Iraq Casualties

I found a fascinating website a few months ago that reports Iraq War casualties. Here are some casualty stats that I found most interesting:

116 members of the US military have committed suicide in Iraq.
158 American Contractors have been killed in Iraq.
There have been 603 US fatalities year to date, on a pace to surpass the previous highest total in any previous year (849 in 2004).
Iraqi civilian deaths compiled only from news reports are estimated between 66,939 and 73,253. (Saddam was estimated to have killed 30,000 Iraqi's in his 30 years of rule)
Out of the 3606 US miltary casualties, 77 of them are female (2.14%)
