The Global Research Institute on Saturday published a report showing that the United States has killed more than 20 million people in 37 countries since the Second World War, including millions of Muslims, mostly children, women, patients, civilians and senior citizens. 15 million people have been killed in Iraq, Vietnam and Korea.
The Pentagon claims that "after the Second World War, the United States and its allies installed" the United States and its allies in the United States, And the opening of the international system to protect the freedom of the people from aggression and coercion, but that "undermines this system at the present time by Russia and China, which violate the principles and rules of international relations." This is a total reflection of historical reality.
Professor Michael Chosudovsky, Director of the Center for Globalization Research, reminds us that these two countries, which were listed as enemies today, were the ones who, when they allied with the United States during World War II, achieved victory over the Nazis. - Approximately 26 million from the Soviet Union and 20 million from China, compared with just over 400,000 from the United States.
With this introduction, Chossudovsky will submit to the Global Research a documented study by James A. Lucas on the number of people killed by the series of wars and coups of continuous and uninterrupted and other subversive operations carried out by the United States since the end of the Second World War. 1945 to date - an estimated 20 to 30 million victims. Nearly twice as many deaths as World War I, Paris celebrated its centennial in Paris with a peace forum.
Besides the deaths, the wounded, who often find themselves paralyzed for life - some experts say that for every person killed in the war, ten others were injured. This means that the number of people who have suffered burns to the United States must be counted as hundreds of millions.
We must add to this estimate in the study an unspecified number of deaths, perhaps hundreds of millions, that have occurred since 1945 to date, because of the indirect effects of wars - famine, epidemics, forced migration, slavery and exploitation. Environmental damage, and subtract resources from vital needs to cover military expenditures.
The study documents wars and coups carried out by the United States in 30 Asian, African, European and Latin American countries.
The report reveals that US military forces are directly responsible for the deaths of between 10 and 15 million people, because of the major wars - those against Korea and Vietnam and the wars against Iraq. Between 10 and 14 million more deaths from proxy wars fought by the US-trained and allied US-trained armed forces in Afghanistan, Angola, the Congo, Sudan, Guatemala and other countries.
The Vietnam War, which spread to Cambodia and Laos, caused an estimated 7.8 million deaths (in addition to a large number of injuries and genetic damage to generations caused by dioxins sprayed by US aircraft).
The CIA's 1980 war in Afghanistan was organized by the CIA, which trained and trained, in cooperation with Osama bin Laden and Pakistan, more than 100,000 Mujahideen to fight the Soviet troops that fell into the "Afghan trap" (as Zbigniew Brzezinski later described it) Mujahideen training began in July 1979, five months before the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan.
The bloodiest coups were organized in 1965 in Indonesia by the CIA - handing over the list of the first 5,000 communists and others who were indicted to death to Indonesian killing squads. It is estimated that between 500,000 and 3 million people are murdered.
