Think about it, Frenchy. In half those countries/regions, warfare accounted for the dead -- warfare, I might add, that was instigated and perpetrated by Western powers. The United States bombed Vietnam into rubble. The United States devastated Cambodia, laying the groundwork for the Khmer Rouge. The United States backed the right-wing terror squads in Latin America and Africa which declared war on the "communists."

This is not to deny Stalin and Mao their places in Hell, but you must examine the entire picture when throwing around statistics.
