24,315 and 92,049

Here are our war dead.

Civilians estimated to have lost their lives as a direct or indirect result of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq respectively, including at the hands of insurgents. I’m taking the lower estimates – the upper ones are higher.

They were caught up in the fighting, or unable to get what they needed to survive.
