7th of January, 2007

Mark off the day in your calendars. The significance? 1347 days since the 1st of May, 2003. The significance of that? On that day, the number of days after “the end of major comabt operations in Iraq” will equal the number of days the US was involved in World War II, from Pearl Harbor to V-J Day. I wonder if they will still be there.
