image for Shooting Statistics -- Washington vs Iraq
Disturbing trend

WASHINGTON D.C. (Statistic Institute) -- Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U.S. involvement in Iraq, there is one sobering statistic we can't escape.

There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theatre of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths.

That gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers per month.

The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 persons for the same period.

That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. Capital than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.

Make ChillerBaggins's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
