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); post-invasion violent and non-violent
avoidable deaths total 4.5 million; 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 demand that an
Occupier must supply life-sustaining food and medical requisites “to the
fullest extent of the means available to it” (see: http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/y4gcpcp.htm
) but according to the WHO (see: http://www.who.int/countries/en/
) 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 Apartheid Australia).
Dr Gideon Polya has been teaching Biochemistry at a leading Australian university for 4 decades (he currently teaches Biochemistry theory and laboratory courses to second year Agricultural Sceince students). He published some 130 scientific works in a 5 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003). He has recently published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ); see also his contribution “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007): http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/ockham/stories/s1445960.htm ). He has just published a revised and updated 2008 version of his 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History” (see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ) as biofuel-, globalization- and climate-driven global food price increases threaten a greater famine catastrophe than the man-made famine in British-ruled India that killed 6-7 million Indians in the “forgotten” World War 2 Bengal Famine (see recent BBC broadcast involving Dr Polya, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and others: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot/bengalfamine_programme.html ).
