    A bit shoddy considering the author of the website seems to be unaware even of the definition of genocide...He means murderers, not genocide.

    Manu has already displayed trouble grasping the definition of genocide when he declared that everyone has committed genocide on another thread. Of course his statement was incorrect so he tried to shove colonizations and oppression into the genocide definition in some attempt to stick to his statement rather than just admit he overstated.

    I did provide him the definition but he still seems to have trouble grasping it much like the person in the link he provided.

    BTW, I did look through the site. Its just as shoddy the rest of the way through as well.

    Yes, actually, it pretty much is really. Genocide is massacre designed to wipe out a race/culture/religion/etc. Not just mass killings. By the way...I highly doubt you actually want all of those to be classified as genocides. The US (and the international community in general) have an international obligation to act on a genocide...but not on mass killings. Which is, in part, why the definition is so specific and strict.

    Well I can't say I know enough about each of the atrocities to say whether every one is a genocide or not...but without doing a ton of research on each atrocity, I would say that the genocides are limited to Rwanda, Hitler, and Turkey...but again a lot of the atrocities I have insufficient knowledge to really say. But Iraq is definitely not a genocide, nor were the deaths during the Iran-Iraq war, Vietnam was not, nor was OBL's attack on the US.
