You cannot compare the loss of lives of our very own as well as Iraqi with the numbers we lost in WWII; but if these men had not given their lives for us; we would not have had the freedom we enjoy today. Literally 10's of 1,000's of our own soldiers died in England, France, Normandy; noone wants their sons and daughters blood shed on any soil.
You're right. Clearly the only difference between the Iraq War and WWII is media coverage.
