Deaths by War and Oppression during the 20th Century

............... Military......Collateral....Democide*...Famine......Total

Wartime.....37m ..........27m........... 41m..........18m..........123m

Peacetime....0...............0..............40m...........40m...........80m

TOTAL.......37m ..........27m............81m...........58m..........203m


* Collateral = civilian deaths that are generally considered to be an unavoidable, legitimate byproduct of waging war.


Think that's bad? It just scratches the surface.


Isn't it time we figure out a new way to choose our leaders?

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

They are never elected.

They are instead selected.

Those at the helm want only what benefits them.

They could care less about "us".

There hasn't been a real election in a hundred years.

Probably because that list was 20th century deaths...

20th Century?

Get it?

1900-1999?

Not 2001+?

Click on the provided link. If you did click the link and that is the list you are talking about, then you are correct. 911 and after were omitted. Afghanistan is there, but not Iraq. Curious, that...

That just serves to add validity to my initial question.

And, AK, I'm not talking about the election process. I'm talking about the people we are accepting as leaders. We desperately need a new measuring stick.
