War in Iraq Casualties

War in Iraq Casualties

Obviously, t3h interwebz is full of photos and videos of War in Iraq casualties and we had a bunch posted on Best Gore as well, but these pictures are new to me. There are two different dead people. One of them seems to be an Iraqi freedom fighter while the other one, the one in the camo could be an American soldier. I’m not an expert on uniforms so perhaps someone who knows can confirm. Is that a camo worn by the US soldiers or not?

Also, can anyone explain why their faces are so black while clothes don’t seem to bear signs of exposure to fire (fabric would burn, right)? It almost seems as though they had something poured over their heads. Photos of two casualties of war in Iraq are below:

  1. That camouflage hasn’t been used by US troops since the first gulf war. It’s the “choco chip” pattern that has been adopted by the Iraqi Security Forces, so odds are this dude is an ISF soldier.

    US uniforms are all digital these days, bunch of pixels and squares. Plus this guy doesn’t have body armor on, or a helmet.

  2. U.S. forces don’t use the 3-color pattern anymore. most of the time they use a kind of digital pattern (ACU, MARPAT, MultiCam, etc.) and i think the Air Force is about to adopt a tiger-stripe pattern last i heard.

  3. If you look at the first inset pic, you can see the guy looks very swollen around the stomach area, most probably full of gas released from the later stages of decomposition – the fetid stinky stage. So I’d say the combination of heat and advance stage of decay probably accounts for the dude’s appearance.

  4. The epilets or collar tabs show three stars and suggest that he was a naqib or captain in the Iraqi Civil Defense Corps.(ICDC) The blackness is the result of oxydation from the sun. The swelling and wetness is from liquifaction. or where stomach acids and enzymes disolve through the stomach and begin putrifying the entire corpse. Vegetation shows Eucalyptus leaves on the ground and grasses. My guess is Mosul and the bodies have been there a week.

    I prefer a dry corpse over a wet corpse any day. The wet ones split and spill out on you when you try to move them and you will never get rid of the smell.
