Hidden Image One

Here's one of those hidden images I mentioned in my last posting.  Did you learn this in history?  Have you ever heard it before?
Over two times as many people were killed by their own government in the twentieth century than by war!  
In other words, these people were victims of their own military and therefore there is more than twice the chance you will be killed by your own military than an enemies military.  Yet there seems to be an irrational fear of an external enemy being promoted to the practical exclusion of fear from one's own government.  Has no one taken the time to do the math?  Are these numbers hidden in plain sight?
While our attention today is directed to external enemies, foreign nations who 'might' someday threaten us, we are now, in reality, subjects of real criminal activity here at home, having our pockets picked by the Federal Reserve in cahoots with our own Treasury to the point of having the House committee subpoenas Federal Reserve.  Along with the government taking over General Motors, and a cap and trade law in the works that Charles Homans of Washington Monthly says, "If it passes, it will mark the beginning of the most dramatic transformation of the domestic policy landscape since the passage of Social Security."
Consider the numbers produced by those who turn against and kill their own people:
".......both World Wars cost twenty-four million battle deaths. But from 1918 to 1953, the Soviet government executed, slaughtered, starved, beat or tortured to death, or otherwise killed 39,500,000 of its own people (my best estimate among figures ranging from a minimum of twenty million killed by Stalin to a total over the whole communist period of eighty-three million). For China under Mao Tse-tung, the communist government eliminated, as an average figure between estimates, 45,000,000 Chinese. The number killed for just these two nations is about 84,500,000 human beings, or a lethality of 252 percent more than both World Wars together." http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/WSJ.ART.HTM
