More U.S. citizens murdered in Mexico than deaths in Iraq in 2010

Posted By Crush • [November 02, 2010]

Following the murders of four American citizens over the weekend in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juárez, the number of U.S. citizens killed in Mexico has actually surpassed the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq.

57 members of the U.S. Armed Forces have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2010 - only 20 due to hostile actions. At least 58 American citizens have been murdered in Mexico this year. Two weeks ago, Liberty & Security Journal reported that Texas National Guard soldier José Gil Hernández Ramírez, 21, of El Paso, was also killed.
