On August 15, 2006 21:30 EST the United States will have been at war in Iraq longer than it was at war with Germany in World War II.

wow this surprised me... glad we have not lost as many troops in that same time span.

nAZ,

This is amazing to me as well. Since I was not here, I don't know but guess that WWII seemed much longer as many more families were effected and people here were much more involved in that war effort.

I'm trying to decode that sentence...where does the comma go?
WWII was in fact, a "war on drugs". Both the Japanese and the German armies were supplied amphetamins...Hitler himself, was injected with meth, five times a day. (History channel program, from last week)
And since this era was a time when there was little world travel, and far less immigrants....it was hard for our troops to distinguish between our Chinese allies, and the hated Japanese enemies (this was before they invented the Walkman).
The DOD put out this handy little booklet to help out:

Pills for the troops (I think our guys got them too.). OTOH: Allegedly, JF Kennedy was getting regular injections of amphetamines from a certain Dr. Feel Good during the entire Cuban Missile Crisis. Bobby K got hold of one of the empty syringes and had the leavings analyzed. Or so the story goes.

Scary thought huh? JFK zorked on METH while he played nuclear brinksmanship with Krushev.



"Both Adolf Hitler and John F. Kennedy had “Dr. Feelgoods” who injected them with methamphetamine daily. Dr. Theodor Morell was Hitler’s psychiatric physician and constant companion, just as Dr. Max Jacobson was always present to serve as Kennedy’s pharmaceutical nursemaid. Both doctors supplemented the stimulant regimen with downers to moderate the manic effects of speed. It has been observed that Hitler’s mania for annihilating the Jews developed in intensity during the period of Morell’s influence.

Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap

Hitler’s allies, the Japanese, were also tweaking freely throughout the second world war, as the Imperial government doled out speed to the military and civilian populace alike, to keep up the “war effort.” The Rape of Nanking, a horrific war crime perpetrated by Japanese soldiers against no fewer than 369,366 Chinese men, women and children during 1937-38, was a murderous orgy that continued for months, during which the Japanese troops raped no less than 80,000 women of all ages. Reliable historical reports indicate that the Japanese killed many millions of Chinese during the second world war, although this Sino-Japanese holocaust has received little attention or commemoration. This type of lethal productivity has the feel of a meth-fueled murder nightmare. The suicide pilots of the Japanese air force were given amphetamines to overcome the desire to survive."

Wolfdancer I had posted before about living in Watervliet,NY home of the first US Arsenal. We were serenaded by the sounds of machine guns and cannons being tested night and day. The air raid wardens cautioning people, I can see light from your house close those curtains. Pull down your black blinds okay that is better.

Of course everyone had food stamps and meat tokens. ####
