    Interesting. I would have to contest some of your estimates and also point out that if you claim these deaths are attributed to capitalism then at least some of the wars, such as the Korean War or Spanish Civil War, had two sides to those conflicts and it was generally considered a contest between fascism (for the Spanish Civil War) and communism and not capitalism against something else and Democracy vs. Hereditary Feudalism (though called Communism) in North Korea. Clearly though some of your figures can be attributed to capitalism, such as cigarette deaths or the Union Carbide Bophal Disaster.

    Take a good hard look at Islams imbecilic fanatical misfit clerics . . . . . . . . .

    They've assassinated, murdered, tortured, imprisoned and committed more atrocities over the past centuries against their own people's and none Muslims than all other evil dictates the entire combined world has seen. Its the most recent and yet the most vile form of religious dictatorship ever to permeat this planet . . . . . .

    Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi, Iran, Kuwait + countless other African ruled states and all other counties they rule by the knife, sword, gun, fear, intimidation etc, etc. etc.

    Allowed to walk into any country and demand everything . . . . . setting up their Muslim councils and brotherhoods and thus preventing Muslims who left their own countries for a better way of life, its freedom, liberty and the right to choose and make their own decisions etc, an impossible dream .

    I started to understand what you were saying at first but then I started to read your comment and realized how stupid you must be!...Please explain to me how "american soldiers fighting in the name of capitalism" has to do with Hurricane Katrina? What are you talking about? LOL!! Katrina was a natural disaster, your really going to blame all of those death on american soldiers fighting in the name of capitalism? ...your an idiot!! half the things you mention had nothing to do with US troops at all!! You mention "US intervention in Congo" and then the very next one is you mention is "Congo"...So your blaming american troops fighting in the name of capitalism for all the deaths in the Congo, and then your also blaming the US troops for the intrvention in the Congo? So all your saying is the US troops are to blame and if they try to intervene they still are to blame? LOL!!! your a nutcase buddy! you make no sense at all....get a life!!

    This is why it is so hard for the US to do anything in countries like Syria.....People are being slaughtered by their own government...If the US steps in then people will say "Mind your own business, stop trying to control the world, your trying to take control of the east!"...But then if the US does not step in then the same people will say "Your a super power, and your one of the richest countries on earth and you just sit there and watch people get slaughtered and do nothing about it?"...No matter what we do we will always be to blame!

    How do you blame America for diening kids. Its not like we go over to Africa and take their food from them. And katrina dude that's a natural disaster. You know WW2 not only America killed people, and we tried to stay neutral, until Japan attacked us. WW1 we entered really late after Germany tried to convince Mexico to invade the U.S.

    the ruling class of america spends alot of money on brain washing the american public. for example, in recent decades, the u.s regime will send in terorists to a country, destabilise it, and then invade it, saying there are human rights problems going on in the country. what they dont mention is that the human rights problems were caused by them the whole time. most americans just believe whatever their media tells them, so they think they are helping the victims, but when they get there, military officers tell them to join in on the human rights violations, and thats how millions of people die.

    Hurricane Katrina? Cigarettes?

    Most of the wars in Africa were not motivated by capitalism.

    Multiply that by 100 and you'd have the number of people murdered in the name of god.

    You're exaggerating the numbers!

    If you can count right, mate, you can easily see some of those numbers are totally wrong.

    Please, take a class of elementary calculus first, and then come back later.

    Why are you trying to blame Soldiers for fighting for capitalism? Ask any American soldier if they fight for capitalism and see what answers you get. Moron.

    Capitalism has NOTHING to do with why we fight. Educate yourself, fool.
