Statistics.........who's the real victims
The empirically-estimated "PROBABILITY OF DEATH EACH YEAR" is:
1 in 3.3 million (0.00003%) (for Western civilians at the hands of jihadist terrorists);
1 in 3 million (US citizen being killed by a shark);
1 in 4 million (US citizen being electrocuted);
1 in 6 million (US citizen being struck by lightning);
1 in 500,000 (0.0002%) (US citizen at the hands of jihadists in the 21st century)
1 in 10,000) (0.01%) (from car accident in the US);
1 in 1,250 (0.08%) (under-5 year old infant in Australia FROM ALL CAUSES);
1 in 1,000 (0.1%) (from cigarette smoking-related causes in the US);
1 in 38 (2.6%) (under-5 year old infants in UK-US-occupied Iraq);
1 in 17 (5.8%) (for under-5 year old infants in occupied Afghanistan).
TERROR indeed for tens of millions of Iraqi and Afghan parents - but clearly TERRORISM, MASS MURDER, MASS INFANTICIDE and HORRENDOUS WAR CRIMES by the US-led Coalition in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories.
Who are being terrorized? Clearly the parents of Iraqi and Afghan infants are being terrorized. The probability of getting heads when you toss a coin is 1 in 2. The probability of death for each try in Russian roulette with a 6 shooter is 1 in 6. Would you cross the road without lights if the probability of death was 1/2, 1/6, 1/17 or 1/38? Wouldn't you be in immense fear for your loved ones if they had mortality odds such as this?
Who are the worst terrorists? PASSIVE GENOCIDE by the US in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories (through non-provision of life-sustaining requisites demanded by the Geneva Conventions) kills 0.4 MILLION under-5 year old infants EACH YEAR, this corresponding to 1,000 (ONE THOUSAND) avoidable under-5 infant deaths EACH DAY. The post-invasion avoidable mortality in the Iraqi and Afghan Territories now totals 1.9 million.(see the latest UNICEF report: http://www.unicef.org/ , Global Avoidable Mortality: http://globalavoidablemortality.blogspot.com/ and http://members.optusnet.com.au/~gpolya/links.html). In contrast, in the last 20 years the jihadists have murdered 5,000 Western victims (noting that the total Western population is about 760 million).
In harshly objective, "terror"-related terms of imposed "annual probability of death" for civilians, the US-led Coalition has outdone the jihadists and Arab insurgents by a factor of about 4/0.00003 = 133,000. However we can apply other measures to US state terrorism. Thus the " death ratio" of "total enemy deaths"/ "Allied military deaths" in World War 2 was 0.6 - however in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories the post-invasion ratio of "total enemy deaths" /"US military deaths" has been about 1,900,000/2,000 = 950 and the ratio of "enemy infant deaths"/"US military deaths" has been 1,500,000/2,000 = 750.
Let there be no equivocation - murdering and terrorizing innocent people is evil and vile. In reponse to the awful London bombings, the normally rather subdued Australian Leader of the Opposition, Mr Kim Beazley, vigorously stated of the perpetrators: "These terrorists are subhuman filth and must be captured and eliminated" (The Australian, 8 July 2005; see letters, The Age, Melbourne 11 July 2005). How then should we describe the Coalition perpetrators of mass infanticide in Iraq and Afghanistan? How should we describe the Orwellian mainstream media who are complicit in horrendous Anglo-American state terrorism?
Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent people must inform everyone. We must escape from the media-constructed Orwellian travesty, regain the English language and apply the numerical language of the cosmos - 2 plus 2 still equals 4.

Once again Bagerman has fallen prey to the conspiracy addicts, and anti US incitement masters.
Do the math. at a total Iraqi population of 26,000,000 and 20 percent under the age of 6 the figure of 1 in 38 would total 140,000 deaths per year (children only).
As we know the total Iraqi death total is 25000 since the beginning of the war. So The numbers posted by Bagerman are completely fictional propaganda intended to create a nonexistent sense of crisis.
Way to get duped again Bagerman...
