An Interesting Statistic

There have been an average of 160,000 troops stationed in Iraq during
the last 22 months.

During this time the firearm death total was 2,112 for a firearm death
rate of 60 per 100,000.

The firearm death 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.

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

There was another one that discovered that in January, there were more people killed in Detroit than Coalition deaths in Iraq.

Just makes you think.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington, D.C. I would like to second that motion!

Ok seriously. That statistic really does put things into perspective.
