Very similar to the logic the far left uses: 1900 soldiers have died in Iraq (over 3 years) vs how many people die on American highways every year.

Perspective is sorely lacking in the great unwashed's minds these days.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 42,636 people died in traffic accidents in 2004, or about 800 a week. More Americans die in three weeks of traffic accidents than have died in three years of the liberation of Iraq.
