U.S. military deaths surpass 9-11 toll

Its official, apparently the government WOULD send 3000 Americans to their deaths for a lie:


At least 36 Iraqis died Tuesday in bombings, officials said, including a co-ordinated strike that killed 25 in western Baghdad. Separately, the deaths of six U.S. soldiers pushed the American toll beyond the number of victims in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The three co-ordinated car bombs in western Baghdad injured at least 55 people, a doctor at Yarmouk hospital, where the victims were taken, said on condition of anonymity because of safety concerns. The attacks occurred in a mixed Sunni and Shiite neighbourhood.

In separate attacks, a bomb exploded in a central Baghdad market, killing four people and wounding 15 others, police said. Two roadside bombs targeted an Iraqi police patrol in an eastern neighbourhood of the capital, killing four policemen and injuring 12 people.

In Kirkuk, 290 kilometres north of the Iraqi capital, another roadside bomb killed three civilians - including an 8-year-old girl - and wounded six other people, police said.

The U.S. military on Tuesday announced the deaths of six more American soldiers, pushing the U.S. military death toll since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003 to at least 2,978 - five more than the number killed in the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

The milestone came with the deaths of the three soldiers Monday and three more Tuesday in roadside bomb attacks near Baghdad, the military said.

U.S. President George W. Bush has said that the Iraq war is part of the United States' post-Sept. 11 approach to threats abroad. Going on offence against enemies before they could harm Americans meant removing the Taliban from power in Afghanistan, pursuing members of al-Qaida and seeking regime change in Iraq, Bush has said.

Democratic leaders have said the Bush administration has gotten the United States bogged down in Iraq when there was no evidence of links to the Sept. 11 attacks, detracting from efforts against al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.

The AP count of those killed includes at least seven military civilians. Prior to the deaths announced Tuesday, the AP count was 15 higher than the Defence Department's tally, last updated Friday. At least 2,377 died as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.

British soldiers were on alert for reprisals a day after they raided a police station in the southern city of Basra, killing seven gunmen in an effort to stop renegade Iraqi officers from executing their prisoners.

"We fully expect more attacks on our bases and on Basra stations, but that's nothing out of the ordinary," Maj. Charlie Burbridge, a military spokesman, said Tuesday. "But this is part of a long-term rehabilitation of the Iraqi police service, to make it more effective and more accountable, and ultimately provide better security for the people of Basra."

After the British stormed the police station, they removed 127 prisoners, who showed evidence of torture, then evacuated the building before blowing it up, he said.

Burbridge had previously said only 76 prisoners were in the station, but later said soldiers miscounted the prisoners because the operation was done under cover of darkness.

Some 800 of the British military's 7,200 troops in Iraq were involved in the operation, he said.

A spokesman for Iraq's defence minister said Monday that the Iraqi interior and defence ministries approved the Basra operation, but some members of the Basra provincial council said they were not notified.

"We object to the way the operation was conducted... There was no need to bring in such a huge number of forces and break down the station," council member Hakim al-Maiyahi told The Associated Press.

Burbridge acknowledged the council members' concerns, but said British officials had alerted the provincial governor, Mohammed al-Waili, who approved the operation.

"He told us it was the right thing - the way forward. He supported our activity," Burbridge said.

Al-Waili refused to comment on the matter.

FBI Chided for Oklahoma Bomb Investigation

WASHINGTON (Dec. 25) - A two-year congressional inquiry into the Oklahoma City bombing concludes that the FBI didn't fully investigate whether other suspects may have helped Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols with the deadly 1995 attack, allowing questions to linger a decade later.

Some good stuff in that video, too bad they had to include that

cartoon planes @ the WTC shit before the 7-minute mark. I expected as much from you, Reconwith.

The general public a having a difficult time believing that our gov't would commit such heinous atrocities against our own people, so let’s make it even harder for them to believe by telling them it was “cartoon planes,” right asshole? (You think it wasn’t within the NeoCons power to either remote-control the commercial flights into the towers, or merely have drones slam into them? Why the f*ck would they risk using cartoon planes instead? What’s was to be gained by them in risking such a bizarre, unproven stunt???)

Toot Sweet

Methinks Ye Doth Protest Too Much, Madam!


And Reconwith, why didn't they also use a cartoon Boeing @ the

Pentagon then? Wouldn't that have staunched most of the raging controversy over AA-77 hitting there, in your opinion?

Furthermore, why is the cartoon always said to be the 2nd plane that hit the towers--the one seen & photographed by thousands of eyewitnesses??? Doesn't that sound like particularly stupid disinfo to you?

Looks like the disinfo

Looks like the disinfo clowns have made their own video! A psyop video posing as an expose of psyops! delicious irony gents, and I for one appreciate it!

P.S. No one's falling for it Amanda/Nico/Killtown/Reynold//Wood. Your cover's blown. Go find a new job.

