Below is the FBI's table of reported crimes in America covering the same period of time we have been in Iraq up to 2006;

Looking at the numbers and considering Americans are not fighting one another within our own borders, ask yourself just how bad is it going in Iraq.

Year 2003 Violent Crime 1,383,676/ Murder 16,528/ Rape 93,883/ Robbery 414,235/ Assault 859,030

2004 Violent Crime 1,360,088/ Murder 16,148/ Rape 95,089/ Robbery 401,470 / Assault 847,381

2005 Violent Crime 1,390,745/ Murder 16,740/ Rape 94,347/ Robbery 417,438 / Assault 862,220

2006 Violent Crime 1,417,745/ Murder 17,034/ Rape 92,455/ Robbery 447,403 / Assault 860,853
Total Violent Crimes 5,552,254 / Murders 66,450/ Rapes 375,774/ Robberies 1,680,546/ Assaults 3,429,484

Remember these are only reported number of cases in the US. For a variety of reasons there are a large number of rapes, robberies, murders and other violent crimes that never get reported. So is it really safer in America and are we really doing so bad in Iraq? In a supposedly war free safe America why do we have over 66 thousand Americans murdered, over 375 thousand reported rapes, over 1 1/2 million robberies and over 3 million assaults?

Just looking at the 2 situations I don't think we are doing all that bad in Iraq.

If you would like to see how bad it can get, read Final Conflict The Last American Journal of Eddie Johnson.

These are not statistics, but actual cases that have been reported to the FBI. Remember there are probably more since some deaths have been misdiagnosed, cause undetermined, or part of the 50k missing people their status unknown. For this reason, plus the fact that statistics can be used for or against any conversation, I will not rely on them. My point is simple American cities and towns are not in the middle of a war zone, Iraq is the combat area. If the war is really lost or going so bad shouldn't we see more American deaths than in our own country?

Interesting statistics. It's easy to see where the fodder for all those Law And Order TV shows comes from. On the other hand, the U.S. population is about thirteen times that of Iraq. How would these statistics normalize on a per-capita basis between the two countries?
