9000 US Soldiers Dead!!
07 Jun 2005
The smoking gun that killed 9000 troops, now where is that downing street memo?
US Military Report: Bush’s Achilles’ Heel


The Bush Butcher’s Bill: Officially, 84 US Military Deaths in Iraq from 2 through 28 May, 2005 – Official Total of 1,747 US Dead to date (and rising)


U.S. Military Personnel who died in German hospitals or en route to German hospitals have not previously been counted. They total about 6,210 as of 1 January, 2005. The ongoing, underreporting of the dead in Iraq, is not accurate. The DoD is deliberately reducing the figures. A review of many foreign news sites show that actual deaths are far higher than the newly reduced ones. Iraqi civilian casualties are never reported but International Red Cross, Red Crescent and UN figures indicate that as of 1 January 2005, the numbers are just under 100,000.


Note: There is excellent reason to believe that the Department of Defense is deliberately not reporting a significant number of the dead in Iraq. We have received copies of manifests from the MATS that show far more bodies shipped into Dover AFP than are reported officially. The educated rumor is that the actual death toll is in excess of 7,000. Given the officially acknowledged number of over 15,000 seriously wounded, this elevated death toll is far more realistic than the current 1,400+ now being officially published. When our research is complete, and watertight, we will publish the results along with the sources. In addition to the evident falsification of the death rolls, at least 5,500 American military personnel have deserted, most in Ireland but more have escaped to Canada and other European countries, none of whom are inclined to cooperate with vengeful American authorities. (See TBR News of 18 February for full coverage on the mass desertions) This means that of the 158,000 U.S. military shipped to Iraq, 26,000 either deserted, were killed or seriously wounded. The DoD lists currently being very quietly circulated indicate almost 9,000 dead, over 16,000 seriously wounded and a large number of suicides, forced hospitalization for ongoing drug usage and sales, murder of Iraqi civilians and fellow soldiers , rapes, courts martial and so on – Brian Harring

Haven’t we had enough of this?

Clinton said he would but didn't when he made his statement he'd grab his gun and fight.
But it's ok to send other people's sons and daughters for Israel's wars of expansion.

No politician wants to loose the Jewish vote.

89% of American Jews live in the 12 states vital to elect a President and they would oppose any candidate who would stop all foreign aid to Israel. If we stopped giving Israel (10 to one what we give Palestine) Israel would be forced to make peace with Palestinians. They'd have to look to work on improving their tourist industry. Only peace in that region would improve it, Jesus Christ died for all including the Jews! They have the best Tourist real estate in the world, if only they would stop expanding into the Palestinian territories. Because thet have the policy to accept any Jews who want to return to Israel they have a space problem. They would have to build upward, in tall towers instead out outward. They have Nukes if any Arab country tries to attack them again. Oh yes the problem is the Third Temple. Some Talmudic Jews must have the land under the Dome of the Rock, and that's why Moslems are being Demonized and blamed for 911, Iraq, and its oil for Israel. Well let them contstruct their Temple for Animal Sacrifices over the Dome of the Rock and let our soldiers come home.

The military is already lowering its standards on who they'll take as volunteers. It's not going to be long before they'll reinstate a draft for all 18 year olds, both men and women, just like in Israel.
