"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..

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
