President Joe Biden, during a press conference on Jan. 21, heinously claimed that "400,000 Americans have died [from COVID]. That's more than have died in all of World War II … This is a wartime undertaking."
First, the Department of Veterans Affairs reports 403,399 combat and non-combat deaths during World War II.
Secondly, since America's population in 1942 was 135 million, World War II's death toll was 300 deaths per 100,000 people.
Since the nation's population last year was 331 million, Biden's highly-inflated 400,000 COVID deaths converts to 121 deaths per l00,000 people.
Thirdly, as of Jan. 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 215,000 of America's 349,000 "Provisional COVID Deaths," or 62%, were 75 years of age or older.
The CDC also documents that only 3,000 COVID fatalities, or 1%, were Americans between 15 and 34 years old.
Furthermore, 94% of COVID decedents were suffering from at least one serious co-morbidity, including cancer, diabetes, obesity and pneumonia.
Thus, their lost life expectancies can be estimated at 1 million collective years.
By contrast, America's 403,399 honored World War II dead were almost entirely men in their 20s and early 30s, with more than a collective 20 million productive years of life lost.
An eloquent eulogy for the approximately 25 million Allied Uniformed Dead, from the epilogue of "A War To Be Won: Fighting The Second World War" (2000), by Williamson Murray and Allan R. Millett, two of America's leading military historians, demolishes Biden's abominable linkage:
"One cannot look across the long, seemingly endless rows of headstones that mark the military cemeteries throughout Europe and the Pacific or the great memorials and earthen mounds memorializing the dead of Eastern Europe without a sense of the terrible cost of victory in World War II. The cold stones underscore the brevity of those lives cut short in early adulthood – men who never again saw their families and homes …
"As the past recedes from memory and takes form on the printed page, historians and other commentators have begun to depict victory in that terrible conflict in soft words …
"In considering the war's human cost, those of us privileged to live at the dawn of a new millennium should renew our effort to remember why the war was fought and why so many were called to pay the ultimate price for victory.
"The wars unleashed by the Japanese in 1937 and by the Germans in 1939 came close to destroying the two great centers of world civilization and to imposing in their stead imperial regimes founded on racial superiority, slavery and genocide.
"They did not succeed because of the extraordinary efforts made by Allied soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines from around the world – Americans, Australians, Britons, Chinese, French, Indians, Poles. Russians, Ukrainians, and innumerable other nationalities."
Furthermore, 671,000 Americans were wounded during the bloodiest war in human history, and many injuries were extraordinarily severe, including blindness, loss of hearing or limbs and paralyzing neurological injuries.
During World War II, 40 million civilians were also killed; millions of young children were orphaned; many cities, factories, livestock and farmland were destroyed; tens of millions were rendered homeless; and the shattered countries in Europe and Asia required more than a decade to rebuild.
Their sustenance and reconstruction were financed mostly by America's taxpayers.
In addition to the stark dichotomy of the young cohorts of Americans killed in World War II, as compared to the elderly cohorts felled during the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic, there is a highly anomalous geographic disparity between these two, non-comparable national tragedies.
American soldiers, sailors, marines, pilots, and merchant mariners, who were killed in World War II, came from every city, town and rural area.
A colored, interactive map, on the website of usafacts.org, reveals that a highly disproportionate 133,000 COVID deaths occurred in just 46 counties in 10 of the nation's most-populous metropolitan areas.
On Jan. 27, the CDC reported 359,000 "Provisional COVID Deaths," so these 46 overwhelmingly Democratic-run counties account for a highly disproportionate 37%.
The 46 counties, or 1% of America's 3,200 counties, are located in these 10 metro regions: 18 in tristate New York City, four in Los Angeles, two in Phoenix, two in Chicago, three in Detroit, six in Boston, five in D.C.-Baltimore, three in Miami-Dade/Broward/Palm Beach, one in Houston and two in Dallas.
Except for Miami, these heavily-populated cities are governed by egregiously incompetent Democratic mayors, who bear a large share of the responsibility for the America's SARS-CoV-2 deaths.
The 11 counties with the most fatalities are:

In reality, the only link between America's SARS-CoV-2 epidemic and World War II is that thousands of veterans died in 2020, which was 75 years after the Germans and Japanese unconditionally surrendered, as a result of the fatally-flawed decisions, made mostly by Democratic mayors and governors, to transfer COVID-positive patients from hospitals into senior-citizen living facilities.
Americans 85 years of age and older account for 116,000 COVID deaths, and NBC News reported that in early December 2020 "at least 106,000 residents and staffers of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities" had died from the disease.
Finally, America's World War II veterans have been properly named "The Greatest Generation."
Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, Gavin Newsom, Phil Murphy, J.B. Pritzker, Tom Wolf, Bill de Blasio, Eric Garcetti, Lori Lightfoot, Sylvester Turner and Kate Gallego are among the notoriously inept Democrats of "The Lilliputian Generations."
