The explanation of how you connect all that to capitalism must be a great work of fiction like what comes out of the President's mouth.

Very impressive statistics you dreamed up there. Did you not notice that the 0 key on your computer got stuck and printed an extra two 0s on the end of those figures. Even if half that many people had actually died, where do you come up with the idea that capitalism is responsible

What a load of BS---
Most of the wars you are talking about with regard to the USA were started by the DEMOCRAT PARTY.
The rest were done by kings and dictators, which is what the DNC wants to be.
Hurricane Katrina?!?! That was a freak weather event that Mr. CHOCOLATE CITY wasn't prepared for.
Building an empire is not capitalism.
Why don't you tally up the deaths from malaria in the Third World because DDT got banned? Or the oil for food program in Iraq? Or the deaths caused by the atheist hitler, communist stalin and mao-ze dung?

all I can say is communism killed way more. stalin killed more jews than hitler. kim jong il probably starved a couple million north koreans to death, mao's cultural revolution and great leap backward messed things up, pol pot was a dick. and the information you post is very questionable, and some aren't even due to capitalism. capitalism has done much more good for the world than socialism/communism. i used to be a communist/ socialist like you. i understand.

well, that was a lovely story, and you told it so well, with such enthusiasm.
You way overstated the deaths in nearly all incidents, and most were do to the lack of real capitalism. Not sure how you link any of those to capitalism without a bong.

Communism for our future friend.
Nobody starves, nobody has worse health care than another.
Stalin is not Communism, he was a conservative.
Mao Zedong is not a good example, but he in some ways emulates communism, with a Stalin taint.
Communism, the Marxist way, for our future!

we get it, your definition of capitalism is: anything you don't like

No. you appear to be completely disconnected from reality.
