I'm not part of this conversation but

mengzhi wrote, "deaths attributed to Mao has fluctuated from 30 to 100 million"

I often hear about this.
Is it true?
Was Chairman Mao responsible for so many dead Chinese people?
And if so, how?

America has lost respect world wide and makes our people look bad.  Our own government killed our own people by hiring muslims to crash into world trade centers then brain washed the whole population stating that the muslims are terrorists and we need justice by attacking Iraq. America just needed to create a plot which give a reason to attack Iraq so that American and other countries companies could invest into the Iraqi oil industry which then Iraq will join the OPEC.

Saddam Hussein signed his death certificate when he decided to nationalist Iraq's oil.

America has no business being in Iraq and promoting democracy, Iraqis know what works for them and we should just let nature take it's course.

Muddy thinking.

convair is grasping at straws here. Famines, earthquakes, tsunamis are natural disasters causing untold deaths and distructions. They are NOT the results of government policy. If you can attribute the famine toll to Mao, would you debit  Dubya with the toll by hurricane Katrina ? This is so muddied thinking even Bollywood would reject your script.

Do you have figures of the millions of unrecorded deaths in foreign lands as a direct result of the Yankee interventions ? To use Pinochet to kill his fellow Chileans should be credited to Uncle Sam. Marcos was a similar stooge, Saddam was, Papa Doc , Batista , the list goes on......... If you are truely an objective historian ( what is BBA  anyway ? ) you would be looking into these statistics in seeking the TRUTH !

Shame on you mengzhi ! you will not even beleive statistics by nuteral observers. You have just made my case of your bias towards blaming america for the worlds faults. I will give you the same link I did to post #58.

Killed through U.S. foreign policy since WWII: 10,774,706 to 16,856,361 (1945-May 2003

Don't bother to reply till you can make a factual (not accuzational) statement. You are wandering in your attacks on logic and facts, creating your version as you go. OK : I'll play along WERE THE BAD GUYS -

I really thought we were going to have a discussion here, I guess I was wrong!

Earthquakes and tsunamis are indeed natural disasters.
Famines however have been linked to governmental policies have they not?