Looks like they're coming out of the woodwork now!


The work of Amanda/Nico/Killtown/Reynold//Wood is based on science, and has not been refuted. (Not even by government plant Steven Jones.)

Anyone who thinks otherwise is a disinfo dunce clown.


You idiots better wakeup already 

Wow, "chided" and over 11 years later?!



"U.S. President George W. Bush has said that the Iraq war is part of the United States' post-Sept. 11 approach to threats abroad."
25th Amendment:
Step 1. Remove Bush as non compos mentis.
Step 2. Cheney becomes President.
Step 3. Immediately impeach Cheney.

It's a slam dunk.

the Democrats are complicit

the Democrats are complicit cowards who are afraid that taking those steps would look like a coup and thus would cost them dearly in 2008. at least i think thats how the coward thinking in the DLC goes nowadays.

My scenario

Seriously, I don’t think it’s that far-fetched… Bush could easily unravel in the next few weeks. He’s been showing signs of cracking at the last couple of press conferences. One good question from a respected reporter could do some serious damage. (Remember Nixon and Dan Rather in '74?)

Bush could start babbling incoherently or laugh inappropriately (wait a minute... he does that already), or break down in tears, and that’s it. He's out. Cheney takes over, with zero popularity. Democrats taste blood, go in for the kill. By then majority of the country would support them.

Hey, it could happen.

Take your pick: Democans or Republicrats

Which form of arsenic do you prefer? So choose your poison; will it be a fast or slow pace to a military state?

Just keep Washington busy in-fighting. I'm of the view that we are in delay mode at this point.

You Act as If They aren't the Same

There is no such thing as "Democrat" and "Republican" at the top-tier. Those are just names for the plebeians to eat up. There is the government, and the government has its agents firmly in place on both sides. The ideologies promoted by both parties are those which promote the government. Both parties are paries of the government. Period.

Only the scum are allowed to rise to the top. Any actual person of the people who manages, in effect by accident, to get a foot in the door (i.e., by way of elite family, i.e., by birth) gets a bullet in his head (or something equivalent), like John F. Kennedy, when he started to catch on to the the CIA and banking ruling-elite scams, thus resulting in his issuing of silver-backed U.S. Treasury Notes (i.e., Constitutional money that is actually backed by real goods, such as gold or silver), as opposed to Federal Reserve Notes (i.e., fiat paper money backed by nothing, and which puts the masses deeper in dept due to its fractional-reserve nature).

Those Kennedy-issued silver-backed $5 U.S. Treasury Notes are collecters' items nowadays, so take care of them if you have any.

LOL! Rinse, wash and repeat!

I wonder how many neo-con-men/women we'd go through till it stopped?

Casualties are even higher..

The Military only counts servicemen who have died while still in the country of Iraq, not the ones who have died after being wounded and brought to hospitals outside the country.. also it doesn't count the coming deaths from the use of DU.. so the number is actually much higher..

I'm sure the Afghani & Iraqi death statistics are being

manipulated downward in many underhanded ways, not to mention all the maimed, mutilated, & suffering. It's just a horrible, disgusting situation. I can't believe that the evil Chimp & his cabal are literally getting away with mass murder!

More of the Same In 2007

December 25, 2006

Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. In Iraq, however, war rages on with no end in sight.

The midterm congressional elections are over, and the Iraq Study Group report is complete. Many Americans are unhappy about the war and want a change in policy. But what we are going to get from both parties in Washington is more of the same-- much more-- when it comes to Iraq.

President Bush not only wants to stay the course, he wants to increase the number of troops in Iraq. The “new approach” is simply escalation, with no timetable and still no definition of victory.

In fact, the president promised last week that, “They can’t run us out of the Middle East,” and that we will not retreat from Iraq. Worse, he asserted that America will, “Stay in the fight for a long period of time.” According to the President, we must increase the size of our Army and Marine Corps to provide the bodies to make this possible.

In other words, our troops will stay in Iraq indefinitely. Remember, we are building several huge, permanent military bases there, along with the biggest embassy in the world to serve as the command post for our occupation. The embassy compound alone will cost more than one billion dollars.

This doesn’t sound like the “new generation” warfare envisioned by former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, but more like old-fashioned occupation-- which requires hundreds of thousands of soldiers on the ground in Iraq. Once again, more of the same.

The Pentagon, not surprisingly, has requested an additional $100 billion to keep the war going. This money will not be included in the annual budget or deficit numbers, but will be whitewashed as an “off-budget” expenditure.

If all this were not enough, the president has ordered aircraft carrier groups to position themselves in the Persian Gulf in a new show of bellicosity toward Iran.

