Hanson Musing on Pearl Harbor Day

Victor Davis Hanson's article this week is well written, however the portions that should realy cause you to think are the descriptive stats.

Like these:

Pearl Harbor Dead: 2403
September 11 Dead: Almost 3000

4 Years after Pear Harbor: War Over
6 years after September 11: No end in sight

Average # of American Soldiers killed per month WWII: 8000
Average # of American Soldiers killed per month GWOT: 50

Total # American Soldiers killed in WWII: 400,000+
Total # American Soldiers killed in GWOT: Less than 1/100th of that number.

Here is the article.

Here's one more little morsel for comparison for you:

4,900 Americans killed in one day at Normandy, June 6, 1944.

I am convinced that war could not have been fought with today's American society.
