Bad Day For US Soldiers

BAGHDAD, Iraq (Dec. 21) -- An explosion tore through a soft-sided mess tent where U.S. soldiers were eating lunch Tuesday at a military base near the northern city of Mosul, blowing a hole in the ceiling and leaving the floor littered with trays of food and puddles of blood. Officials said at least 20 people were killed in one of the most devastating attacks against Americans in Iraq since the start of the war.

Damn nearly 80 people a day are murdered in the US. Bad day every day for those Americans also

The national crime rate has dropped to record lows in recent years but the number of homicides has been rising steadily. After reaching a low point in 1999 of about 15,500 homicides, the number crept up to more than 16,500 in 2003, or almost six murders for every 100,000 U.S. residents.

Now I am not saying I dont feel for the troops but they are a war. The fact is we have a war right here in our backyard

Number or troops killed the first year in Iraq 800 or 4.5 a day
number of citizens killed in the US last year 16,500 or 45.2 a day

Hummm where is it more dangerous??????

population in iraq is nowhere near as much as the population in the states, so if your going to use that argrument then you need to put things in relative perspective.

That is bullcrap because we are not at war here are we. Come on dont be so blind do the math. Percentages are percentages. No matter what you should be safer here!!!

But to prove your wrong 280,000,000 divided by 30,000,000 is 9.3
So the US is 9.3 time bigger than Iraq

So 16,500 citizens murdered divided by 9.3 is 1,774 murdered. Still over 2X more people murdered in the US than Iraq when you equal percentages

SO I OWN YOU !!!!

Next Topic please

Alex I will take US History for 500 !!!!! THE DAILY DOUBLE!!!!! MUAHHAHAHAHA

Your thinking is flawed. We're not counting all of Iraq in the stated murder statistics. Just the number of Americans killed. There are roughly 100,000 troops stationed in Iraq. 280,000,000 divided by 100,000 is 2,800. 16,500 murders divided by 2,800 is 5.89. Doesn't seem nearly as dangerous now, does it?

No if we were counting all murders in Iraq it would be different but we are not and that was not the point More Americans Die a year at home than at war and that is a sobering statistic.

No I am not flawed. Americans are numb to the murder rate in the US all the while the press zero's in on the damn war. Not to mention the 35,000 a year that die in auotmobile accidents or the 400 policemen that die each year in this country

My numbers were based on population of people in the country and nothing more

Well exactly what constitutes a citizen and a insurgent and where did those numbers come from. The enemy does not wears uniforms.

Ya most of them are stupid gangsters killin each other for guns, drugs, cars, & money. They are all in bad neighborhoods. In Iraq people are getting shot in the back all the time. Basically it is alot more avoidable over here.

Its far more Dangerous to be in Iraq right now than in the United States, you can't deny that.

But there are obvious reasons for that to.

The fact is we got problems here in America and our soldiers are dealing with problems in Iraq. People are going to be killed.

Corey were do you get these statistics from half the time, its like you have a personal life line to Alex Saycheck...

If the life expectancy is so bad here in the states of the good ole USA, why is we have men and woman living till the age of 101, and over in Iraq there likely life expectancy is normally at most 45-55, anything passed that is normally a miracle!

So I feel very bad for the men and woman over there in the US Military and wish them the best!

Dude who is talking about life expectancie. I am talking about murder.

As far as a life line to someone and my stats everything I post can be backed up an verified. I read, I am a Analyst. I research everything .

Most of my stats come from the US Bureau of stats compiled by the FBI and all the government agencies. Interesting thing is we have roughly 1,320 servicemen killed in Iraq but of that only 980 were killed in combat. We have lost quite a few to accidents which is nothing new. The US military has almost 300 accidental deaths a year when we are not at war from training accidents. Helicopter crashes, accidental weapons discharge, malfunction equipment, Being swept overboard in rough seas, and other training exercises.

When it is all said and done this war will have the fewest casualties than any war of this scope ever in the history of war PERIOD. Just to put things in perspective. In WWII The attack on Tarawa Island, for example, cost the United States Marines 3000 casualties in three days. Other names like Iwo Jima, Saipan, Tinian, Guam, and Okinawa were other well-known battles. At Iwo Jima, American forces suffered 5,000 men killed and 15,000 wounded in one month of fighting for control of the island. These islands were tiny little islands the size of a postage stamp in the pacific ocean. June 6 1944 D Day 6000 american troops died on the beaches of Normandy.
