Military Death Rates during Presidential Terms

 

I promise you that you are going to be surprised. . . amazed at these facts!

 

Considering what the media has been reporting since the begin of the Iraq war. This is not so much about politics as it is about how the Media can spin something for propaganda purposes.

 

Military Losses, 1980 thru 2007

 

Whatever your politics, however you lean, however you feel about the current administration, this report should open some eyes.

 

As tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is, consider the following statistics:

 

The annual fatalities of military members while actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2006:

 

1980 ......... 2,392 (Carter Year)

 

1981 ......... 2,380 (Reagan Year)

1984 ......... 1,999 (Reagan Year)

1988 ......... 1,819 (Reagan Year)

 

1989 ......... 1,636 (George H W Year)

1990 ......... 1,508 (George H W Year)

1991 ......... 1,787 (George H W Year)

1992 ......... 1,293 (George H W Year)

 

1993 ......... 1,213 (Clinton Year)

1994 ......... 1,075 (Clinton Year)

1995 ......... 2,465 (Clinton Year)

1996 ......... 2,318 (Clinton Year)

1997 ............ 817 (Clinton Year)

1998 ......... 2,252 (Clinton Year)

1999 ......... 1,984 (Clinton Year)

2000 ..........1,983 (Clinton Year)

 

2001 ............ 890(George W Year)

2002 ........ 1,007 (George W Year)

2003 ........ 1,410 (George W Year)

2004 ........ 1,887 (George W Year)

2005 ........... 919 (George W Year)

2006............ 920 (George W Year)

2007............ 899 (George W Year)

 

Clinton years (1993-2000): 14,000 deaths

 

George W years (2001-2006): 7,932 deaths

 

If you are surprised when you look at these figures, so was I. These figures mean that the loss from the two latest conflicts in the Middle East are LESS than the loss of military personnel during Bill Clinton's presidency; when America wasn't even involved in a war!

 

And, I was even more shocked when I read that in 1980, during the reign of President (Nobel Peace Prize winner) Jimmy Carter, there were 2,392 US military fatalities! I think that these figures indicate that many members of our Media and our Politicians will pick and choose the information they report.

Of course we all know that they present only those 'facts' that support their agenda-driven reporting. But why do so many of them march in lock-step to twist the truth? Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for their agenda?

 

It became clear to me that our mainstream media continues to spin these figures (for political gain). It's all about politics and some politicians, are now famous for turning American against American for a vote. Consider Hillary Clinton's stump speech after her Super Tuesday 'victory' stating that the current administration does not listen' to anyone and continues the war costing precious American lives.

 

Yes I might even agree with her, but she will not acknowledge her own husband's administration, without having an actual war, sent more soldiers to death during his presidency. Bill Clinton is on record of forcing the military to release Osama when we actually had him detained at the time.

 

I am not suggesting that any particular political party is necessarily right, there is a lot wrong with every political agenda, None of it will be fixed without Jesus.
