“U.S. compliance with noncombatant immunity in Iraq is relatively high by historical standards…”
Writing the latest edition of Foreign Affairs Colin Kahl examined deaths in Iraq from American Forces, indigenous forces and terrorists and has concluded that U.S. forces show great restraint and take care to follow the laws of war.
Kahl has determined that U.S. forces are responsible for 3,582 civilian deaths since the end of major combat operations.
The terrorists, criminals and various sectarian wanabe warlords are responsible for killing 32,603 civillians.
Kahl points out an inconvinient truth for the left–that the real terrorists are, uh, terrorists.
