Military Deaths

This is a copy of an e-mail I received recently.  I have not been able to verify the numbers yet but perhaps someone can check the link.  It is true that more soldiers were deployed under Clinton than under the previous Presidents without an actual war to fight.  At the same time Clinton reduced themilitary to an unhealthy size. 

As tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is, consider the following statistics:

The annual fatalities of military members while actively serving in the
armed forces from 1980 through 2006:

1980 ………. 2,392 (Carter Year)
1981 ………. 2,380 (Reagan Year)
1984 ………. 1,999 (Reagan Year)
1988 ………. 1,819 (Reagan Year)
1989 ………. 1,636 (George H W Year)
1990 ………. 1,508 (George H W Year)
1991 ………. 1,787 (George H W Year)
1992 ………. 1,293 (George H W Year)
1993 ………. 1,213 (Clinton Year)
1994 ………. 1,075 (Clinton Year)
1995 ………. 2,465 (Clinton Year)
1996 ………. 2,318 (Clinton Year)

1997 …………. 817 (Clinton Year)
1998 ………. 2,252 (Clinton Year)
1999 .. …….. 1,984 (Clinton Year)
2000 …….. ..1,983 (Clinton Year)
2001 …………. 890 (George W Year)
2002 ………. 1,007 (George W Year)
2003 ………. 1,410 (George W Year)
2004 ………. 1,887 (George W Year)
2005 …….. … 919 (George W Year)
2006………….. 920 (George W Year)
2007……… …899 (George W Year)

Clinton years (1993-2000): 14,000 deaths

George W years (2001-2006): 7,932 deaths

If you are surprised when you look at these figures, so was I. These figures
mean that the loss from the two latest conflicts in the Middle East are LESS
than the loss of military personnel during Bill Clinton’s presidency; when
America wasn’t even involved in a war!

And, I was even more shocked when I read that in 1980, during the reign of
President (Nobel Peace Prize winner) Jimmy Carter, there were 2,392 US military
fatalities! I think that these figures indicate that many members of our Media
and our Politicians will pick and choose the information on which they report.
Of course we all know that they present only those ‘facts’ which support their
agenda-driven reporting. But why do so many of them march in lock-step to twist
the truth? Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for their agenda?
Obviously there is one shared agenda, and I believe it is clear it comes from
the most powerful Democratic family of the decade.

Do you want further proof? Consider the latest census, of Americans. It
shows the following FACTS about the distribution of American citizens, by Race:
European descent ……………………..69.12%
Hispanic ………………………………….. 12.5%
Black ………………………………………..12.3%
Asian ……………………………………….. 3.7%
Native American ………………………. ..1.0%
Other ……………………………………….. . 2.6%

Now… here are the fatalities by Race; over the past three years in Iraqi
Freedom:
European descent (white) ………….74.31%
Hispanic ………………………………. 10.74%
Black …………………………………. .. 9.67%
Asian ……………………………………. 1.81%
Native American ……………………… 1.09%
Other ……………………………………. 0.33%

The point here is that our mainstream med ia continues to spin these figures (for political
gain). Nothing more.
It’s all about politics and some politicians, are now famous for turning
American against American for a vote. (Consider Slick Willy and his comments
just recently made about South Carolina, Jesse Jackson, and the ‘blacks’ voting
for the ‘black’ candidates); or Hillary’s stump speech after her Super Tuesday
‘victory’ stating that the current administration does not ‘listen’ to anyone
and continues the war costing precious American lives. Yes, we might even agree
with her, but she should be made to acknowledge her own husband’s
administration, without having an actual war, sent more soldiers to death
during his regime-while also forcing the military to release Osama when we
actually had him detained.

Maybe during the time between now and November, intelligent
Americans can decipher the facts from the spin and the spinners from the
leaders; those who seek even more power from those that seek justice, the
dividers from the uniters.

Over the next months let’s be good listeners (yes, Hillary we are listening)
and see and hear who tries to divide our nation; and who wants to unite our
nation. Who wants to control how our money is spent and who wants our money
spent the way we would spend it. Who seeks power and who seeks justice?
Who spins the facts and who is genuine

  1. Military Deaths…

    Could it be that the NAACP, Sharpton and others were assisting Hillary Clinton? I heard a shock-jock radio commentator this morning say he believes the NAACP and Sharpton are a little worried about a Black President because it would ……
