Iraq War Logs In Numbers (2004-2009)

From Wikileaks.org web site:

"At 5pm EST Friday 22nd October 2010 WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history. The 391,832 reports ('The Iraq War Logs'), document the war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009 (except for the months of May 2004 and March 2009) as told by soldiers in the United States Army. Each is a 'SIGACT' or Significant Action in the war. They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout."

In this post I present this endless insane war in numbers (again). All numbers were taken from "Iraq War Logs" and manipulated using a MySQL database. It must be noted that "Iraq War Logs" was the largest classified military leak in history.

Total Number of Killed/Wounded

  • Total Killed: 109032
  • Total Wounded: 137558

In comparison with the "Afghan War Diary In Numbers" that I have posted, let's see some statistics information. According to the Wikipedia site the population of these two countries are:

  • Islamic Repubic of Afghanistan: 28,395,716
  • Republic of Iraq: 31,234,000

So let's compare the wounded/killed actions:

Afghan War (2004-2009):

  • Total Killed: 24155
  • Total Wounded: 26667

Iraq War (2004-2009):

  • Total Killed: 109032
  • Total Wounded: 137558

As we can see from the above numbers, the Iraq War was, more or less, 5 more times as lethal than Afghanistan War (equivalent population size).

If we count the days between the 1st January 2004 until the 31 December 2009, then the number of those days are 2191 (or 313 weeks). If we divide the civilians deaths (66081) with the period in days (2191), then we can see that American Troops and other forces average killed, more or less, ~30/31 Iraqi civilians per day!!!!

Finally, as we can see from the numbers, ~60.5% (66081 of 109032) of the deaths were civilians!!!!
