    No, the trench warfare in WW 1 was many time worse for conditions for the soldiers. Conditions today in March 2021 are not optimal, but most people can continue a semi-normal life even though very restricted. Nobody is shooting at or shelling people. There is no toxic chemical gases being released today.

    Considering what one has to imagine what trench warfare must be like? Your COD or MOH game isn't war. Who you kidding Troll-E?

    Comparing a bullet to the head or vitals if even if needs to get that close? You maybe dead. Is really a fair comparison or have you ever spoken to a veteran of the last, currently, great war? 

    War is Hell. Does that think different begs the QUESTION. What are you trying to sell? Like you. I may hide in the darkness, like you.

    Not really speaking from personal experience, but based on historic accounts I think one can objectively say that there is no comparison. In the WWI trenches it was living in a glorified sewer while awaiting offensives that could lead to horrific deaths or permanent physical maiming, not to mention mental/emotional trauma. The vast majority of us aren't experiencing anything nearly that bad.

    Well, COVID has already killed nearly 10x the number of Americans killed in WWI.

    Yes, having to wear a mask is definitely more horrifying than fighting in a war.
