Allied Casualties To Date


--originally posted on Daily Kos--

But, who are our allies?  Only the Europeans?  No.  I would say the Iraqi's are our Allies as well.  Those police and military Iraqi's dying every day.  So, if you are going to report Allied Deaths, do it correctly.


BUSH: Let me answer what he just said, about around the world.


GIBSON: Well, I want to get into the issue of the back-door draft...


BUSH: You tell Tony Blair we're going alone. Tell Tony Blair we're going alone. Tell Silvio Berlusconi we're going alone. Tell Aleksander Kwasniewski of Poland we're going alone.


There are 30 countries there. It denigrates an alliance to say we're going alone, to discount their sacrifices. You cannot lead an alliance if you say, you know, you're going alone. And people listen. They're sacrificing with us.


So, President Bush loves our Alliance, I think we should stand with him and present our casualties as Alliance Casualties.


Senator John Warner, chairman of Senate Armed Services Committee - This mistreatment of prisoners represents an appalling and totally unacceptable breach of military regulations and conduct.  Most significant...these images...undermine the...substantial sacrifice by our forces and those of our allies in the war on terror.


Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld  - In the last three years, under the leadership of President Bush and the 85 or 90 countries in the coalition, probably the largest coalition in the history of mankind, we've changed strategies, assumptions, and our view of the world.


Condoleezza Rice Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs  -  America's service men and women, working with Iraqis and coalition forces, are helping to usher in these improvements. Our troops in Baghdad and other cities are operating under difficult conditions. Baathist dead-enders, Fedayeen fighters, and foreign terrorists continue to attack coalition forces, innocent Iraqis, and symbols of progress.




So, what are the Allied Casualties at this point?


Coalition Casualties in Iraq          2164


Coalition Casualties in Afghanistan    243


Iraqi Allied Casualties               3396


Allied Contractor Casualties           273


Total Allied Casualties               6076





Don't hate America, include all of our Allies in the body count.  Not just Americans and Europeans, but all of our Allies.
