MILITARY DEATHS FOR TWENTY YEARS

Bet you didn't know the following! I surely was not fully aware of all these facts.

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:< BR>
>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 impressed; 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 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?

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! 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, the Media chooses to ignore the facts...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 < http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf... ; >
< http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf... ; 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?" Because the mainstream media is controlled by Liberals who have an agenda that is not supported by publication of these facts.

Bottom Line? Do your own research and do not be swayed by what you see on TV or read in most newspapers.

Then, regardless of your party, go to the polls and cast your own vote!

The following is a flat out lie. Just read the linked CRS report and find out for yourself. Interestingly, the post title is "Get the Facts". I suggest you do.
