Total American KIA: Around 25000 KIA
Total Iraqi KIA: Disputed KIA Numbers


Since the Invasion of the U.S. and Britain into Iraq in March 20th 2003, the accumulative death toll has risen day by day. This is to be expected with war, that people die. That is nothing new to civilization. It can be said in fact, that life was by chance, and death is enevitable. The only thing that really changes, should it be looked at as changeing, is the cause we wage such actions for. In this case, oil is the mainstage. While polititions battle with words, and busness men play with money, soldiers are the puppets of their power. Whilst a man or woman of ither side fight as a profession, their skills are used with perspective to further the goals of momentary leaders and causes. This is why they die. They die for our realities to continue existing, so the stuff we don't need continues working. So the people we say we care about because it's a socially humane thing to think, continue liveing. This is why our men and woman, their men and woman both die in this war.
