12/4/20 Chris Woods on the Real Civilian Death Toll in Iraq

12/4/20 Chris Woods on the Real Civilian Death Toll in Iraq

Scott talks to Chris Woods from Airwars about some of the difficulties in assessing civilian casualties from U.S. bombs in Iraq. Woods estimates very conservatively that between eight and thirteen thousand civilians have been killed during the war in Iraq, but coalition governments only admit to about 1,400. When factoring in excess deaths from the secondary consequences of war, some have estimated that civilian deaths could be as high as one million. Sadly this is not an issue that receives attention in most circles—the war in Iraq is too far away, and for the most part people in the west simply don’t notice its consequences. Woods’ organization works hard to change that perception.
