Thought for the day


Recommended Posts

Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U.S. involvement in Iraq,

here's a sobering statistic.


There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theatre of

operations during the last 22 months and a total of 2,112 deaths. That

gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.


The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 persons for

the same period. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot

and killed in the U.S. capital than you are in Iraq.


Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.
