Are We Having Fun Yet?


Some creepy statistics:

From Lusitania sinking
To Armistice Day =

1284 days.

= World War I


From Pearl Harbor
To Japanese Surrender =

1365 days.

= World War II


From Fort Sumter
To Appomattox courthouse =

1458 days.

= U.S. Civil War


From Lexington and Concord
To British surrender at Yorktown =

2375 days.

= American Revolution


World War I + World War II =

2649 days.


From September 11, 2001 (bin Laden on the loose) =

2640 days,

= today

In nine days’ time, the time we’ve spent trying to “get” Osama bin Laden will be equal to the total time of America’s involvement in World Wars I and II COMBINED.

    That is a very scary thought!  I think this very succinct arithmetic shows how absurd this current war with no end is.
