Iraq War Logs Every Death Mapped – From Wikileaks and Guardian MIRROR

Mirror from this channel: The Wikileaks Iraq war logs provide us with a unique picture of every death in Iraq. The events are mapped using Google Fusion tables At 5pm EST Friday 22nd October 2010 WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history. The 391832 reports (The Iraq War Logs), document the war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009 (except for the months of May 2004 and March 2009) as told by soldiers in the United States Army. Each is a SIGACT or Significant Action in the war. They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout. The reports detail 109032 deaths in Iraq, comprised of 66081 civilians; 23984 enemy (those labeled as insurgents); 15196 host nation (Iraqi government forces) and 3771 friendly (coalition forces). The majority of the deaths (66000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths.That is 31 civilians dying every day during the six year period. For comparison, the Afghan War Diaries, previously released by WikiLeaks, covering the same period, detail the deaths of some 20000 people. Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivalent population size.
