Obama's Wars

You write "US casualties are far fewer than in traffic accidents on American streets." That is not a new condition. US casualties have ALWAYS been far fewer than traffic accidents on American streets.

According to icasualties today, there were 4221 confirmed US deaths in Iraq since the beginning of the war in 2003. According to the US Dept of Transportation, US traffic fatalities were

2007 41,059//

2006 42,708//

2005 43,510

2004 42,836//

2003 42,884

The way I read that more Americans have died about every five weeks on the highways than have been lost in five years of war in Iraq.

Not a slam, but in a column as data heavy as that article, it could be misleading.
