The Killing In Iraq

Kamel Makhloufi
October 27, 2010

Kamel Makhloufi developed a simple but powerful pixel diagram that highlights the past human death toll during the Iraq war. Each pixel has a color, where blue stands for "friendly", green represents "host Nation", orange are "civilians" and grey denotes "enemies".

The left diagram is ordered by category, whereas the right one lists the casualties by time, or how you can dilute the media impact of a massacre by killing a few people each day for 6 years. Just remember that host nation + civilian + enemies = mostly Iraqis. Used the cleaned dump from The Guardian.
