More Military Deaths In Four Years Of Clinton Administration Than Iraq War

All deaths are tragic but particularly so the deaths of America's military personnel. The media has an obsession with each death but their purpose is to embarrass president Bush. To put things in perspective, please see the following link from Rush Limbaugh's web site based on an article from Alicia Colon in the New York Sun.

“The total military dead in the Iraq war between 2003 and this month stands at about 3,133."

The Clinton years:
"1,245 in 1993; 1,109 in 1994; 1,055 in 1995; 1,008 in 1996. That's 4,417 deaths in peacetime..."

The Carter years:
" will find that in 1980, which was the last year of the Carter administration, there were far more military deaths in 1980 than in any year of the Bush administration."

Remember, statistics or numbers have no value unless there is a unit of measurement or a comparison of data or both. We learn this in the first month of the first semester of statistics. Too bad members of the media were taking journalism classes while some of us took math and science classes. Such coursework also explains the global warming hysteria.
