* AMERICAN PROPAGANDA! - Like something China would do! *
Didn't we ridicule the Soviet Union when they did the same thing
while fighting in Afghanistan? Remember how the USA funded
the military build-up of Afghanistan so they could fight
against the Soviets? Came back to bite us on Sept. 11th 2001.
900 Billion Dollars spent in War in Iraq for nothing! Humans could have colonized another Planet for what
has been spent on the War on Terrorism and the costs of 9/11!!! ** Maybe this is the Planet of the Apes.... may as well be! **
The success of American "Casualty-Management" techniques and propaganda have reduced the 'official' US casualty
rate in Iraq from about 3,000 dead to about 900 dead. Approximately 889
American military personel have been killed in Iraq since the U.S. invaded
that country one year ago. This casualty count is interpreted by the American
government and by the majority of the world's media as being unacceptably
high, and a major media-management campaign has been implemented by the
Americans to diminish its impact. Photographs of caskets and dead soldiers
are banned, President Bush refuses to attend military funerals, and the
release the bare minimum of information about casualties.
These casualty figures are, however, artificially low. They are held low
by a combination of factors, many of which are intentionally intended to
minimize the effect of American casualties in public opinion in the U.S.
These factors are outlined below:
THE PROPORTION OF WOUNDED WHO DIE HAS BEEN REDUCED!
Improvements in body armour, field medical care and evacuation have
collectively reduced the proportion of injured soldiers who are killed to about
1 in 6, which is much lower than the 1 in 3 ratio experienced in all previous
American wars, including the first gulf war. This allows many extremely maimed
people to be excluded from the casualty figures. Had the wounded-to-dead ratio
remained at the historical level, the US would have experienced about 1,600 to
2,000 dead by this point. An inadvertent leak by a mid-level American military
official in March revealed that there were 18,000 medical evacuations from Iraq
at that point, illustrating the extent of injuries. Those numbers, and the
'official' number of wounded (about 4000) are undoubtedly far higher following
MANY OF THE DEAD ARE CONTRACTORS! Haliburton/KBR - a
major military contractor working for US forces in Iraq, has lost about 40 of
its people to deadly violence in Iraq. Titan Corp., another contractor, has lost
about 20. Many dozens of other companies, including many non-US and non-western
companies, have also lost personnel. There are no 'official' numbers available
of contractors killed in Iraq, however it likely exceeds 200 and might even be
has high as 400. These are casualties among those who perform military roles and
which therefore should be counted as US military dead. They are, in fact,
MANY OF THE DEAD ARE FOREIGN TROOPS! The relatively tiny non-US
portion of the so-called 'coalition' have been losing troops at a faster rate
than the US military. About 107 of the 22,000 non-US coalition troops in Iraq
have died, a proportion that is slightly higher than for US troops. But the
deaths of Salvadorian or Ukrainian or even British troops rarely generate media
interest in the US, and have almost no impact on US public opinion.
MANY OF THE DEAD ARE IRAQI! The US has rapidly handed over the most dangerous and
challenging military roles to teams of under-trained, under-equipped Iraqi
'troops', who are attracted by salaries and by a genuine desire to help their
homeland. A recent photograph in the New York times showed a joint US-Iraqi
patrol, in which patrol dogs used by the Americans wore body armour while the
Iraq forces wore none. This use of Iraqis approaches the 'human shield' policies
of the Baathist regime and is used to minimize American casualties. You can
imagine how much the American public cares about Iraqi dead. As many as 1200
Iraqis have died performing US military missions in Iraq.
American Casualty Management has therefore successfully reduced the 'official' number of American casualties
from as many as 3,000 to about 750. This campaign, combined with an extensive
ongoing media campaign against effectively reporting even the 'official'
casualties', has been partially responsible for Americans disinterest in
the truth about the reasons for the Iraq war, about the low level of support
for the Americans within Iraq and internationally and about the lack of
any realistic US plan for withdrawal. When US public opinion finally wakes
up then the US will withdraw from Iraq. Unfortunately, American propaganda
about casualties will delay that withdrawal, and will therefore contribute
to the number of Americans and Iraqis who will die in the coming year!!
I've become accustomed to the fact that the American Government lies
about virtually everything! It doesn't mean I have to like it! In fact I've been sick of it since I was a kid!!!!!
One man can only do so much when most people don't really care anyways!!
Typical Americans are tied up with their busy lives of Soccer Mom duties
and shopping at Wal-Mart for the latest Chinese Imports!
That's after they get off work from their Burger King Job, since
they didn't care years ago they sent their good jobs to
India & Mexico where they pay $1 an hour with 0 benefits!!!
The same Rich White Elite sold out their own people in favor of
using Black Africans as Free Labor for over 300 Years in America!
They did not want to have to pay White people to do the work!!
Their Descendants continue the tradition!!
Now Blacks are unemployed while they let in Millions of Mexicans
to do the same jobs for 1/3 the money and not complain!
White's would not work for Free for the Slave Masters
so the Rich White Azz's went to Africa for Free Labor!
It was a huge business in America for over 300 Years!
Native Egyptians used Blacks as Free Labor Also!
They are now extinct: EXTINCTION!
Now they just send your job to a Third World Country
where they work very cheap or use Free SweatShop Labor!
Then they ship the products back here to sell to you
with a huge azz price mark-up!!!
You can't even get most American's motivated to VOTE!
So why put up a page like this one you may say!? Because some people actually do care and I Hate Censorship!!!
