Body Counts

How many Iraqi citizens have died in this war? I would say 30,000, more or less, have died as a result of the initial incursion and the ongoing violence against Iraqis.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68) 2005-12-14.
I don’t have a clue and I don’t plan to undertake any real effort to find out.
~ General Colin Powell (born: 1937-04-05 age: 77), when asked about the number of deaths the Iraqi military suffered.

Sources for Iraq war body counts. Keep in mind counts will be low for three reasons:

  1. In the chaos of war, reporting casualties is a low priority.
  2. Iraqis do not want casualty reports to demoralise their troops.
  3. Bush does not want casualty reports to anger the anti-war movement.
