The World seldom at Peace only always at War

"True peace is not the absence of war; it is the presence of God." Phil. Star, Sept 21, 2015 How deadly is the American military? It is difficult to measure how many enemy deaths American armed forces have inflicted... Americans and their allies typically cause 10 to 20 times more combat casualties than American forces suffer... Estimates of Iraqi soldiers killed in the Gulf War range from 1,500 to 100,000. The lowest figure would still be 10 times the number of Americans killed in the war... Approximately 850,000 Vietcong died in the Vietnam War, 18 times the 47,000 U.S. dead... More than 600,000 North Korean and 1 million Chinese fighters died in the Korean War, almost 50 times the 33,000 American dead... In World War II, 3,250,000 German and 1,507,000 Japanese soldiers, sailors, and pilots were killed, 16 times the 291,000 American servicemen who were killed. It is glaringly obvious, if not alarmingly stupid, that if God were only always omnipresent, never omniabsent - there would be more peace than wars in this world...
