So Mao killing 45 million of his own people counts for nothing then?

USA=China? No way. The USA has been involved in way more wars recently. China is quietly building up for the big one.

@Andrew: That`s because it`s an Index, not just a violence per capita ranking. You can see the individual parts that make up the index if you click on Specify Indicator on the right. You`ll see that one of the parts in the index is Nuclear and Heavy Weapons. That immediately bumps the USA and Russia up further than a lot of countries. Another one that pushes the USA and Russia up high is weapons exports.

Major bullship - the fact that Russia and Syria are ranked almost the same makes this functionally useless. You have to have weird methodology to put them at about the same rank. Syria has had the same amount of deaths as the Iraq war in 2 years.

Interesting, and yet useless at the same time!
(some of their criteria are... odd!)

But facts are fun! Thx @Tekinette!
