War Deaths - Another Perspective

My hat is off and my heart goes goes out to our sons and daughters who have served and are serving our country in times of war. War is Hell, but look at how times have changed:

During the four-year American involvement on all fronts in World War II, the United States suffered 291,557 fatalities.

From February 2003 through last Sunday October 14, the United States suffered 3,828 total fatalities in the Iraq war.

Compare that to the 4,236 traffic fatalities just in the state of California in 2006 alone.
