2000 dead

My thoughts are with those who died and their survivors, but I can't help feel many anti-war activists are delighted to be able to wave this magic number around. But recent stats on Death Due to Injury for 2002 show
  • 48,366 dead from Transport Accidents
  • 58,376 dead from Nontransport Accidental Injuries
  • 31,655 dead from Intentional self-harm
  • 31,655 dead from Intentional self-harm
  • 17,638 dead from Assault
  • 2,843 dead from Complications of medical and surgical care and sequelae
I wrote something similar earlier.
