Number Crunching

On September 11th, 2001, a terrorist attack on American soil killed 2,974 civilians, which was roughly 0.001% of the US Population at the time.

On March 20th, 2003, the United States invaded and occupied the sovereign nation of Iraq. In the time since the invasion began, there have been 1,000,000 civilian casualties, which is roughly 4% of the Iraq Population at the time of invasion.

So, now that we have caused the deaths of 997,000 more of the people that didn't attack us on 9/11, can our troops come home now?
