According to the US' own statistics, it seems your numbers are a bit low...

Also might want to add the many, many deaths of slaves in the US.'

Cuban figures also seem low, given just the Levantamiento Armado de los Independientes de Color (known by Americans, to this day, as the 'Negro Rebellion in the best possible demonstration of their ongoing racism) killed thousands, with the massive slaughters by the propped-up banana republic continuing for decades.

I'd get into the intervention in the Yugoslav wars, but fuck if those are complicated.

More USA backed dictators for you! CIA assisted in bringing Hissene Habre with arms and training. Habre, dictator of Chad, then went on to kill 40k and torture 200k people.

I was looking into the slavery statistics and literally all I found was forum posts of 'but the Irish' and 'slavery was worse on the islands' apologia. God damn.

maybe Puerto Rico should be on the list too for Hurricane Maria and the US's total neglect.

Might as well add Hurricane Katrina too. That was a failure to care as well.

How about 911? CIA turned a blind eye as part of their plan to give Bush a reason to invade Iraq.

Eh, I feel like going into stretches like that makes the list worth a bit less.
