Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

76,000 Killed in Syria’s deadliest year yet

Some 76,021 people were killed in the war on Syria last year. A total of 33,278 of the victims were civilians, including 3,501 children, according a UK-based group that calls itself “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.”

[NOTE: Neither, the group’s credentials and their special interests, if any, nor their figures can be independently verified.]

The total number of casualties since the beginning of the 4-year attempt to destroy Syria is over 190,000, according to the UN figures.

More than 10 million people have been displaced, including 3.3 million who have fled to neighboring countries.

At least 50% of the Syrians live in extreme poverty.

Iraq

Meantime, the Iraqi government has released its figure for the ongoing casualties of George W. Bush’s war on Iraq (episode 2014):

  • Killed violently:  15,538 people
  • Wounded:  22,000+

Iraq Body Count (IBC), another UK-based NGO, has released its higher figure of 17,073 civilian deaths.

IBC says the number of civilians killed in Iraq in 2014 doubled from 9,743 in 2013, and almost quadrupled compared to 2012 (recorded violent deaths: 4,622).

However, the IBC figures “do not include combatant deaths, which even by the most cautious tallies have also seen a sharp rise in 2014,” said the group.

“During 2014 Iraq Body Count (IBC) recorded 17,049 civilian deaths from violence. This is the third highest civilian death toll after 2006 and 2007, and some months exceeding even those years’,” said IBC.

Afghanistan

The number of civilians killed and wounded in Afghanistan violence  during the first eleven months of this year was 9,617, with 3,188 people  killed and 6,429 others wounded, said the UN Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA).

“Children civilian casualties increased 33 per cent compared to 2013, with casualties among women up 12 per cent […] current projections indicate that 2014 will be the first year that the [reported] civilian casualty count will pass 10,000,” said the UN.

At least 4,634 Afghan police and military personnel were also killed in 2014, and thousands more wounded.
