Sobering statistic

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 60,000 troops in the Iraq theatre of operations during the last 22months, and a total of 2,867 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 DC .*

*They already have they just commute in every day.
