US Military Deaths for past twenty years

The following information is very informative and something I had not  seen before.
The figures are found in a publication by the  Congressional Research Service and was prepared for Congress in 2007.
The figures are extremely interesting when compared to general  public opinions we many have.

MILITARY DEATHS FOR TWENTY YEARS

Bet you didn't know the following!  I surely was not fully aware of  all these facts.

Military losses for 20 years

These are some rather eye-opening facts: Since the start of the war on  terror in Iraq and Afghanistan , the sacrifice has been enormous. In  the time period from the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 through now,  we have lost over 3000 military personnel to enemy action and accidents.

As tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is,  consider the following statistics:  The annual fatalities of military members while actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2006:

1980 ......... 2,392
1981 ........  2,380
1984 ......... 1,999
1988 ......... 1,819
1989 ......... 1,636
1990 ........  1,508
1991 ......... 1,787        ..........................................
1992 ......... 1,293
1993 ......... 1,213
1994 ......... 1,075
1995 ..........2,465
1996  ........ 2,318        Clinton years @ 13,417 deaths
1997 .........    817
1998 ........  2,252
1999 ......... 1,984        ..........................................
2000 ..........1,983
2001 .........     890
2002 .......... 1,007        7 BUSH years @ 9,016 deaths
2003 .......... 1,410
2004 .........  1,887
2005 ........      919
2006..........     920

If you are confused when you look at these figures...so was I

Do these figures mean that the loss from the two latest conflicts in the Middle East are LESS than the loss of military personnel during Mr. Clinton's  presidency; when America wasn't even involved in a war?

And, I was even more impressed; when I read that in 1980, during the reign of President (Nobel Peace Prize) Jimmy Carter, there were 2,392 US military fatalities!

These figures indicate that many of our Media & Politicians pick and choose.  They present only those "facts" which support their agenda-driven reporting.

Why do so many of them march in lock-step to twist the truth.

Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for their agenda?

Our Mainstream Print and TV media, and many Politicians like to slant;  that these brave men and women, who are losing their lives in Iraq ,  are mostly minorities!  Wrong AGAIN --- just one more media lie!
The latest census, of Americans, shows the following distribution of American citizens, by Race:

----------------------------------------------------------
European descent (White) ....... 69.12%
Hispanic ............................. 12.5%
Black.................................. 12.3%
Asian ................................... 3.7%
Native American .................. 1.0%
Other ....................................  2.6%
----------------------------------------------------------
Now.. here are the fatalities by Race; over the past three years in  Iraqi Freedom:
----------------------------------------------------------
European descent (white) ..... 74.31%
Hispanic ........................... 10.74%
Black ................................. 9.67%
Asian .............................. 1.81%
Native American ................. 1.09%
Other ..................................  33%
----------------------------------------------------------

You do the Math! These figures don't lie... but, the liberal Media  chooses to ignore the facts...and they sway public opinion!  (These statistics are published by Congressional Research Service, and they may be confirmed by anyone at:
http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf

Now ask yourself these two questions:
"Why does the mainstream Print and TV Media never print statistics  like these?" and "Why do the mainstream media hate the web as much as they do?"
Because the mainstream media is controlled by Liberals who have an agenda that is not supported by publication of these facts.

Bottom Line?
Do your own research and do not be swayed by what you see on TV or read in most newspapers.
