Auto accidents killed over 800 in the US last week. Seems to be slightly safer in Iraq.

oh...this argument again???

ok....spin right back at you.

Islamic terrorists killed 0 people in the United States in the past few years, but college students have killed at least 37.

Are we concerned about the actually number of deaths or are we looking for a trend? If the trend is downwards, its a positive step regardless of the numbers.

If human life is really that sacred to you, have you stopped using the automobile? Because they will kill ten times more people in the US than guns this year.

but the trend is not downwards, it's upwards.

and in Iraq, the trend would be about 100000% upwards from say....pre2003 levels.

this is a promising sign. Remember, Bush and Rumsfeld used to tell us that when the terrorists have to resort to these kinds of methods, it means that we are winning.

TSH, after 5 years in that **** hole, you should know by now that America doesn't give a S.HI.T about the Iraqi people. We want oil. We want power. We want land. And we want control.

If we cared at all about the Iraqi people, then we'd also have to care about the people in Chad, Darfur, most of W.Africa, N.Korea, ect...

Thanks to our strong counter terrorism efforts.

when haven't our counter terrorism efforts been strong when using the numbers like this? Seems we have never had an issue when it comes to terrorism seeing that we have far more car related deaths each year.

How about over 3000 dead on 9/11? How abt the 90's when al quada was striking us and everyone related at will? Seems like our CT boys and girls learned a few lessons and seems our mutual partners around the world, NOW get it and NOW cooperate with US.

or perhaps the terrorists realized it's much easier to kill the Americans right down the street? What....taken out about 4000 or so now? not that this number compares to car accidents though.

Soup. You're trying to make the case that Iraq and afghanistan are NOT safer now then months ago and before we went in. YOU ARE WRONG. I really don't care what else you try and compare, and YES, the Bush administration has done a superb job of defending the Homeland, something the Clintons had NO concept of.

Iraq IS NOT SAFER than it was before we went in.

snake (2/18/2008) The murder rate by Saddam and his henchmen are incalcuable.

incalculable.....as in "we don't do body counts"???? that kind of incalculable? Isn't that exactly why we don't know how many people have died as the result of the current war.........it's between 120,000 to 620,000, but we really don't know......why?....because it's incalculable.
