On adding up

Iraq Coalition Casualty Count offers something it calls fatality metrics, which allows you to instantly create a graph that, say, shows how many coalition forces, by age, have died so far (19.1% of fatalities being 20 or 21). Or you could graph fatalities by state (California leads, but PA’s #4, right after England—which I didn’t know was a state but, you know) or make a chart showing cause of death during the week of Christmas (16 by hostile fire), etc.

(CNN also has a comprehensive list of coalition casualties, including their pictures, hometowns, and details of their deaths, etc.)

And then of course there’s Iraq Body Count, where you can get a civilian count, which is far more daunting.

Hope this helps, Mr. Wolfowitz.
