    Talking A Sobering Thought

    This came to me via email from the Embassy Military Police Detachment:

    "Do you think we can use this email to try and get our threat level raised this way we could make more money, LOL "

    A Sobering Thought...

    Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U.S. involvement
    in Iraq, here's a sobering statistic:

    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.

    Meanwhile, 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...

    Makes sense to me.

    Looks like the math is right to me. Please explain what is wrong with the math.
