Thomas P.M. Barnett

Thomas P.M. Barnett

There is no battle space the U.S. Military cannot access. They said we couldn’t do Afghanistan. We did it with ease. They said we couldn’t do Iraq. We did it with 150 combat casualties in six weeks. We did it so fast we weren’t prepared for their collapse. There is nobody we can’t take down. The question is, what do you do with the power?

Ta-Nehisi Coates

Ta-Nehisi Coates

The casualties in the Civil War amount to more than all other wars – all other American wars combined. More people died in that war than World War II, World War I, Vietnam, etc. And that was a war for white supremacy. It was a war to erect a state in which the basis of it was the enslavement of black people.

Steven Pinker

The 9/11 strikes left an indelible impact on our minds, but in relative terms, the scale of casualties actually wasn’t all that high.

Steven Van Zandt

Within three hours of a disaster event there should be a recon damage assessment of the infrastructure and an educated guess as to the casualties and degree of imminent human peril.

Silvan Shalom

Sebastian Junger

I decided to start a medical training program for freelancers, only freelancers. They’re the ones who are doing most of the combat reporting. They’re taking most of the risks. They’re absorbing most of the casualties. And they’re the most underserved and under-resourced of everyone in the entire news business.

Sebastian Junger

Sebastian Junger

What is and isn’t justified by military necessity is, naturally, open to interpretation. One of the key concepts, though, is the law of proportionality. A military attack that results in civilian casualties – ‘collateral damage’ – is acceptable as long as the military benefits outweigh the price that is paid by humanity.

Peter Arnett

Peter Arnett

Our reports about civilian casualties here, about the resistance of the Iraqi forces, are going back to the United States. It helps those who oppose the war when you challenge the policy to develop their arguments.
