I certainly do not wish to disregard the fact that some of our best have paid the ultimate price in defending our nation, but contrary to some commentators the invasion has, so far, been a cakewalk. We've conquered over a third of the entire country, a major port and removed tens of thousands of enemy troops from combat for a handful of casualities. It could have been much worse and there's no guarantee that it will not be worse in the future. I think that Saddam always planned to lose handily in the south and if so, he would have prepared more dangerous strategems for the siege of Baghdad. We can only hope that our troops continue to perform well and don't get pushed into rushing by the nervous nellies who are not on the battlefield.
