umm the death toll for WWII was well over 40 million in 6 years (including Civilians and that 5-6 Million were just jews in camps and that)

the war on terror has been going on for what 7 years and is still well away from a million

I was speaking of poeple that Sadam exterminated.

I just finished reading book by one of the top Marine snipers. One of the more interesting stories was of how the Marines had to keep the Iraqi people from getting rid of the "human shields" (remember them? I think a lot changed their minds when they heard the jokes about one-way plane tickets) that went of there to try "stop the war". The Iraqis thought they were trying to make the Marines stop their liberation.

I can't believe an adult can utter such an ignorant phrase. Either you haven't paid attention, or you haven't spent the time reading or researching the conflict. And I don't mean watching The History Channel. The mechanations that ultimately resulted in the US involvement in the war are both exhaustive and riveting. To believe that we had no hand in our entrance, other than that of prostrated victim, is absurd. That we were drawn into the conflict was advantageous...to us, and many others.

2 distinct wars with 2 very different causes.

No Global Economies to tend with either, No millions of People Being Exterminated, No shortage of Resources, No crazy man trying to take over the world (the extremist only hate United States)
I think you are incorrect. The extremist do want to take over the world and set up an Islamic government, like they had in Afghanistan, sharia rule . They also hate Israel, and anyone else who does not believe the same way they do.
They believe you are to convert or die.
