous and lead to irradiation if inhaled, though contact is much more likely to lead to chemical poisoning. BBC News (Search for "DU")
