    Such appreciation

    Well the last 68 years of the US protecting them and having to pay for bases that we use to protect them aside.

    A study done by Adm. Nimitz's staff in May estimated 49,000 U.S casualties in the first 30 days, including 5,000 at sea.[44] A study done by General MacArthur's staff in June estimated 23,000 US casualties in the first 30 days and 125,000 after 120 days.[45] When these figures were questioned by General Marshall, MacArthur submitted a revised estimate of 105,000,[/B][/B] in part by deducting wounded men able to return to duty.


    Gee, maybe we should charge $14.27 per US casualty to take their islands back from the Japanese and call it even.
