More than 1,705 people were killed across Iraq during February, according to figures compiled by Antiwar.com.
This is an amazingly high number. Add to it the over 2,000 wounded and you have a crisis. A crisis created by the United States. The plan to “help” the situation coming out of Washington is to sell military drones to the Iraqi government. A government that barely has control over the country. These weapons will most likely be used to kill more citizens, help the Iranian backed Al Qaeda fighters, and eventually start popping up in Syria. Iraq is a complete warzone.
Let’s go all the way back…..to January:
“Antiwar.com recorded 1,284 dead and 2,088 wounded in January, with 556 of the fatalities belonging to militants alone.”
Included in the antiwar.com article are the “official” numbers from the US government, Agence France Presse, Iraq government and the UN.
