i am sorry geoff but i do not accept that statement at all. huge numerous of iraqi civilians were killed by american soldiers.please check wikipedia.as an example the town of faluja was flattened by overwhelming american fire .thousands of iraqi civilians were killed. the british medical journal the lancet wrote that the americans were directly responsible for over six hundred thousand iraqi deaths. i cannot judge the reliability of that number. i apologise but your contention that few iraqi civilians were killed is patently. ridiculous.
