With the news of the deaths two more British soldiers earlier last week and another on Sunday, people may start asking again about the true cost of the Iraq war. In a previous post we have highlighted evidence of the high levels of casualties inflicted on the Iraqi people. However, the cost to the people serving in the British military should also be remembered. A posting on LFCM draws attention to the fact that British military casualties in Iraq are now in the region of one thousand. A milestone that deserves attention.
Update 01.03.06: Fresh evidence of the UK governments attempts to underplay the true extent of British casualties is featured in this new posting.
