Death count of all wars
    #447054 - 07/16/10 01:59 PM (6 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone know where I should look for a graph with the death count of wars since it started being recorded?

I'm interested in looking at the trends, but don't feel like making a graph myself.

you might run into issues with the accuracy and the uniformity of reporting practices.

I'm certain the recorded amounts are fairly agreed upon.

I wasn't really talking about that, though it can present a problem in and of itself(look to the issues surrounding the Lancet study for the Iraq war).  But more along the lines that there might be accuracy issues between the reporting for ww2, and a war taking place in a modern, globally connected, society.


Also, what gets considered a war casualty can also defer from conflict to conflict.  Take for example the recent figures released for the Congo war, with it including deaths caused by failure of infrastructure and disease

Why don't you sign up and feel the thrill of living or dieing for your Country. Isn't that what the military is about? I'd rather smoke a bowl or something.

It depends, for some the military is an opportunity to make something of themselves. If I couldn't get pell grants I'd be serving because I couldn't accept not getting a college education, and couldn't really afford it any other way.


Some of my friends are in the military just to make enough money, and get school paid for.

However, I wish people would take it more seriously. I've seen alright dudes turn into outright douches from joining up, and I've known a few that couldn't handle the stress mentally.


But you know what they say... the ends justify the means.


:shrug:

Who knows though.
