USA death toll in Iraq is now 2,000 and counting. However, our leaders have said that 9/11 was the "earl Harbor" of our day. In World War 2, while the world lost 55 million people, America lost 400,000 soldiers. So the American adventure into the oil lands has 398,000 deaths to before 9/11 really equals the beginning of a WW2-sized conflict. One difference between Pearl Harbor and 9/11 is that Pearl Harbor occured after years of American non-involvement in WW2. WW2 began when Germany annexed Austria in 1938. So it was 3 or 4 years before America could mobilize itself to enter WW2, and we're only now 2.5 years into Iraq. 2,000 Americans dead, and we're just getting started.
