from the French Colony´s 239600 Dead. If you can belive it ???

Not that hard to believe. During the battle of the frontiers in first month of the war there were 500 000 casualties. The war would continue for 4 more years with some 30-40 million casualties. The old world marched off to war in Europe and died there. Unfortunately,  the new one didn't turn out be any better.

Russian Casualties numbered 9 Millions,
German 8.1.
And Casualties are still counting, with enough ammunition still in the ground in Europe.

i never understood why the indians never rebellious against the brits, and always obedient

I don't think  that is fair to say.

They are no different than anyone else.  Look throughout history...it tells the same story over and over.  How many peoples have been conquered and occupied across the globe?  It seems the cases where there is the most differences between conquerer and conquered - especially race (but can be religion) - this adds a whole different dynamic to it.  

No one would really get all that upset about how slovaks were occupied by hungary in the austrian-hungarian empire.  No one really talks about the ottoman empire in the ME either.   No one makes comments like 'why were they obedient?'  People do what they have to do as always.

indians did rebel, there was a major one in the 1800s. brutally crushed.. Look at the Palestians now. Weak people can still rebel, but it is not effective.

Normal action for a colonial power to abuse the people for there own gain and profit. Many did not ...

it depends on what we consider to be 'normal' in human morality... thanks for letting us know what you consider as normal in your way of thinking!
