One big difference is that in WWII almost everyone in the country supported it and was directly or indirectly involved. Also, given the tight control of the media, the public got news that reinforced the criticality of winning and supported the sacrifices they needed to make in order for us to win. With the current war, none of that has happened. Most people in this country have made little if any change in their lives, most don't even know what is going on in the middle east and the news media is generally feeding a very negative, one sided view of the effort and acts like it really doesn't make any difference one way or the other if we win or lose.
