    Agreed, America is obsessed with blind obedience as Patriotism,

    Its people are (by% GDP) the 4th poorest in the world.

    It has less rights than Britian Pre-revolution (no 5th or 1st amendment).

    It has engaged in attacks in 49 different Countries since 1950.

    It has committed 32 invasions of other countries since 1950.

    ...............................12 out of the 41 million of all war deaths since 1945 are BY Americans (29%)

    8,200 military and 3,000 'civil' of 41 million war deaths since 1945 ARE American's (0.027%)

    ....................49 out of the 200 (24.5%) of all incidents in the world post 1950 were by the US

    It is the only country to use a Nuclear Bombs or W.M.D's in War.

    The US is The only country in the world that has never been Invaded by a foreign country.

    US military spending is HALF of its tax revenue.

    If you are an American your chances being killed by Terrorism is .....................1 in 20000000 (0.000005%).

    If you are a non American, your chances of being killed by an American is ......1 in 600 (0.0017%).

    This does not account for those dying of sickness and poverty due to US exploitation.

    The 9/11 attacks were targeted at the World Trade Center the White house and the Pentagon.

    These three were more responsible for world suffering than anyone who could have been targeted, as the stock market feeds of the exploitation of the poor and gives the rich money without working.

    The US attacked 2 different countries in the wake of 9/11. Neither of which had supported WMD's or Terrorism.

    Osama bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia, Trained by the US and was claimed to have been found in Pakistan (who have WMD's) ..... Both countries support terrorism and are funded and armed by its ally the USA.

      The people who 'supposedly' carried out 9/11 armed only with box cutters were held to be Saudis (with one exception) Their unburned passports stated so, and the CIA confirmed that the next day after a lot of shovel work under the World Trade Centre building dodging liquid steel (caused by thermite)

    Hard to find a definite answer, Jenn was the only person to slightly answer the question. Actual "kills" would seem to be easy to estimate, but the underlying motive is to cripple or "kill" the country we invade to benefit and justify our military expenses. The actual number of people killed should be measured by the loss of the next several generations as a result of US military involvement in ANY conflict.

    I would take Jenn's number and multiply it against itself, then we can see how war is an illusion. Its really selective population reduction for the purpose of gaining economic control or advantage. WE AREN'T FREE, does anyone actually think our government cares if anyone else is free? We've moved past any kind of "defense", we're opportunists. Now we create "opportunities"- the "war on terror" was our invention, as was the war against communism. Come on who, did we ever save from tyranny or oppression? certainly not ourselves!

    I would say millions and millions and millions, it is far out of calculation, is has to be a number so big that will scare just to know since the USA have been present in every conflict and war in every country in the world!

    Remember history is writen by the powerfull and the winers, not by the loosers!

      Thank you for putting this shocking information in one place. Our country needs to change its ways. This is a great national shame. We so often side with a 'friendly' government, against rebels who are often peasants and are fighting for their freedom.

      I don't quote any German on the subject of the war crimes of other nations. They should sit down and STFU.

    For the sake of keeping this out of the realm of the ridiculous, I'm excluding everyone that died as part of legitimate peacekeeping missions and actual Americans. This is like a really rough look at how many NON-AMERICANS we've killed (i.e. not on our side at the time) since the 30s via military and economic intervention, rounded generally down to the nearest thousand (things with <1000 deaths like Grenada bombings not included) or so on conservative or moderate estimates since the dropping of the bombs in Japan. Hold on, this is going to get ugly.

    Death toll: 145,000 to date in Nagasaki, 250,000 in Hiroshima

    1947-49 - U.S. helps command extreme-right Greece party in Civil War.

    Death toll: about 2,000

    1960-75+ - Vietnam War including Cambodia and Laos

    Death toll: about 4,502,000 including civilians and resulting famines (conservative estimates)

    1961 - Cuba's Bay of Pigs Invasion fails

    Death toll: about 4,000

    1963 - In Iraq, CIA organizes coup against President and agrees to back formerly exiled Saddam

    Death toll: about 7,000 including civilians

    1965 - CIA assists Indonesian coup

    Death toll: about 900,000

    1982-84 - Marines expel Lebanese rebels, aided by Israel

    Death toll: 40,000

    1987-88 - US intervenes for Iraq against Iran

    Death toll: about 150,000 during time-frame, 100,000 during Desert Storm, 350,000 from resulting famine

    1989 - US invades to oust CIA-installed Panamanian government gone rouge

    Death toll: 2,000

    And that doesn't even include POWs, classified information, and WW2 pre-nuke!

      It also fails to consider all the civilian casualties within Europe, during ww2. The civilian carnage from strategic bombing of major cities was tremendous, and it didn't only affect Germany, but also other cities, all over Europe... & the American-Armed Soviets slaughtered millions within Europe.
