Well, I guess that depends on how you define "a lot." I think it's "a lot" compared to the deaths of other forces, "a lot" compared to the number I would liked killed, but "a little" compared to the total number of human beings on the planet.Steve_Kow said:

If you want to state casualties ... then you need to add the 13,189 wounded to the 1943 coalition dead.Ranger14 said:It is a war and 2.3 casualties a day. That doesn't seem drastic at all to me. Any loss of life isn't good, but it certainly isn't an overly large fatality rate.
I'm so glad to hear that. Why, everybody knows that Iraq is now a war zone ... so lets simply write off those Iraqi civilian casualties as mere "collateral damage". There's absolutely no need to consider that Iraqis didn't start the war or ask for their homes or businesses to be destroyed ... those are just more mere details. Ya, that's the ticket. Call it a "war zone" and the death, destruction, and mayhem now seem less important.Ranger14 said:As to comparing loss of life in a war zone to a peaceful London area...well, I won't even go there...
Good pics, Ill, despite the obvious propaganda intent. We need to realize just what sacrifices we'd be spitting upon if we retreat now.llad12 said:
