#and here we see robert go to a whole other level of acting and leave everyone else in his wake

The man’s eyes contain worlds of emotion. WORLDS.

Ok here’s the thing, I don’t dispute the above, especially ref RDJ’s performance, but I have a point of order.

Steve has seen the kind of war Tony has only heard about. IDK about the US, but in the UK, every soldier KIA in Iraq, Afghanistan, their body gets flown home, they land at Wootton Bassett and they get a procession where they’re turned over to the families. Every individual death is mourned.

In the World Wars, in Steve’s war, that didn’t happen. It couldn’t because the casualties were so high, nothing else would have got done, they’d never have stopped. Bodies were often left where they fell because there was nothing else to be done.

Tony’s near tears because one man died. Steve would have personally seen hundreds, maybe thousands die (shot down, blown to bits, there’s nothing new about mortar fire). Who has a better understanding of warfare?

Modern soldiers have kevlar armour and idek what all else. WW2 soldiers mostly got a can to put on their head. Well, not counting the Russian soldiers, who often didn’t even get shoes.

Tony is a wealthy engineer. He’s a fighter, sure, but he doesn’t know jack about being a soldier, today or any other day. He’s seen modern warfare, sure, he’s played god with it too, as an arms manufacturer. He’s had a terrible experience, but that was a direct attack on him personally, not the indifferent mass destruction of the battlefields that Steve would have been part of. Steve is an experienced soldier, and it shows in this scene. A guy he knew a little died fighting, and that’s sad, but it’s also a day in ending in ‘y’ for him.

War is always terrible, and people suffer in it, but there isn’t a modern western conflict to compare with the sheer devastation of WW2.

World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history. Over 60 million people were killed, which was over 2.5% of the world population.

Classified US military documents released by WikiLeaks in October 2010, record Iraqi and Coalition military deaths between January 2004 and December 2009. The documents record 109,032 deaths broken down into “Civilian” (66,081 deaths), “Host Nation” (15,196 deaths),”Enemy” (23,984 deaths), and “Friendly” (3,771 deaths).

Those numbers may be difficult to wrap your head around, so let’s take the year that Iron Man was released, and Afghanistan since that’s where it was set. In 2008 there were 295 deaths of coalition soldiers in Afghanistan; estimates for civilian casualties are more varied, from somewhere around 1000 to 4000 that year.

To compare to the Second World War; the deadliest night of the Blitz in London was that of May 10/11 1941. On that night around 1,480 people were killed

One night. One city. 

Have you got your head wrapped around that number? 

Then let’s talk about the firebombing of Dresden. In a concerted series of raids from 13-15 February 1945, between 22,700 and 25,000 people were killed. 

Still just one city. 

Got your head wrapped around that number?

Then we can move on to the firebombing of Tokyo. On the night of 9/10 March 1945, the raids on Tokyo killed between 88,000 and 100,000 people.

One night. One city. 

Steve Rogers wouldn’t have been in any of those cities at those times. But sheer destructiveness of the war would have been all around him.
