    "Shooting Statistics"

    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 per month. 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!!!
