WAR: the consequences - from history and the impending future!

Some 'Ancient' History – the 20th Century – the Progressive Utopian Dream!
World War 1 - Both Military and Civilian
Deaths: 16.5 million
Wounded: 20 million
Total WW1 Casualties: 35 million +

World War 2 - Both Military and Civilian
An estimated total of 70–85 million people perished.

The above are estimates – so give or take a million. But as our old friend and philosopher Josef Stalin said: One death is a tragedy – millions are a statistic!

Moving on – KoreaVietnam – etc.etc.etc

Recent History

The impending future – why? - “As we have previously found, the US public exhibits only limited aversion to nuclear weapons use and a shocking willingness to support the killing of enemy civilians,” write the report’s authors

The Reality - A war with North Korea could result in about 10,000 American combat-related casualties in the first few days alone, according to US military planners.

Is Our Leadership Sane? - The United States military has decided that the only chance it has of maintaining a stranglehold over its empire is to actively contemplate the scenarios and situations in which it should deploy the use of nuclear weapons.
