We're Not Losers:

Right. We're NOT Losers... It's the War We Hate:

Jonah Goldberg wrote this article for the NRO in early December. I was just reading it again and realized how vital this information really is:

"The number of U.S. military deaths in Iraq remains below one percent of our WWII losses."

So why is it sooo important to point out that we've "drug this quagmire" out for 1,347 days?

Jonah answers:

"When people invoke the WWII analogy, what they really mean is that we've been in Iraq too long. Fair enough. But it's not clear that the chorus of tsk-tskers appreciate the implications of their complaint."

True. And as he points out:

"...you don't hear many people complaining that we still have troops in Japan and Germany more than 20,000 days later."

Hmmm... Something to think about, isn't it?
