US deaths on 9/11:
2752

US military deaths in Iraq:
1122

Civilian deaths in Iraq:
100000

US road deaths annually:
44000

US firearm homicides annually:
13526

(NB: these use the same formula as LJ poll bars, which add 14 pixels to all bars. Not ideal but I'll stick with it).

Just out of interest...

Is there a figure any where for British deaths in Iraq?

(although I wonder should there be one for "Blue on Blue" Incidents?)

One googlepause later...
