The Human Cost of War

While the total casualties of the war in Iraq have been lower than many expected (the number of Coalition deaths, however, is already higher than my earlier prediction of >100), the effects of the war on the civilian population is still massive.

Likewise, I can't do anything but agree with Russell Brown when he states "But - through patriotism, fear or a mixture of both - many of them have kept coming. They have crowded into cars and buses and charged the US lines, AK47s pointlessly blazing, imminent precision death assured. They all have families. If you don't feel anything about that, you have no soul" on the deaths of Iraqi combatants.
