Cost of the On-going Wars

See this op-ed and art for an illustration of the lives lost in Afghanistan by the outsiders.  It really does not make it to clear, except that the Brits and Canadians have paid the biggest price, except for the US.  It is also kind of strange to see (although not terribly surprising) to see Poland and Denmark (probably now exceeding in per capita casualties) separated from the residual category, whereas the Dutch are not.

I would say that the form of the figure tends to obscure more than it reveals, though.  Lots of stuff crammed into one page.
