U.S. Life Expectancy Skyrockets, Iraqi Plummets

A government report released this week noted that the average life expectancy for Americans reached an all-time high, at 77.6 years. Buried deep in the report, and much less publicized, is the fact that in the last two years the average lifespan for an Iraqi has plummeted far below the norm.

The report breaks down who is at the highest risk, with "people applying to become police officers" at the top. Top 5 activities in Iraq that significantly reduce life expectancy:
  1. Applying to become a police officer.
  2. Giving driving directions to anyone who might possibly be Western.
  3. Going to the market to buy food.
  4. Riding the bus.
  5. Legally representing anyone in Saddam Hussein's trial.
