Overview: The Human Cost
More Nationalities

Of the 40 nations that had personnel stationed in the danger zone, 47 losses were suffered by the UK, 12 by Egypt, 10 by France, two by Spain, and approximately five by the UAE and three by Syria. After liberation, 66 Bangladeshi soldiers died mainly due to clearance of land mines and other types of unexploded ordnance. (We will publish more names here as we learn their identities.)

Some nations sent ground, naval, and air troops, while others sent just ground troops or ships or planes. Many contributed medical teams, and some provided chemical warfare experts to deal with the possibility of poison gas.

Germany had troops on standby in Turkey and, like Japan, contributed significant funding to the war effort.

In addition to the many Kuwaiti civilian deaths and injuries, the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait had deadly side-effects for civilians in neighboring states and for some trapped in Kuwait. When coalition aircraft bombed the Baghdad- Amman Highway in Jordan, 14 civilians were killed and 26 wounded. All told, 238 Jordanian civilians lost their lives due to the Gulf War. Iraqi missiles fired deliberately into populated areas killed two and wounded 230 civilians in Israel and killed one and wounded 65 civilians in Saudi Arabia. Among those foreign nationals who died during the occupation were 16 civilians from Sri Lanka, 13 from India, five from the UK, four from Pakistan, three from China, three from Pakistan, two from Poland, two from the US (including one unidentified), and one from Iran.

But the greatest damage of all perpetuated by Saddam Hussein and his Iraqi regime was against their own people. So many Iraqi military and civilian casualties resulted from the Kuwait invasion that the numbers are not even known. Estimates range from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands.

Even worse than these countless deaths and injuries were the decades of brutalization of the Iraqi population that turned thousands into monsters, that encouraged and rewarded looting, vandalism, mayhem, and torture, and that unleashed the heart of darkness lurking in all human beings.
