Sad fact

If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq Theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.

The firearms death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000.

That means that you are about 25% 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.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington D.C.

  1. I’m quite sure I read that the first statistics regarding Washington, DC & Iraq was faulty, but can’t find the link anymore. Besides, many of the deaths in Iraq are probably caused by IEDs and not firearms.

  3. Actually the crime rate in india is very low… esp if u consider the ones which are reported… and divide it with a billion population. so i doubt if we can reach the same outcome…..

    for the iraq we could draw the same conclusion… because US lost hardly any soldiers… during the war they were so bored that the Americans started shooting each other (1/3 of the initial casualties were due to friendly fire)
