"Shia Sunni Wars have taken more lives than the Crusades?". Perhaps and Perhaps not !
Nobody kept a record over the ages of how many lives were lost those conflicts . Or for that matter no-body has kept a record of how many lives were lost in the Catholic-Protestant divide.

Two meticulously kept records talk of an ancient conflict has been kept:

1. The Aryavarta - Lanka conflict (fought between Hindus ) as described in the Ramayana
tens of millions lives and destroyed an entire nation with weapons of mass destruction.
This conflict initiated over a husband and wife dispute and a complex family inheritance problem
resulted in the total destruction of the peaceful country of Lanka (modern day Sri Lanka or Ceylon)
despite the fact that country and its people was not even remotely involved the problem in the first
place. There was a complete genocide of its entire ethnic population. Its cities, towns, and
temples were destroyed with weapons of mass destruction.Its ruler and ruling family were
murdered. The funny part is that Lanka was not even remotely involved in the family inheritance
dispute that caused Lord Rama to leave his home. On the other hand the Indian princes molested
the royal Lankan princess mutilating her face by cutting off her nose and subsequently Lord Rama's
wife Sita eloped with Lord Lankeshwar who was a devotee of Lord Shiva.
Both Lord Rama and Lord Lankeshwar were devout Hindus yet Lord Rama attacked and
annihilated a peaceful nation all because he could not get along with his wife.
The stark evidence of this genocide in Sri Lanka is evident today when not a
single archeological building from that era survives in Sri Lanka and the current population
are all immigrants from southern India.

2. The Mahabharta conflict fought between half brothers of the same Hindu ruling family resulted in the complete destruction of civilization as was then known. Four billion were killed due to weapons of mass destruction being used freely and the entire technological and industrial infrastructure built up over the last four thousand years was destroyed forever. The cause of the conflict was a gambling dispute and a polyandry issue with four princes sharing the same wife.

In comparison to the above the havoc on humanity wrought by Muslims (or any other faith by comparison ) has been far less.
