Re: We should pull out NOW!
Although it's a funny chain e-mail it's completely inaccurate and even if the numbers were correct it still is not a fair comparison for many reasons.
I could start by pointing out that the murder rate in DC is closer to 32/ 100K (181 homicides in 2007, 580K population) and that closer to 4500 US soldiers have died in Iraq (w/ another 60K or so maimed), as well as closer to 800K Iraqis and a few soldiers from other nations as well (admittedly over a multi year period) but either way, a war death rate statistic has nothing to do w/ what occurs in a crime ridden impoverished inner city.
In no way am I endorsing a specific set of gun laws I'm just trying to point out how, as always, these chain e-mail messages we all receive arrive w/ an agenda purportedly supported by 'facts' to attempt to 'prove' their point but the facts are usually out right lies meant to decieve.
I also would like to add that I'm use to this sort of unsubstantiated propaganda being propogated by many of the forum members, but not from Blowby. WTH? Humor I guess.
