At least 618,000 Americans died in the Civil War, and some experts say the toll reached 700,000. The number that is most often quoted is 620,000. At any rate, these casualties exceed the nation's loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam.
The Union armies had from 2,500,000 to 2,750,000 men. Their losses, by the best estimates: Battle deaths: 110,070 Disease, etc.: 250,152 Total 360,222
The Confederate strength, known less accurately because of missing records, was from 750,000 to 1,250,000. Its estimated losses: Battle deaths: 94,000 Disease, etc.: 164,000 Total 258,000
The leading authority on casualties of the war, Thomas L. Livermore, admitting the handicap of poor records in some cases, studied 48 of the war's battles and concluded: Of every 1,000 Federals in battle, 112 were wounded. Of every 1,000 Confederates, 150 were hit. Mortality was greater among Confederate wounded, because of inferior medical service.

Many Americans live a very nice life and don't need to protest is the simple fact. Heck even those in poverty have food on the table Xbox in their hands big screen in front of em etc. etc. etc. Police/Fire/Ambulance service right around the corner and a grocery store stocked with all one needs down the block. What is there to really protest about? You get pissed at your reps you let em know at the ballot box no need to run around whining and howling. Now people are protesting in the middle east because they want what we have..........freedom.

I am gonna answer by numbers and respectively :
1. in most of the countries assembling is not even allowed by law.
2. haven't people come to assume that media is betraying them ?
3.I think all of the governments are trying to keep their public blind.
with those answers my question is why people protest in other countries and in america nothing happens??
You believe we have freedoms. We have a corporate owned government. We have a corporate owned media. We are a fake democracy, in which the people and this country are being robbed of every single penny and resource to finance the multinational corporations and uber wealthy who manipulate them.
