Wow, speaking of basic math!! You guys are both wrong, but Fleg is way off and wrong.If you have 160,000 troops and 2112 of them die, what is the death rate?Answer: 2112/160000 = .0132, = 1.32%.How many of them die per year?Answer: .0132 / 2.5 years = .00528.What does that mean per 100,000?Answer: .00528 * 100,000 = 528 per 100,000 per year.528 / 80 = 6.6 times more likely to die in Iraq.Cmon, Fleg.FC
