What happened Dick? If it was a quagmire in 1994, what changed it over the next decade? Could this possibly have something to do with the oil and privatization of the rebuilding effort and the income and personal favors you stood to gain? It does appear that there were some folks in the CIA that indicated there was no threat to American security from Iraq. Well, it is good that we have this video that clearly explains what we are seeing now. It also appears to contain more truth than we are hearing now.
Here are some American Military Casualty Statistics from Iraq that can make one pause:
- 3886 deaths since the Iraq War begun in March 19, 2003 (1, 2)
- 3747 deaths since “Mission Accomplished” May 1, 2003
- 2423 deaths since the capture of Saddam Hussein December 13, 2003
Coalition deaths, in total, amount to 4192 souls (3)
CNN has posted a list of all US and Coalition Casualties as a result of the Iraq War.
