Casualties of War

By Michael Fumento

My colleague Chris Brown has a good piece at FrontPage Magazine comparing casualties in the Iraq war versus those of other American wars as well as putting terrorist casualties in proper perspective. We can all agree that in a very real sense, one American death is too many. But compared to previous military actions casualties from this war are incredibly(and thankfully)light. What would earlier generations of Americans think of suggestions that we cut and run from Iraq because we've incurred as many deaths over the last two years as we had during mere hours of Civil War battles?
