Ole-

  620,000 killed in our war is a huge number, but the total number of humans killed in wars in the 19th Century was small compared to the 170 million killed in the 20th Century.

  Are we humans more: "enlightened" in the 21st century? Apparently, we are not. And you ask: "Why?" My answer is: "Because thats the way it has always been." There are just a lot more humans around than there has ever been before. We do things on a larger scale these days.

  My apologies to all who might be offended by my Machiavellian "bias."  :(
