oh wait, thats right. you DONT live in Africa.
secondly, my "town" wouldnt be in the city. we;d be evacuated. but lets say it still happened and we didnt expect it. then i would hide under a bed, and they'd never see me. simple. i also wouldnt cry like a little baby, but you would be.
also, what country invades countries in Africa on a daily basis. if you dont know the answer, then you might as well admit that it really doesnt happen and that what i quoted from your statement is false.

War puts all parties involved in a state of political unrest. War always involves greed on the behalf of political leaders and corporations. War creates more hate. War hurts the economy. War causes suffering at home, as well as in the invaded nation. I can go on for ten minutes, but it would be pointless if you ignored all of these.
10,000-90,000 (tens of thousands)
0.0000015-0.000013% of our worlds population
the point is, is that when comparing those numbers to lets say, your city or school, its a lot of people, but comparing it on a worldwide scale, its nothing. that is the same result of 9/11, the Holocaust, and other similar situations.
there you go, and since you'll pull out the hundreds of thousands on me, then i will do that too.
0.00015-0.0013% of the worlds population
