In war thousands of people are killed on the battlefield along with homes and places of work. Some people are just caught in the crossfire being at the wrong place at the wrong time. In Syria the war has a high toll. Some groups such as the Syrian Observatory, The United Nations (UN) and the Violations Documentation Center in Syria all seem to have different body count numbers. Each missing persons death is a disservice to the families wanting to morn their loved ones deaths during service. Unfortunately we cannot be too sure about these numbers at all. In some instances of war in other countries and time periods there is such a gap.”Estimates for deaths after the US-led invasion in 2003 ranged from 98,000 to as high as 650,000 (The Guardian”.
This brings us to the next question, why? How is their such a large disagreement in numbers of deaths during wars? There should never be this much dispute in a number of people’s deaths. Some are groups, some are private organizations bringing together numbers. The real question is how is there a 100,000 influx of dead people in the count. These organizations that put together these numbers should have full access to records and should not be able to display theoretical numbers without definitely being within a couple thousand. The public is entitled to an accurate number during hard times such as these. There is really only one simple answer as to why it is so fluctuated and it’s because of corruption within these organizations and government. They must receive more aid from the UN or more discipline when things are bad. In either case not showing respect for the people who fight for their cause being bad or good isn’t right to the families that have to learn about their loved ones deaths days, months or years down the road. Syria can not be the only ones having a misled death count. How can we predict future death counts when we can not even document them correctly in the first place.
