«I just realized something. America's two biggest wars began in xxx1 and ended in xxx5. WW2 ran from Dec. 7, 1941 to Aug. 15, 1945, and the Civil War ran from April 12, 1861 to June 23, 1865, so shouldn't our current War on Terror (Sept. 11, 2001-?) be wrapping up shortly?
According to my calculations, the War on Terror will become longer than World War II on May 16, 2005, and longer than the Civil War on Nov. 22, 2005. In fact, as of January 29, Osama Bin Laden has officially outlasted Hitler (Dec. 11, 1941-April 30, 1945) at surviving the full onslaught of American wrath. »
