Native Americans: approx 10 million
You might as well blame the Spanish for 100 million deaths since they brought the diseases, so let take 9.5 million off the top here since we did have
wars with them I’ll still say 500k.
Philippines: approx 1 million
Wow, do you just look for the biggest number and then say it is a fact? It actually says 20k dead with 16k counted with 200k from major cholera
epidemic during that period.
So I can pull a number out of my butt too..lets say 50k to make everyone happy. That puts us at 550k now
Vietnam: 3+ million
US Bombs Laos: 350,000+
US role in Cambodia: 600,000 dead and 1,000,000+ wounded
Some more extremely inflated numbers…From your link it basically said 1.1 million military deaths and up to 2 million civilian deaths on both side.
So how many of these deaths were from the 520k north army, 350k Chinese army, 350k Korean army.
Or did America kill them all….
We will take 1 million to put us at 1.55 million even though it was much lower, but I feel generous.
Cambodia under Pol Pot: 2 million massacred
I can’t figure this one out… Pol Pot was a communist and fought for the north in Vietnam. He killed 2 million of the educated population in Laos
to setup his own dictatorship/communist rule…even the Americans there were killed…
Hmm we will just let Pol Pot have all these.
We are still at 1.55 million
Ok whatever… It is suggested the CIA supported the coup so we get the bill of the 500k…is there anyone else involved in any of this or is America
to blame for everything.
Another big zero here…and we are still at 1.55 million
Hussein goes to war with Iran in 1980: 875,000+ dead
Actually Iran’s army was superior to Iraq’s and so Iraq was going to lose rather easily to Iran, and because of this America supported Iraq to
balance the powers…well they fought each other because they do not like each other… They didn’t need to fight, so this one is on them not
1.55 million still
Hussein slaughters Iraqi Kurd's / other Iraqi's: 182,000 - 400,000
10 years of no fly zones to protect them… this one is on Saddam
1.55 million still
US gives Iraq green light to invade Kuwait:
Does any of this blame actually go on the country that did all the invading…just makes me laugh…
US attacks iraq: 80,000
I agree…but in the defense of Kuwait...ok finally one that we actually were there and did..
Iraqi's dead from US sanctions: 500,000 children dead
I agree, but it was UN sanctions…
To make my number easier and make you happy 2 million
Iraqi's dead from US-Iraq War / occupation: over 600,000
Well kind of… 100k from us and 500k from insurgents/religious differences. So that puts us at 2.1 million
El Salvador: 50,000-75,000
Argentina's Dirty War: 30,000
Operation CONDOR (Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay & Uruaguay): 80,000+ Dead/Disappeared
Getting tired debating everyone of these, but due to your normal inflated numbers I’ll give ya 200k in all these (2x what was directly killed in the
Iraq war by us) so even 10% of that number is closer to the real thing,
2.3 million now
US trained assaulting forces in the 2nd Congo War: 3,800,000
When we help its our fault…when we don’t help its our fault..this goes back to that just maybe the ones who did the fighting are the ones who did
the killing…makes sense..
Plus Africa is one crazy place full of crazy people so they will kill each other with or without any help. They don’t care…no points here..
CIA baited USSR in Afghanistan: 1,500,000+
Lol, another whatever….so we supported Afghanistan in this…China supported North Vietnam, but no word from you on how many people were killed from
their support, and in fact without their support the Vietnam war would had been over quickly and the south would had of won.
Blame Russia here.. you can also add it to the 250 million deaths from communism…
Oh BTW Russia built up Iran's army but still you want to give just us the bill for 800k deaths in the Iran/Iraq war..you my friend makes little sense
in all these.
So where were we…2.3 million…
That is still a lot, but hey its been 250 years….
