Yes, this is the war of my generation. However, I ask you, how many troops died in vietnam? how many troops died in ww2? ww1? civil? korean?

1,700? Sounds like a pretty slim number. (not slim to the parents and spouses of the 1700) but in comparison, pretty small.

And don't give me some bs about "you're not in the military, you don't know what's up"... Yes I do. I've been in... 6 years. I've done mine. Honorable Discharge... I've been there and done that.

Thank you for your service sir! I didn't know you had served.

And your dead on here. Dunno the figures for WW1 or 2 but the figures for the Civil War was something around 600,000. Single battles like Antietam, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor killed tens of thousands. Even back then there were those who wanted to sue for peace. They even had a Presidential Candidate rallying for the cause of Peace. His name was General George B McClellan former commanding General of the Army of the Potomac(that's a Union army for those of you who are historically challenged). He was a Democrat. He lost.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I dubbed Kerry "General McClellan" all through the last election. Only difference was General McClellan had seen alittle REAL combat.
