Have you heard this? A man called C-span yesterday and asserted that in the time when we have lost 1800 soldiers in the Middle East war on terror 30,000 Americans have been murdered in America. To some extent, then, isn't the incessant attention to low war casualties a wag-the-dog dodge to avoid covering the dismal failure of liberal democratic policies in American cities?
I find the liberals' constant citing of war casualties to be extremely juvenile. After WWII, we were still fighting insurgents for four years after the supposed end of the war, costing literally thousands of American lives. It would be like claiming back then that we actually lost WWII because we were still taking casualties.
Having said that, we're at the beginning of a war in Iraq, not the end.
