Thought for the day:

If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the
Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, that gives a
firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.

The firearm death 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.

Gun control = hitting target

There are two more conclusions that can be made:

1. USA should use criminals instead of soldiers in Iraq.
2. Avoiding americans is a good thing.

Hrm...come to think of it, a lot of criminals made up the first colonists in the US, and we set up a pretty good democracy!
