Attrition

Summary:

        We seem to be grinding them down in Iraq.

At Length:

        Much has been made, recently, of the fact that we've suffered more than two thousand dead in Iraq.  Why, that's more than U.S. deaths on June 6th, 1944!

        But my friend Frank forwarded to me a letter purporting to be from the father of a serviceman in Iraq (copy available on request from saintonge@hotmail.com).  Among other things, it estimated the deaths we've infliced on the terrorist enemy are estimated by the grunts on the ground at 40,000 -- 50,000.

        Assuming this is true, we are inflicting casualties at a rate of 20-1.  Our population is about 300,000,000.  Multiply by twenty, and you get 6,000,000,000, about the population of the world.  And the rest of the world isn't all Muslim.

        So the attrition ratio favors us, if we one the homefront have the balls to back our fighters.
