    A pretty good pro-gun argument

    If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in
    theater in Iraq during the last 22 months, that gives a firearm death
    rate of 60 per 100,000. The rate in DC is 80.6 per 100,000. This means
    that you are 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

    Been around a while that one but - it does make a point! Sadly tho in the sand box it ain't just guns the boys are facing - have to add in the lunatic fringe with suicide bombs, and the ubiquitous but ever lethal RPG's.
