Are We Having Fun Yet?

silent-witnesses

Some creepy statistics:

From Lusitania sinking
To Armistice Day =

1284 days.

= World War I

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»

From Pearl Harbor
To Japanese Surrender =

1365 days.

= World War II

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»

From Fort Sumter
To Appomattox courthouse =

1458 days.

= U.S. Civil War

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»

From Lexington and Concord
To British surrender at Yorktown =

2375 days.

= American Revolution

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»

World War I + World War II =

2649 days.

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»

From September 11, 2001 (bin Laden on the loose) =

2640 days,

= today

In nine days’ time, the time we’ve spent trying to “get” Osama bin Laden will be equal to the total time of America’s involvement in World Wars I and II COMBINED.

Courage.

    The calendar calculations contain two large errors:

    1) Not counting the time the US avoided getting involved in Worlds War I and II. Yes, the time the US was involved were counted, but how much sooner would those wars have ended (and in World War II, how many jews would have survived) if the US had gotten involved sooner than by trying to avoid it?

    2) The search for Osama bin Laden should have begun (and actually was begun, by Clinton) in February 1993 with the attack on the World Trade Centres. The US has actually failed to capture or kill him for nearly 16 years, longer than the actual length of both Worlds War I and II combined.

  2. That’s nothing. They’ve been looking for Whitey Bulger for twice that time. Maybe they’re together.

  3. how much sooner would those wars have ended (and in World War II, how many jews would have survived) if the US had gotten involved sooner than by trying to avoid it? ” – T. Trimper

    Yes, but that would have reduced IBM’s profits selling the system that kept track of the final solution, and Ford’s (or was it GM?) sale of engines to be put in Panzer tanks. Not to mention Prescott Bush’s banking business.

    You’d think that sooner or later all these profit-driven scandals would damage the American business community PR-wise, but the public seems happy to ignore them.
