As Stalin said one death is a tragedy, 10,000 dead is a statistic. It is irelevant at this late date to quable over a number of deaths over 50 years ago. Russia had over 20,000,000 killed in the second world war, if to-day the statistics will show that only 18,000,000 died will it make any diffrence. War should be abolished but as long as humans enhabit this planet there will always be wars somewhere. The only thing is that with millions of lives lost and destroyed by war, 100 year into the future these wars and their consequences become irrelevent and all those lost and suffering lives could have been avoided.
