Independent’s War on Terror Count

The Independent published a number of statistics relating to the “War on Terror.” Among the numbers are some of the many estimates of civilian deaths and the financial cost of the invasions. The first paragraph of the article sums it up bluntly: “The ‘war on terror’ – and by terrorists – has directly killed a minimum of 62,006 people, created 4.5 million refugees and cost the US more than the sum needed to pay off the debts of every poor nation on earth.”

There are also a number of stories relating to individuals either killed or injured in the wars, which are very much worth reading.