Anyone who voted for Democrats last month expecting a change in our Iraq policy was sorely mistaken. Incoming congressional leaders have publicly stated their support for increasing troop levels, and Democrats have no intention of pursuing any serious withdrawal plan in Congress. They will not withhold war funding. The war will plod on, and Democrats will call for more of the same.

In Washington, the answer to every problem is always more of the same. If a war is not successful, escalate it-- or even start another one. This is our only policy in Iraq, where we don’t even know whom the enemy really is. Can one in ten Americans even distinguish between Sunni, Shia, and Kurds? Unless we rethink our senseless policy of endless occupation, regime change, and nation building in the Middle East, we must expect more of the same: More troops injured or killed, more spending, more debt, more taxes, more militarism, and especially more government.

Merry Christmas to all, and please share my wishes for peace on earth and goodwill toward men in 2007.


Military build up in Iran's waters.

Has anyone noticed that, while all this talk of a surge in troops is happenning, so is the navel buildup in Iran's waters? It seems rather coincidental, doesn't it?


Point of fact - any build up is happing in international waters. That's a clear threat though and I'll not be surprised to see a false flag attack on a battle group lead to 'retaliatory' measures. Roll the Gulf of Token clips.

I could swear this story

I could swear this story came out some months ago, thinking late Summer... whatever the case, we have Saddam's planned execution now to take our short attention spans off this latest release of this story.

How true that the real numbers of US servicemen dead is at least triple the official 3000 tally. If they drop dead anywhere but "on the ground in Iraq", they're wounded, and not counted when they later die. "Well, everyone dies sometime, right???"

And never you mind the >600,000 dead Iraqi civilians since the invasion began.

Are the suicides included?

Sadly, I understand that's a HUGE problem that's being covered up.

And don't forget...

Those who die from injuries suffered in Iraq and are airlifted to other locations where they unfortunately pass away. Or the many diseases that these men and women contract while in Iraq, only to surface upon their return home?



Can anyone deny the fact that the government is denying the true casualty counts from these wars?

no doubt about it, on both

no doubt about it, on both sides. half a million Iraqis have died. thats actually a conservative number.

human life is so

human life is so meaningless...kill anotherone. Genocide is like koolaid just mix it up in a big piture. Ain't it wonderful to have so much power! Shock and Awe! Awesome! We are the Elite , and we have no shame because we are better than you!

A baseball bat to the head of a beautiful mind...shock and AHHH!

On this side we have the United States of America, Great Britain, and the greatest nuclear arsenal in history.

On that side we have USSR, China, and the majority of people of this globe.

The Russian oil, gold bourse has started. The Iranian oil bourse is surrounded by nukes.

We as American Workers must

realise that our time as the best country in the world is threatened. We must work harder than the other countries that try to be like us.

Wanted: List of "experts" against official story

Wanted: List of "experts" against official story

I am looking for a good web page that lists or discusses many "experts" or prominent people who are disputing the official story of 9/11. Can anyone direct me to a good recommended link?

Take a look at the photo Michael Moore...


Take a look at the photo Michael Moore put on his homepage
to go with the story of the number of US dead in the Iraqi Invasion.
Is he telling us something? Is he about to come clean with the TRUTH?

Still annoyed

because that pudge clown has the audacity to suggest the dubious nature of 9/11 in his Fahrenheit film with his reference to the Saudi family being flown out, but he backs out when Alex Jones sticks a mic in his face. Either he knows it but is too afraid to admit it, or he doesn't buy into it because he knows it would bring down the democrats as well.

People should write to him and send him links to 9/11 truth sites. Has anyone done that?

Understand your frustration

Understand your frustration with Moore, but I'm still-nominally -a fan. If it wasn't for him and Fahrenheit 911 most people wouldn't know Bush sat on his arse looking like a stunned moose while the attacks continued.

Mind, once people did know, some started making excuses: "Well, anyone would be shocked!"

Agree though about rattling his cage--and do it through his concern for the troops: point out that until we take back 911 from Bush &Co, nothing else will change.

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

Has anyone done that?

Yes, every great article or link to the best video I send to him as well as many other sites. I have been sending Michael Moore stuff for two years. He's never blocked me or responded.

This photo is one of thousands he could have chosen. It is also one of the very best to raise serious questions.

These are most of the places I send things to. I do not send everything to everyone, everytime. Send them a message!

I'm sure Moore knows, he just doesn't want to follow

Hunter S. Thompson into the grave.

I think he knew when he made Fahrenheit 9/11, if he didn't he certainly knows now.

Don't wait for a "star" to break this story in the MSM, just keep plugging away and we'll get there sooner than you think. We have to lead, when there are enough of us, some "names" will come out of hiding and join the parade, but it is up to us.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Be well.

Don't forget the 2nd degree murder deaths.

How do you count deaths directly due to the air the rescuers were subject to breathing without adequate protection due to Washington's rush to destroy evidence? Ultimately, this will likely add thousands to the collapse total.
