if we're talking about excess mortality it's really obscene to compare it to warfare IMO

actually it really is a bit off to claim Greeks are worse off than Iraqis when they're actually better off than Macedonians

I agree. But I would also guess it doesn't really feel much like being subjected to carpet bombing
