Question:
Juan Cole at Informed comment on January 28, 2004 posits that the Number of foreign troops and civilians US military has killed since 1968 approximates 2 million.
Let's look at the issue Harpers style:

US population: 295 million
Iraq population: 24 million
US per capita annual income: $37,600
Iraq per capita annual income: 700
US nuclear warheads: 10,455
Iraq nuclear warheads: 0
US tons of lethal chemical weapons (1997): 31,496
Iraq tons of lethal chemical weapons (1997): 0
Number of foreign troops and civilians US military has killed since 1968: approx. 2 million
Number of foreign troops and civilians Iraqi military has killed since 1968: approx. 250,000


Could it be possible to get a breakdown of said casualties, and are said casualties the result of direct US intervention or of that of proxies ?

PS. I am of the opinion that the US is probably the fifth bloodiest regime of the Twentieth century after China, the USSR, Germany and Japan.
