Should we pull out?

"If you consider that there has been an
average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the past
22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60
per 100,000 soldiers.
The firearm death rate
in Washington, DC is 806 per 100,000 for the same period.

That means you are about 25 per cent more
likely to be shot and killed in the UScapital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in
the US, than you are in Iraq.
Should the US pull out of Washington D.C.?

  • I agree with sweet, we should pull out of  D.C..


    I will give sweet something else to think about,


    70 million people were killed during WW ll, half that number were civilians.


    The U.S.A. was losing over 12,000 solders, sailors, and marines a month, 415,000 all together in 4 years..

  • Hi Everyone,

    We've removed several answers from this question, and wanted to explain why.

    We'd like Answers to be a place where everyone feels comfortable asking and answering questions. Ideally, when a mom posts a question in Answers, she'll get responses from other moms that address the question she's asking.

    While debates around hot topics are welcomed and encouraged, personal attacks are not. We want everyone to feel comfortable debating their point of view about any topic without being personally attacked for their beliefs.

    With that in mind, we have removed several answers from this question because they were personally attacking other members instead of discussing the original post.

  • Yes we should pull out. There is no reason to be there and the situation will never be stable

  • Can I ask what is the civilian death in Iraq? and aren't we slowly pulling out of Iraq now? so this is a calmer period....then say 3 years ago, 4..etc...


    Comparing the SOLDIERS to civilians in DC is inaccurate...comparing maybe the POLICE to the soldiers and the CITIZENS to the CIVILIANS would be a better comparison
