NEVER in history has a conflict of this magnitude had so FEW casualties.
More murders will occur here than soldiers killed this year...
Where is the moral outcry for those innocent victims?

the moral outcry over murder in the USA? You don't see people saying, "Well, these people need to be murdered in the USA because
of WMDs" I think there is more
of an outcry for innocent victims of murder in the USA, than soldiers in Iraq. The news would rather cover the
former, not the latter.
How can you compare casualty numbers with past conflicts? Did we have tanks in the Civil War? Smart bombs in WWII? Was our medicine as advanced as it
was in Korea or Vietnam? If anything, with all of the improvements our military has made over the past 200 years, in weapons and battlefield medicine,
these causality numbers show a gross incompetence by our leaders.
Also, we really don't know how many ware being killed in Iraq. If a soldier gets shot in Iraq, but dies at a hospital somewhere else, he's not
considered a combat death. I wonder if they consider that, say, a German death if he died in Germany? Wow, I bet the mortality rates of our soldiers
in Germany or Kuwait have shot up, and probably makes those countries at least as deadly as Iraq.
