Comments: Why Do They Hate Us? Because They Do

In just a few more years the last people who actually lived through a real world war will be gone. Vietnam was just a minor fracas, and the Gulf and Iraq wars? Give me a break.

Someone blogged today about the battle of Verdun in WWI--about 400,000 men were killed on both sides in ten months or so. That's more men killed than our total troop deployment in Iraq.

My point is that we're fat, dumb and happy and spoiled; we don't have a clue what real hardship is like. We lost, on average, over 2,000 men killed a week during WWII. That's one 9/11 every ten days--for almost four years.

We better start thinking hard about the words of people like Brigitte Gabriel.
