extermination by starvation is nothing new

Ireland had net EXPORTS of food during the famine.

It was the policies of the British that lead to the the famine -not the failure of the potato. But just look at the mind set - the Irish were thought to be neanderthals, second class(or third or fourth) citizens. So not only do you get to plunder them - you get to rid them from the earth.

I am quite sure Stalin did the same.
