Suppose that a gholam manages to kill 100 people a day, every day. That's 36,525 people a year, on average. Assume that now and then they take some time off for visiting their mother, and the six gholams together would kill about 200,000 people a year. That is a lot, but on the other hand, in a world war which kills somethings like 80% or more of the entire human population, it is not really remarkable.

So the gholam is really what it is meant to be: a specialised weapon aimed at a specific type of person.
