Is Gulf War II Surpassing World War II?
According to Agence France-Presse, it is:
On the other hand, if we count the occupation after regime change, World War II has lasted to the present.
THEY were America's days of infamy, 60 years apart - Pearl Harbour and September 11. The first led the US into World War II, a conflict it endured for 1348 days; the second was followed by a war that from tomorrow will have lasted even longer.
Even if we only count occupations when there is a terrorist campaign going on in the background, we kept troops in occupied Dixie for over a decade … and went back in during the 1950s to finish the job.
