Arms -- Washington D.C. & Iraq

According to http://www.casualties.org <http://www.casualties.org/> , there have been 88 hostile fire deaths caused by firearms since the beginning of hostilities in Iraq. The remainder of coalition deaths have been due to explosives or accidents.

What does this mean? If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater during the last 22 months, that gives a firearm death rate of 55 per 100,000.

The rate in Washington DC is 80.6 per 100,000. That means that you are more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, (which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation) than you are in Iraq.

The conclusion?

We should immediately pull out of WASHINGTON, DC
