    Enduring Freedom Casualties - Special Reports

    Afghanistan

    There have been 1,487 coalition deaths -- 906 Americans, 11 Australians, one Belgian, 223 Britons, 131 Canadians, three Czech, 25 Danes, 21 Dutch, six Estonians, one Finn, 36 French, 31 Germans, two Hungarians, 22 Italians, three Latvian, one Lithuanian, four Norwegians, 15 Poles, two Portuguese, 11 Romanians, one South Korean, 26 Spaniards, two Swedes and two Turks -- in the war on terror as of October 27, 2009, according to a CNN count. Below are the names of the soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors whose deaths have been reported by their nation's governments. The list also includes one U.S. Defense Department civilian employee. The troops died in support of the U.S.-led Operation Enduring Freedom or the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. At least 4,399 U.S. personnel have been wounded in action, according to the Pentagon.


    this is why bush is awful
    He started a war and for what?
    The majority of terrorists don't reside in afghanistan and none of the 9/11 hijackers were from there

    just my two cents

    Most of the terrorists were trained there. They are not being trained there now. It's time to leave.

    I disagree. We leave, and they just pour right back in, detaching themselves from engaging the Pakistani's; who, will not pursue them over the border. A concerted effort by all countries involved to wipe them out is the only solution.

    Everyone's to busy being concerned with their turf.

    how is the tragic death of our sons and daughters sensationalized again?
    being appalled by w horrific war shouldn't be one sided

    Your subject title is certainly not very respectful. In fact, it's downright fucking insulting!
