Daily Herald: Iraq Death Toll an Important Reminder

Thank you for bringing the catastrophic number of Iraqi casualties to America’s attention.

Your article, “Secret tally: At least 87,215 Iraqis dead since 2005,” served as a much needed reminder for Americans that U.S. soldiers are not the only ones who are losing their lives in great numbers because of the Iraq War.

The true cost of this war cannot be understood without knowing about the men, women and children in Iraq who are suffering from heartbreaking losses due to a war started by our country.
