?> days ago and Osama bin Laden is still a free man.

Just for historical contrast, it took 1365 days from the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the end of World War II. Food for thought? Sure. Time for Porter Goss, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush to get to work!

Stop conflating Iraq with 9/11! Stop confusing Iraq with the war on terror! Bring Osama to justice and stop Al Qaeda!

UPDATE: Here’s the php script for those of you who want to do something similar on your own site:

< ?
function days_elapsed($time /* feel free to use mktime() to generate a timestamp*/)
{
if (!(is_int($time) && strlen($time) == 11))
{ // Let's say this is an unneeded feature.
$time = strtotime($time);
}
$diff_date = time() - $time;
$more_than_year = date('Y', $diff_date) - 1970; // Hack for non negative timestamps.
$years = ($more_than_year >= 0) ? $more_than_year : '';
return $years * 365 + date('z', $diff_date);
}


echo 'September 11, 2001 was '.days_elapsed('11 Sep 2001') . "\n";
?>
