      • How many Iraqis died in the 2003 Iraq war?
      • What are the implications for stability in Iraq, the "war
      on terrorism", and the "new warfare"?

      A new study from the Project on Defense Alternatives (PDA) estimates
      the total number of Iraqis killed in the 2003 war, based on hospital
      and burial reports, combat statistics, and battlefield testimony from
      both sides in the conflict. Uniquely, the report also distinguishes
      between noncombatant and combatant civilians (non-uniformed
      fighters.) And it compares the experience of Operations Iraqi Freedom
      and Desert Storm.

      2003 Conflict" by Carl Conetta. PDA Research Monograph #8, 20 October

      • Is an all European armed force a feasible option in the future?
      • What should it be like and how different from U.S. forces?

      A new PDA guest publication models an integrated European Armed
      Forces. It addresses the conceptual framework, strategic orientation,
      key functions, posture, resources, personnel, and budget.
