500,000 peoples killed in Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan because of US ‘war on terror’: consider

WASHINGTON: About 500,000 people have died brutally in Pakistan, Iraq, and Afghanistan

because of the US “war on terror”, according to an examination released on Thursday.

 

The report by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs put the death

toll at between 480,000 and 507,000 people but said the actual number is likely higher.

 

The report says that between 182,272 and 204,575 civilians have been murdered in Iraq, 38,480

inAfghanistan, and 23,372 in Pakistan because of the US war on the dread that was launched

following the September 11 attacks in 2001.

 

The report says the tally does not include all people who have died indirectly because of war, including

through lost infrastructure or disease.

 

According to the report, Nearly 7,000 US troops have been murdered in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The new toll “is a more than 110,000 increase over the last count, issued just two years ago in August

2016,” Brown said in a statement.

 

“In spite of the fact that the war on dread is often overlooked by the American public, press and

lawmakers, the increased body count signals that, far from diminishing, this war remains intense.”

 

The death toll includes insurgents, local police and security forces, civilians and US and allied troops.

 

The author of the report, Neta Crawford, said many of those reported by US forces as militants may

actually have been civilians.

 

“We may never know the total direct death toll in these wars,” Crawford composed.

“For example, tens of thousands of civilians may have died in retaking Mosul and other cities from

ISIS but their bodies have likely not been recovered.”

 

The report says the tally does not include all people who have died indirectly because of war, including

through lost infrastructure or disease.
