            50/50? I would say 80% of the deaths were caused by "accidents" or friendly fire, for example:

            Killed when a rocket-propelled grenade launcher he was firing for familiarization malfunctioned at firing range near Kut, Iraq, on April 22, 2003

            Died when he was struck by a recovery vehicle while he was assisting a disabled vehicle in Ad Dujayl, Iraq, on February 20, 2004

            Died in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, from a non-hostile gunshot wound on November 12, 2003

            Non-hostile? what were guns made for? to paint pretty pictures. I will stick to being shot out of a canon thanks.
            1, Always look good
            2, Always know what you're doing
            3, In failure of step 2 refer to step one

              non hostile means he was shot by an accidental discharge of a firearm or was shot in trainning.

              At the end of the day it's not the safest of enviroments and they are actually doing pretty good in the way of accidental deaths, scary , but thats war.

                Pfc. Paul J. Bueche 19 131st Aviation Regiment, Army National Guard Daphne, Alabama Died when the tire he was changing on a UH-60 Black Hawk helicoper exploded on October 21, 2003, in Balad, Iraq.

                    Australia works on a 1% fatality rate for exercises, when you then go to a War zone things change a fair bit , when National Security is threatened there is clause that states that Occupational Health and Safety guidelines do not have to be followed. This means you can do whatever. But all units have to conduct risk assesments on all of their activities, at the end of the day the unit commander is responsible.

                    The US have lost alot of guys to friendly fire and accidents, but they've got over 100 000 guys in the area, thats more than 4 times the size of the entire Australian Army, If Australia put that many troops into a war zone our friendly fire/accidental deaths would be HEAPS higher than what the Americans have.

                      i thought it was any time they invoked the military policy (i cant remember the name) the OHandS went out the door .. ??

                      ahhh yes the army risk assessment system ...sooooo joyus

                        No certain units still have to abide by OHandS regardless of where they are and what they are doing, for example a mechanic still has to wear his safety google and gloves (or whatever they do to be safe) even if he is in a war zone,

                        At the end of the day the americans have seriously got there shit together when it comes to co-ordinating large numbers of troops all in the one area , all shooting at the bad guys and trying not to shoot each other.
