June: Deadliest Month in Baghdad

July 5, 2006 at 2:11 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

According to this report June has been to this point the deadliest month in Baghdad, with the morgues reporting nearly 1600 bodies for the month, most of them shot in the head. Many are trying to compare the post-war Iraq situation to that of Japan and Germany in post-WWII. I’m working on a larger post showing the differences, but plainly put, in Japan, we had nearly half a million soldiers on the ground, and in Germany 370,000. How many are in Iraq? 140,000. Not only that, but you are dealing in Iraq with people who are not tired of war yet, who are not soundly defeated. Japan and Germany were both tired of war, so they took their reconstruction medicine with comparative ease.
