Throughout history the United States government have taken actions that resulted in a great number of deaths. The photos above are of the Wounded Knee Massacre, the atomic bombs used during World War II, and the Gulf War. These three events are just a few of many events in history that shows how the United States government have made certain decisions that killed many.
In the event of the Wounded Knee Massacre, soldiers intercepted 350 Native Americans of the Lakota nation, and escorted them to Wounded Knee Creek, and killed them. Towards the end of World War II, President Truman ordered the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan killing over 200,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then in 1991, the US initiated Operation Desert Storm, and drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait, and this event resulted in tens of thousands deaths of Iraqis and deaths of 184 Americans.
