NPT Drug War: Worse than Baghdad?
Ok, so the “consider the source” thing comes into play a bit here. For example, there’s the database recommended by the Department of Defense, which probably counts civilian casualties differently from, say, an NGO or even the U.N. Just guessing here. These are caveats I’d want to check out before I took ownership of the info.
That said, CNS News reported this about a week ago:
The per capita rate of civilian killings in the Mexican border city in 2008 was nearly three-and-a-half times (3.4) as great as the per capita rate of civilian killings in the Iraqi province of Baghdad, CNSNews.com has determined, based on State Department statistics and data supplied by an Iraqi civilian-casualty database recommended by the Department of Defense.
