Is the War in Iraq Really That Bad?

See January 28, 2007 Los Angeles Times article by David A. Bell at
■ “by the standards of past wars, the war against terrorism has so far inflicted a very small human cost on the United States.”

■ “Even if one counts our dead in Iraq and Afghanistan as casualties of the war against terrorism, which brings us to about 6,500, we should remember that roughly the same number of Americans die every two months in automobile accidents.”

■ “the war against terrorism has not yet been much of a war at all”

Oops! The title of the article was “Was 9/11 really that bad?” not “Is the War in Iraq Really That Bad?” However, the quotes from the article are accurate.
