Here's a Terrific Idea That I'm Going to Steal

Atlas Shrugs (which is a blog I happened on today while surfing stories about the OSM launch) makes a terrific point about how the media constantly emphasize the number of US dead, but they don't tell us the other side of the story:

Every single day, they club us like baby seals. These men and women fighting the war on radical jihad and these harpies never note the number of deaths due to islamic terror, never so much as inquire. NUMBER OF DEAD! What is that number?


That is a superb idea, so I thought I'd start surfing around looking for the answers. First I Googled "Suicide Bombing in Iraq". Over three and a half million results were found.

Here goes. I will keep adding to this as I discover new events:

3/27 and 3/28/03:

A car bomb exploded Tuesday west of Baghdad, killing at least four people a day after three dozen people died in a wave of homicide bombings in the Iraqi capital. U.S. officials said one of Baghdad's three deputy mayors was killed in a hit-and-run shooting.

Total dead for the incidents described: 40


A truck bomb outside UN headquarters in Baghdad kills 22 people.

Total dead for the incidents described: 22


Eighty-five Iraqis were killed and 229 others injured on Friday in the earlier huge car bombing in Najaf, Iraq.

Total dead for the incident described: 85


At least 18 people have been killed and 29 others wounded in a car bomb explosion at an Iraqi police station in a town west of Baghdad.

A police lieutenant says 16 police officers are dead, as well as two civilians, including a seven-year-old girl.

Total dead for the incident described: 18


A double suicide attack outside Kurdish party offices kill 105 in Irbil.

Total dead for the incident described: 105


A suicide bomb outside a police station in Iskandariya kills 55 people.

Total dead for the incident described: 55


A suspected suicide bomber detonated a car bomb Monday morning at a police station in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, killing at least eight Iraqi national police officers and wounding about 35 others, U.S. military officials said.

Total dead for the incident described: 8


Co-ordinated attacks outside mosques in Karbala and Baghdad kill more than 170 people and wound dozens more.

Total dead for the incident described: 170


A car bomb that exploded outside a police recruiting center in central Baqouba on Wednesday killed 68 Iraqis and turned the city's busy streets into a bloody tangle of twisted metal and bodies.

Total dead for the incident described: 14


Fourteen people were killed and 40 wounded, including seven children, when a car bomb exploded outside a Shia mosque in Baghdad after Friday prayers this morning, Iraqi hospital officials said.

Total dead for the incident described: 14

2/28/05: BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- In the deadliest single insurgent attack of the Iraq war, a suicide car bombing killed 125 people Monday in Hilla where police recruits were waiting to get physicals, Iraqi government and health officials said.

Total dead for the incident described: 125


A suicide car bomb exploded in the Iraqi capital yesterday, killing one child and wounding at least four people, officials said. The bomber also died in the blast.

Total dead for the incident described: 1 (who cares about the bomber?)

5/4/05: A notorious militant group warned of more to come as it claimed responsibility for a devastating suicide bombing Wednesday in the Kurdish city of Erbil that was aimed at police recruits.

The blast Wednesday morning killed about 60 people....

Total dead for the incident described: 60


Another suicide car bomb exploded in Baghdad this morning, killing at least 17 people and wounding more than 80 others near a busy market in the east of the city.

Total dead for the incident described: 17


Iraqis react at the site of a car bomb explosion in Baghdad, Iraq. A suicide car bomb exploded where Iraqis gathered around US military patrol vehicle as U.S. troops were handing out sweets, killing one US soldier and at least 24 Iraqis, many of them children.

Total Iraqi dead for the incident described: 24


Insurgents pressing a campaign of violence in Iraq ahead of next month's constitutional referendum have killed five more people today (Friday) in a suicide bombing at a Baghdad bus terminal. Authorities say at least eight other people were hurt in the blast on a city bus.


A string of bombs killed 35 children and wounded scores of others as U.S. troops handed out candy Thursday at a government-sponsored celebration to inaugurate a sewage plant. It was the largest death toll of children in any insurgent attack since the start of the Iraq conflict.

The bombings in Baghdad's (search) western al-Amel neighborhood — at least two of which were in cars — came amid a series of savage attacks that killed at least 51 people and wounded 230 nationwide. At least one U.S. soldier was among the dead and 13 were wounded.

Total Iraqi dead for the incident described: 50


BAGHDAD, Iraq, Nov. 10 - A man wearing a belt of explosives walked into a restaurant bustling with breakfast customers here on Thursday and blew himself up, killing at least 29 people and wounding 30, many of them police officers, the authorities said.

Total dead for the incident described: 29


Suicide bombers killed at least 90 worshipers Friday inside two Shiite Muslim mosques northeast of the capital near the Iranian border, and a pair of car bombs outside a Baghdad hotel that houses foreign journalists destroyed a nearby apartment building and left several more people dead.

The back-to-back Baghdad blasts killed at least six and wounded more than 41, police said. At least two children were among the dead, police said.

Total dead for the incidents described: 96


An ambush on a joint U.S.-Iraqi patrol northwest of Baghdad left 15 civilians, eight insurgents and a U.S. Marine dead from a roadside bomb and the firefight that followed, a U.S. military statement said Sunday.

Total Iraqi dead for the incident described: 15

Running count of those murdered by Michael Moore's Minutemen: 1007

Obviously this is a long way from being complete or comprehensive. Please feel free to leave info in the comments or email me with other stories of Iraqi deaths at the hands of the insurgency. Links to articles giving specifics would be greatly appreciated. Note: I am only counting Iraqis killed by the terrorists. The US death toll is well-known.
