17. I must be missing something here...
The argument seems to be that since the mortality rate for crime or bad driving or influenza is higher than that of our troops in Iraq, those deaths aren't really significant.
:wtf: :puke:
Does this mean they're not quite as dead?

Or do they mean that death stateside caused by crime, bad driving, or illness somehow supersedes death in Iraq caused by an IEDs or snipers?

What about troop fatalities in Iraq caused by crime, bad driving, or illness?
Do those count more? or less? :sarcasm::
