by that rationale D-Day was a CF that should be called off... with 2000 casualties just training for it.

not at all. D-Day was a one day operation and was needed to gain foothold into Europe. To comare D-Day to the time weve alredy been in Iraq is dumb

Yes, it would be more accurate to compare it to the Battle of the Bulge or the Pacific Theatre of WWII, or the Revolutionary War.

OTOH, just about nothing beats our Civil War for American casualties.
