Re: Civilian Body Count Astonishing
Ah I have to educate somone else :sigh: first most of the deaths are from an insurgent blowing up civilians with a car bomb. Yes I disagree with how the war was conducted we should have secured the boarders. To bad those 48,000 deaths are mostly comprised of insurgents. All you have to do is take away his gun and he's a civilian.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
