Dr Gideon Polya on Afghan Genocide carnage as of mid-December 2009: “As of
mid-December 2009 it is estimated from the latest UN Population Division data
that in Occupied Afghanistan post-invasion non-violent excess deaths total 3.4
million; post-invasion violent deaths total 1.1 million (assuming expert
US-Australian advice that the level of violence has been 4 times lower in the
Afghan War than in the Iraq War); and post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total
2.4 million (90% avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes in gross violence
of the Geneva Convention – Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative
to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War demands that an Occupier
must supply life-sustaining food and medical requisites “to the fullest extent
of the means available to it” but according to the WHO the “total annual
expenditure on health per capita” permitted in Occupied Afghanistan is $29 as
compared to $6,714 in Occupier US and $3,122 in Occupier racist, white
Gideon Polya in a previous detailed estimate of about 5 million post-invasion Afghan deaths (March 2009): “1. Using UN Population Division annual mortality data one can calculate (as of March 2009) post-invasion excess mortality of 3.1 million persons for Occupied Afghanistan (using a base-line annual mortality rate of 4 deaths per 1,000 of population for a peaceful, decently-run country with the same demographics).
2. Using UN Population Division data one can estimate post-invasion under-5 infant deaths at 2.25 million of which about 90% (2.0 million) have been avoidable deaths.
3. For impoverished Third World countries, under-5 infant deaths are about 0.7 of the total excess deaths. Accordingly, one can also estimate post-invasion excess deaths as 2.25 million/0.7 = 3.2 million (see “Layperson’s guide to counting Iraq deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5872/26/ ).
4. In Occupied Iraq post-invasion violent deaths have totalled 1.3 million as compared to post-invasion non-violent excess deaths of 1.0 million. Assuming that the violent/non-violent excess deaths ratio in Occupied Afghanistan is half that in Occupied Iraq, then the post-invasion violent deaths in Occupied Afghanistan would be 0.65 x 3.15 million = 2.0 million (see “Iraq invasion 6th anniversary. 2.3 million excess deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/29360/42/ ).” .
[In my later December 2009 estimate of violent deaths I adopted the advice of an Australian adviser to the US military that the level of violence in the Afghan War was about 4 times less than in the Iraq war. and that accordingly violent post-invasion deaths would total about 1 million.]
