    There have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater (IRAQ) during the
    last 22 months, which has a firearm death rate of *60* per *100,000*.

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

    That means that you are 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.

    I've seen this before.

    There is also the fact that there were more people shot in Detroit in one of the months than in Iraq.

    If we pulled out of DC wouldn't that be concidered premature evacuation?

    Whats the death rate in DC for law-abiding, non-drug using Americans just going about their daily lives?

    Whats the death rate for soldiers in Iraq?

    Those are the numbers that need to be compared.

    The current death rate in Iraq is growing, again.

    http://cryptome.org/mil-dead-iqw.htm

    This also does not address the amount of wounded that we suffer from Iraq, which is far greater than the number of dead.

    If we did not have the body armor that we have, our death rate would be much much higer.

    The DC rate doesn't include injuries either.

    The soldiers in Iraq are wearing body armor, none of the gang bangers in DC are.

    If the DC gangbangers wore the same body armor, the death rate their would be very low.

    If the terrorists knew how to shoot, they would be even higher as well. I talked with some people who where in Iraq and he said that the best that many of them can do is spray bullets in the general direction of them.

    Actually the Federal government always seemed like a good place for an evacuation.
