Re: Between thirty and thirty-five million dead in the Eugenics Wars

I never thought the Eugenics Wars in the books were "secret/covert" conflicts. What about when the Palaise De Nations is gassed, resulting in the deaths of several hundred ambassadors, staff and civilians? There's no way that could be covered up. And, of course, the populace of India is fully aware of who Khan is and how much power he has over them.
It's not so much that it's "secret" per se as it's based on the idea that the West -- and mostly Americans -- is too ethnocentric and self-involved to recognize the conflicts going on around them, or to piece together the clues to realize that the Augments exist and what role they're all playing.
