Death in Iraq
The number of US troops killed in Iraq has reached 2,5OO, the US administration has announced. Each death is an agonising thing for families of dead soldiers, but will this be the magic number that further tips US public sympathy against Bush's war?
Tragically, we can barely know how many Iraqi civilians have been killed to date. ABC news has reported "Each month now [Baghdad's] morgue receives about the same number of gunshot deaths every month that it received during the whole of last year."
They don't know how many dead are brought to other morgues. How can we accurately know the toll this war is having on Iraqi civillians?
