Nobody keeps track of the wars that were prevented and never happened and cost no lives, and therefore, are not counted in the books as “wars.”
Sort of like all the people walking down the street who don’t suddenly randomly murder the person walking by them.
It is not coincidental that only wingnuts keep track of the death counts in various wars as if it was fantasy football.
And say "this war" has just a tiny fraction of the deaths in "this war."
As if that's a selling point.
