The U.S. military suffered 16 deaths in Iraq in January. Of those, 12 were from accidents. By comparison, the Rochester murder rate for a recent year was 58 among 218,000 residents. Thus, if the 152,000 U.S. troops now in Iraq were living near me, we'd expect them to suffer 3.4 murders a month, barely lower than the 4 combat deaths last month.
