Good comparison

Posted by an acquaintance on alt.music.chapel-hill:

Population of Washington, DC (just the city, not the metro area) in
2000: 572,000
Population of US Troops in Iraq: approx. 150,000

which gives us:

Fatalities per 10,000 population in DC since May 1: 1.15
Fatalities per 10,000 US Troop Population in Iraq since May 1: 3.47

Good comparison!

And let’s not even think about the Iraqi fatality rate.

Bring them home now!
