    "To get an even better perspective on the gun violence in Chicago, we've taken a look at the number of homicides citywide, most of which are gun related. Put into context, it is true that the number of murders has declined significantly over the last 10 years, from a total of 761 in 1997 to 443 in 2007. "

    Pretty sad when Americans would rather cry afoul about the war in Iraq instead of cleaning up the mess they leave in their own backyard.

    He should probably pull out of LA and Philadelphia as well.

    Isn't Washington DC the murder capitol of the Country?

    I suppose this thread's an interesting way to diminish the damage done by Bush's War...

    whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    Just trying to point out that the damage done in Iraq isn't near as bad as certain groups (liberal, whack job anti war nuts) have made it out to be. Guess the Dem's war on poverty started by LBJ has turned out to be a failure and we should withdraw from the inner cities of America and leave them to their fate. That is the logic your kind is using.

    Negative Press is all it is. If you were to put together all of the crime/murders/shootings, etc... in our nation, I bet we'd have more deaths per year than in Iraq. The Texas border is just as dangerous as Iraq is at the moment.

    The Texas border is worse because of the drug wars going on there.

    Right ... because high crime areas are exactly the same as us invading and occupying a soverign state...

    sure thing.
