Telling numbers

A veteran of the Korean War has, via his blog, done the stats:

The duration of America’s involvement in World War II in Europe - 3 years 6 months and 1 day
(Dec 7 1941 - May 8 1945)

In Japan - 3 years 9 months and 8 days
(Dec 7 1941 - Aug 15 1945)

The duration of the 2nd Iraqi War so far is 3 years 7 months and 1 day
(March 20 2003 - Oct 21 2006)

The length of time since Bush declared "mission accomplished": 3 years 5 months and 19 days
(May 2 2003 - Oct 21 2006)

As of October 23, for Americans, Iraqi War II was 1 month longer in duration than WW2 was in Europe.

By December 28 2006, the Iraqi war will be longer in duration than World War II in its entirety.

By February 8 2007, the time from "mission accomplished" will also be longer in duration than the entire World War II.
