    There's been a war with nobody dead, period.
    There's been several. The Pig War between the US and Canada. The First Cod War between the UK and Iceland (one person was killed in the Second Cod War; It's debatable whether he qualifies as a combatant). The Great Emu War between Australia and a load of emus. The Montenegro Japan war (1904-2006). The Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years War, between The Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly (1651-1986).

    Doubtless there are many more.
    None of those were shooting wars now were they? Iv'e been at war for close on 30 years with my wife's family, but there's never been any casualties of any kind either.

    Let's remember, the original statement indicated that we killed millions of civilians in Germany and because ISIS is worse, we should have plowed the East half of Syria, civilians and all. It was then noted that estimates of civilians killed in Germany by the military was about 500,000 and angelo has been shifting targets ever since, instead of simply admitting error.

    He's still wrong anyway.

    In his final report on the Emu War, Major Meredith claimed that his teams had expended 9,860 rounds of ammunition.

    He was issued 10,000 rounds by the defence department. Presumably he had 140 rounds left.

    I'm not aware of the other wars he mentioned but the last one on the list is what I had in mind when I posted that. It was a declared war.

    Khrist, what they were all wearing blindfolds and shooting s up at the sky hoping that the bullets falling back to earth would hit their enemies!
