refer to R.J. Rummel's work at the University of Hawaii. What I can tell you is that he postulates that about 20 million people have been killed by acts of genocide from 1…945-1987. This professor emeritus also says that 76 million people were killed in what he calls "democide," which is murder committed by a government of it's citizens.
Around 17 million people were killed in World War I.

the middle east became rich because of oil
More Americans died in the civil war than in WWI, WWII, D-Day, and Vietnam combined. Over 23 million troops.

Nobody; there is no such thing as a christian war, only power hungry/greedy people exploiting uneducated/easily led people into thinking that they are performing a duty to God…. Christ taught us to turn the other cheek and refused to lead people in resistance to the romans. You only need to look at what happened in the garden of Gethsemane to see how Christ wants us to deal with conflict situations, through self sacrifice and love. Look at how the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have worked out as a form of conflict resolution. Much of the world sees this as a modern day crusade only this time the battle cry is not " Deus Vult" (God wills it) it is: revenge for 9/11 (and hand over any oil reserves you happen to have). I know Iraq was not linked to 9/11 but the invasion was only possible in the climate of fear perpetrated by western governments based around rogue states and terrorism. Exactly the same kind of people who were responsible for the crusades are responsible for the modern day "crusades". Hereditary dynasties of power-hungry families (Bush corporation for example, one of the most wealthy oil families in the world) looking for new countries to exploit, just as the major power base families in medieval Europe needed new areas to implement their system of feudalism for younger sons/ displaced barons etc. (Count Bohemond of Lombardy for example, an illegitimate son robbed of his lands by a younger brother was to become one of the most successful land grabbers in the middle east when he took Antioch.) As far as I am concerned the term Christian War is a contradiction in terms and any study of the new Testament will show you the real Christian method of conflict resolution.
In US in WW2
in the first world war people did not want us to get involved but we did in the second world war people were complaining that we were not getting involved so we got involved. …so it was kinda like whatever we do we are the bad guy. but thats all I know.
Governments treated them poorly, especially in Iraq and Turkey
The cold war was cold because there were no battles, therefore no one was killed in combat.
Around 5 to 6 million people died of famine in twentieth century.
I'm pretty sure it was Wilhelm the second. But I don't know for sure. I'm just a kid.
