Absolutely. What a bunch of hogwash. And the anti-America imps
will come trailing along to eat it all up ....
The OP blames America for all deaths on the planet. The figures and
the 'reasonings' are absolutely insane.

In the end of this story and the way this discussion should be closed is that there is a lot of evil in this world and there will remain to be evil. The most we can do about it is do what we do best, soldier on.

Im confused how you are cooking your numbers up here,
How you decide to add instences to the list if the US even sold/supplied anything to somebody and they used it.
And yet you leave out numbers where the US Dropped a Nuke on two cites...?
but what are you trying to prove?
Now, go find out how many the Romans slaughtered as the made and matianed thier great empire.

I'm not justifying it, I'm merely stating that posting all these statistics won't change or solve anything whatsoever.
The only thing it will do is add one more checkmark to a list of why people don't like the country.
Are you going to plan a revolution?
Are you going to kill the people who kill people to teach them that killing is wrong?
I'm all up for using statistics as interesting trivia, but learning that the united states has killed 27 million people does not change my opinion about anything in life whatsoever.
So the united states has killed a third of a single percent of what the world's population is now.
They must be the worst country on earth.
Surely every single citizen of the country had something to do with those murders and personally killed people!
Look, I live in the united states and have never murdered anybody. I don't know anyone who has.
The government is not the people and the people are not the government. The percentage of this country who have done those killings is miniscule.

The US isn't the only country responsible for deaths.
Isn't it funny how we've all heard about the atrocities of the other empires and tyrants, yet this thread is all news to probably 90+% of it's readers?
