All wars and police actions are similar and should be used to determine just how violent the violence level is in Iraq. What else should we compare it too? The average number of soliders who die driving home from basic training? Okay, that was kind of a joke.
I think we’ll see a steady decline of soldier deaths in Iraq provided whoever is elected stays the course and finishes the job.
Huh…guess that one didn’t work out so well for you?
More people died on Chicago highways this month (and every month since the war started, actually) then died in Iraq.
AKA It’s safer in Iraq then in Chicago.
Guess that didn’t work out so well for you, did it?
this is pretty idiotic.
you are not comparing apples to apples here, but maybe grapes to pianos.
American troops in Iraq vs. number of motorists in Chicago? Relative densities of the same?
also i am not sure how comparing number of highway deaths in a city to number of killings in a middle eastern country is appropriate.
i think i am going crazy (rubs eyes). i used to think i was a rational person, but the fact that this kind of argument appears to be unrefuted hurts my head. Maybe i was better off when i only corrected Jen’s mis-information about my country and my religion.
