I’ve hidden this video, The Killing Rooms Of Mosul Are Filled With Bodies And Mystery, after the jump. It is an EXTREMELY graphic video made in the aftermath of the occupation and eradication of ISIS in Mosul. It pulls no punches in imagery. You have been warned.

The number of soldiers who died between 1861 and 1865, generally estimated at 620,000, is approximately equal to the total of American fatalities in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean War, combined. The Civil War’s rate of death, its incidence in comparison with the size of the American population, was six times that of World War II. A similar rate, about two percent, in the United States today would mean six million fatalities. Death and Dying–Civil War Era
So let’s keep this current argument thoughtful and polite, right? Right.
