It’s been a few months since the invasion (or liberation, depending on how you see it) of Iraq. While the war isn’t officially over yet, have you ever wondered just how many people died in the September 11 attacks, which were no doubt a key influence (or excuse, depending on how you see it) for the most recent war?
These facts are taken off the US Department of State website:
|World Trade Center||2,823 presumed confirmed dead (*includes airline passengers)|
|Pentagon||125 (not including plane victims)|
|Flight 11*||92 passengers, WTC|
|Flight 175*||65 passengers, WTC|
|Flight 77||64 passengers, Pentagon|
|Flight 93||44 passengers, Pennsylvania|
That’s a total of 3,056 people, if my calculations are correct.
Now, according to Iraq Body Count’s database, over 6000 people have been killed so far in the subsequent war in Iraq.
Just think about it.
