Wikileaks>Iraq>Numbers

The war logs released by Wikileaks are slowly showing how insane the Iraq situation is. It is difficult to discuss the topic so let’s take a look at the numbers.

According to the logs there were 32,563 cases of civilian murder in Iraq between 2004 – 2009

10.871 were shot

435 were beheaded

164 were kids

Between 2004 and 2008, 180.000 iraqi were arrested. 1/50 of the adult male population.

In at least 1300 cases there are also references to torture, including that of 32 children.

Wikileaks previously released the ‘Afghan War Diaries’. But Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivallent population size.

The violence detailed in the documents is horrific. It includes skin peeled from bodies, acid burns, attacks with electric drills, electrocution, branding, fingers and limbs torn off, eyes pulled out, ears, noses and parts of the face sliced off.
