MILITARY LOSSES FOR 20 YEARS

Military losses for 20 years

These are some rather eye-opening facts: Since the start of the war on
terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, the sacrifice has been enormous. In the
time period from the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 through now, we have
lost over 3000 military personnel to enemy action and accidents. As
tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is, consider the
following statistics:  The annual fatalities of military members while
actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2006:

1980 ………. 2,392
1981 ………  2,380
1984 ………. 1,999
1988 ………. 1,819
1989 ………. 1,636
1990 ………  1,508
1991 ………. 1,787
1992 ………. 1,293

—————————————————-

1993 ………. 1,213
1994 ………. 1,075
1995 ………..2,465
1996  ……… 2,318        Clinton years @13,417 deaths
1997 ……….    817
1998 ………  2,252
1999 ………. 1,984
————————————————-
2000 ………. 1,983
2001 ……….    890
2002 ………. 1,007        7 BUSH years @ 9,016 deaths
2003 ………. 1,410
2004 ………. 1,887
2005 ………     919
2006……..     920
————————————————————

If you are confused when you look at these figures…so was I.
Do these figures mean that the loss from the two latest
conflicts in the Middle East are LESS than the loss of military
personnel during Mr. Clinton ‘s  presidency; when America wasn’t even
involved in a war? And, I was even more confused; when I read that in
1980, during the reign of President (Nobel Peace Prize) Jimmy Carter,
there were 2,392 US military fatalities!
These figures indicate that many of our Media & Politicians will
pick and choose.  They present only those “facts” which support their
agenda-driven reporting. Why do so many of them march in lock-step to
twist the truth. Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for
their agenda?
Our Mainstream Print and TV media, and many Politicians like to
slant; that these brave men and women, who are losing their lives in
Iraq, are mostly minorities!  Wrong AGAIN— just one more media lie!

The latest census, of Americans, shows the following
distribution of American citizens, by Race:
European descent (White) ……. 69.12%
Hispanic ………………………….. 12.5%
Black……………………………… 12.3%
Asian ……………………………….. 3.7%
Native American ………………… . 1.0%
Other ………………………………..  2.6%

Now… here are the fatalities by Race; over the past three
years in Iraqi Freedom:
European descent (white) ….. 74.31%
Hispanic ……………………….. 10.74%
Black …………………………….. 9.67%
Asian …………………………… . 1.81%
Native American ……………….. 1.09%
Other ………………………………  . 33%
You do the Math! These figures don’t lie… but, Media-liars
figure…and they sway public opinion!  (These statistics are published
by Congressional Research Service, and they may be confirmed by anyone
at:

<http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf>  )

Now ask yourself these two questions:
“Why does the mainstream Print and TV Media never print
statistics like these?” and “Why do the mainstream media hate the web as
much as they do?”
