Musings 99--All about the numbers

Figures don't lie, but lairs sure least that is what I have always believed. Keep this in mind as I present the following numbers.

2,222--The number of U.S. soldiers killed since the start of the war on of January 18, 2006.

16,420--The number of soldiers wounded since the start of the war on terrorism.

8 to 10 per cent of nearly 12,000 soldiers from the war on terror treated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany had "psychiatric or behavioral health issues." (See Link)

28,069 - 31,651--The number of estimated dead Iraqi's since the war began.

8--The number of years between the two bombings of the twin towers in New York City.

4--The number of years since 9-11-2001.

4--The number of years yet to go before we equal the time between the two twin tower bombing. Also, this was without a Homeland Security Agency in place. Thus, when the Bushies take credit for making us safer, we should consider the bad guys time frames of the past. Maybe we aren't safer...ask me again after the 8th year.
