that's actually not what this video shows.

 

what it does show is: 

a: survival and availability of written accounts in the language of the person who made this video.

b: the enthusiasm or lack theroff to research additional results.

 

For example it's quiet obvious this doesn't cover any serious sources from india,watched till 1000 A.D. and the only thing happeneing there is supposed to be Alexanders invasion which brings us to the point:

 

who ever made this had very narrow set of information, so narrow that one might ask wether he purpously ignored other easily available sources to create the impression you are having.

Except that China is vastly underrepresented during the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States periods.

Like... it doesn't even list the Battle of Maling with a reported 100.000 casualties, or the Battle of Yique with 240.000 reported casualties.

"There will never be peace in the Middle East"

 

Looking at this timelapse the quote holds more truth than I had considered, with 2500 years (+/-) of conflict..............wow. :amazed:

The impression I'm having is of those three main culprits at the end being perhaps the greatest creators of misery on the planet in modern times, call it a confirmation bias that reflects modern history.
