Nearly 25,000 civilians have died violently in Iraq since the US-led invasion in March 2003, a report says.
Perhaps the report is a gross underestimation of the casualties in Iraq, but here is the proportional statistics of the figures any way:
The Dossier on Civilian Casualties in Iraq 2003-2005 says 37% of all non-combatant deaths were caused by the US-led coalition.
Most of these occurred during the invasion phase, which it counts as ending on 1 May 2003. But killings by anti-occupation and criminal elements also increased steadily over the entire two-year period.
Insurgents are said to have caused 9% of the deaths, while post-invasion criminal violence was responsible for another 36%.
Congratulations Bu$hCo! You are still in the lead
