On 1 July 1916, the opening day of the battle of the Somme, Total Allied casualties were 57,470, of which 19,240 were fatal. The battle lasted until November of that year with over 600,000 casualties on both sides. The 24/7 "news" outlets are suggesting that the 9 casualties sustained today by the IDF are "horrendous" and that Israel should agree to a "cease fire" to allow the "Army of God" (hezbollah) to resupply and reorganize. And these are not even the French!
