When you publish data from your dodgy data file, you should at least check that it's still available on the Internet.

You're just running away and trying to waste everyone's time - while trying to cover up another disgusting evil.

You behave in this fashion in the hope that people will think that the truth is very difficult to find - when its in front of your nose here    https://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/papers/summary

Some of the Costs of War Project’s main findings include:

  • At least 800,000 people have died due to direct war violence, including armed forces on all sides of the conflicts, contractors, civilians, journalists, and humanitarian workers.  
  • It is likely that many times more have died indirectly in these wars, due to malnutrition, damaged infrastructure, and environmental degradation.
  • Over 335,000 civilians have been killed in direct violence by all parties to these conflicts.
  • Over 7,000 US soldiers have died in the wars.
  • We do not know the full extent of how many US service members returning from these wars became injured or ill while deployed.
  • Many deaths and injuries among US contractors have not been reported as required by law, but it is likely that approximately 8,000 have been killed. 
  • 21 million Afghan, Iraqi, Pakistani, and Syrian people are living as war refugees and internally displaced persons, in grossly inadequate conditions.
  • The US government is conducting counterterror activities in 80 countries, vastly expanding this war across the globe.
  • The wars have been accompanied by erosions in civil liberties and human rights at home and abroad.
  • The human and economic costs of these wars will continue for decades with some costs, such as the financial costs of US veterans’ care, not peaking until mid-century.
  • US government funding of reconstruction efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan has totaled over $199 billion. Most of those funds have gone towards arming security forces in both countries. Much of the money allocated to humanitarian relief and rebuilding civil society has been lost to fraud, waste, and abuse.
  • The cost of the Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria wars totals about $6.4 trillion. This does not include future interest costs on borrowing for the wars, which will add an estimated $8 trillion in the next 40 years.
  • The ripple effects on the US economy have also been significant, including job loss and interest rate increases.
  • Both Iraq and Afghanistan continue to rank extremely low in global studies of political freedom.
  • Women in Iraq and Afghanistan are excluded from political power and experience high rates of unemployment and war widowhood.

This is the behaviour of a disgusting denialist monster.

He's not trying to bring anything to the table - because, in smaller or larger measure, everything I'm posting is either genuine or at least, extremely well-referenced.

He and his puppet master are trying to poison discourse on this gathering Holocaust II with maybe WW3.

You're right that the Syrian dictatorship has been a problem but it was quite peaceful and prosperous until the Top Gear team went there in 2009. After that it went downhill because the Dictator Assad made a cackhanded attempt to suppress those who opposed his regime. A great shame because when Top Gear went there, they visited Palmyra which was gorgeous before the Islamic State nutters tried to destroy the ruins and Damascus was welcoming and peaceful. 

I doubt that the 'rebellion' had anything to do with Israel or the US.
