    Latest UN data reveal UK-US war on Muslim women and children

    Latest UN data reveal UK-US war on Muslim women and children

    A fundamental norm of decent human societies is respect for women and children. Among the very worst things that could be done to a woman is to kill her child. Indeed one of the worst things that can happen to anyone is to lose a child. I know. Most of the 21st century has seen the US-led "War on Terror", ostensibly conducted in response to the murder of a total of about 5,000 Western civilians over the last 20 years by jihadists and Palestinians. The "War on Terror" has so far seen a huge global expansion of US power and an extra financial benefit of about US$500 billion to the US military-industrial complex since 9/11.

    What has been the human cost of the "War on Terror"?

    ... From the latest UN population division data (2005) it can be calculated that the post-invasion avoidable mortality and under-5 infant mortality have been about 370,000 and 260,000, respectively, in Iraq and 1.5 million and 1.2 million, respectively, in Afghanistan.

    Other estimates of under-5 infant mortality in Occupied Iraq and Afghanistan come from the latest UNICEF Report (2005) (visit: which states that in 2003 the under-5 infant mortality was 110,000 in Iraq and 292,000 in Afghanistan as compared to about 1,000 in the invading and occupying country Australia (noting that these countries have populations of about 25, 24 and 20 million, respectively).

    Web-accessible WHO (2005) and medical literature data indicate that the annual per capita medical expenditure in Occupied Iraq and Afghanistan in 2004 was US$37 and about US$10, respectively, as compared to US$7,000 in the US and US$3,100 in Australia. The Ruler is responsible for the Ruled and thus the horrendous post-invasion avoidable mortality in Occupied Iraq and Afghanistan constitutes passive genocide. The number of US-led Coalition military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan has been about 2,000 (visit: as compared to the post-invasion under-5 year old infant deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories that total 1.5 million. Thus 750 Muslim infants have died in the post-invasion Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories for every Coalition military death - as compared to a ratio of 0.3 Jewish children killed during World War 2 for every Axis military death.

    Of course there is a bigger picture of horrendous suffering for the women, children and men who are the victims of the State Terrorism of Anglo-American democratic imperialism (democratic Nazism).

    Thus according to the latest UN Population Division data the avoidable mortality (excess mortality) in Iraq in 15 years of Anglo-American-imposed war, sanctions and suffering since the start of the Gulf War in 1991 by Bush I has been 1.7 million - and the under-5 infant mortality has totalled 1.2 million.
