No highly reliable statistics are available publicly about Iraq's war casualties. Numerous organization have tried to quantify the toll but the results remain arguable. What cannot be argued however is that the cost in human terms is substantial. John Tirman examines the damages and calls on America to accept responsibility and facilitate repair.

Hundreds of thousands of casualties were suffered by Iraq. The USA expended treasure, lives and the nation's honor. Some war profiteers were enriched, many service families sacrificed lives and continue to suffer. The people who caused the tragedies, wheel off to enjoy comfortable retirements. The only cost to them is the inability to travel internationally without risk of arrest.
