AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

I know the statistics - every war is different. The reasons for deaths in this war, for example: aren't all due to combat situations. They're in combat zones: but not necessary due to mechanics of war . . . heatstroke, for example, is quite common in the Middle East.
Thus: wars in the past were in different arenas - and had different factors behind the death statistics. So on: so forth.
We could also look at non-fatal casualty statistics as well: not all men, for example, are injured due to the mechanics of war. Like my husband. . . that was a pure lack of personal care.
Would this change? No - because overall less women are in the forces. It's just that simple.
If it was reversed and women far outnumbered men in the forces then, yes - the numbers would reverse.
Consider the number of male VS female nurses who were killed in WWII: male nurses were killed far less. . . purely because there were less of them.

The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

The Right wing continues it's selective appreciation of the word "war".
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
