Survival School and a coded message for all of us

The picture shows that this soldier has been thru Survival School and learned his lessons well. He's giving the sign of "coercion" with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW's as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into s haking hands with Hillary Clinton. It's ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo---perhaps because she's never understood our military to begin with.

If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.

The rate in Washington D.C. Is 80.6 per 100,000.

That means th at you are about 25% 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

It seems that something is amiss.

For U.S. soldiers in Iraq you show a 22-month death rate of 2,112, therefore the calculation is:

(2,112 / 160,000 * 100,000) = 1,320

The correct comparison is 1,320 soldiers deaths per 100,000 versus 80.6 D.C. murders per 100,000.

This means that 16.4 times more U.S. citizens (soldiers in Iraq) were killed than in D.C. over the 22-month period.

I forwarded that message to Dennis as it was forwarded to me. I neglected to fact check the data and apologize for not doing so.
Misinformation was not my intent.
