And they say its not like Viet Nam! (english)
14 Jun 2003

Viet Nam they relied on body counts to show we were winning, these usually didn't have any relation to reality, the body counts in Iraq seem to be following this same pattern.

"At the end of the battle, Fowler said seven bodies had been recovered, but the figure of 27 dead was "based on casualty reports from my men." Another officer who did not want to be named said the total dead did not exceed five.

Lt. Col. Greg Julian, a U.S. military spokesman in Kuwait, said figures on Iraqi dead are not supposed to be released at all.

"We're not going to make comparisons of various reports," he said."

Yeh right, sounds like light at the end of the tunnel to me!
