Topic: The Real Iraq Casualty Count

believe it or not...
Can anyone believe how dirty and dishonorable the US administration is?

The official number of US soldiers wounded in Iraq that was announced by the US DOD (department of defense) is 8458 in Iraq ( http://icasualties.org/oif/ ) and 423 in Afghanistan ( http://www.unknownnews.net/casualties.html#methodology ).

Can anyone believe that the US military hospital at Germany (alone), the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, announced that 20,802 troops have been treated at Landstuhl from injuries received in "Operations Iraqi Freedom" (occupying Iraq) and "Enduring Freedom" (occupying Afghanistan).

The interesting part of the news that I didn't find these numbers on AlJazeera (the No.1 enemy of Rumy and other little bush supporters). These Numbers were published by the well-known, Department of Defense-authorized daily newspaper distributed overseas for the U.S. military community, "Stars and Stripes": http://www.stripes.com/about/aboutstripes.html

More than 17,200 from these soldiers were injured in Iraq, and more than 3,000 were injured in Afghanistan as I read in a local newspaper: http://www.assabeel.net/

These numbers are just for the US soldiers that were moved to Germany. There are other thousands that were injured inside Iraq and Afghanistan and treated in small local military clinics and hospitals, or moved to other US military hospitals.

The official number of Us soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan is 1375 and 144. I wonder what the real numbers are.

The small bush administration is re-identifying the meaning of "lies".
