Coalition servicemen killed in the war against Iraq:

Total announced as of 2nd of November: 433 (377 US, 51 UK, 1 Denmark,
3 Spain, 1 Ukraine)


....which is about ten percent of the Russian deaths in Chechnya for 2002.

Thank heavens the US only had to go up against an army with mostly
Russian equipment to fight with.

Don't know how about others but this "Thank heavens..." sounds a bit
stuipid to me. Yes, 10% of TOTAL russian losses so far! As for
200, russian losses for 2002 in chechenya were very close to those
433 and not to 4330 as many here would prefer to believe. In 2002
we were lossing 1 man per day on average. Since than it went down.
At least during last couple weeks particularlly after new chechen
president elections I have not seen any info on new russian military
deaths in Chechenya. Although there were reports of several chechen
policemen wounded and some (around 10 I think) chechen bandits killed.
That's all. Basaev seems left since it is already a month as his
voice is not heard by radio. I guess he is practicing at US helicopters
in Iraq.

Not "total."

You're still going off of the old "official" numbers, not the
recently-revised ones that show more deaths in one year than they used
to admit for the entire campaign.

It seems that Mr. Petukhov is still at it, and is not very supportive or
symapthetic to non-Soviet/Russian POVs. Remember: the world doesn't revolve
around Moscow, much as the Soviets wished it would. Russia is like France:
Once they were an empire, now they aren't, and have lost a lot of prestige
and territory as a result. Wistful thinking won't bring back the old empire
or prestige that came with it.

Crap, which even you cannot believe in. Note US casualties I have cited
are official pentagon numbers as well. For isntance we still do not know
how many US servicemen died in hospitals outside of Iraq etc.

I think you could do with knowing more about the history of the
British army, particularly the circumstances under whjich it was set
up.
