    Indeed the numbers were far higher in Rwanda. It did take several weeks, that is true.

    If we add time, I'm not sure far higher is correct (radiation lasts awhile). But not the point. The person I was arguing with was talking about far earlier than Rwanda, which we both agree was horrible and immoral.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Good reply. I do have to admit that you're not a conservative in the modern context of the word, and I have to give you props for that.

    But my point stands that those who are conservative should be eager for Iran and just about every other nation to get the bomb - it's the same logic they use for guns: if everyone is armed, it will be more peaceful because everyone can shoot back.

    the question is are they suicidal.. or will their religion tell them to kill the west if it mean killing themselves...or would they accidently let a radical group of people get one to use against the west/Christians....maybe we cannot take that chance....until we would know for sure we should stop them....korea knows better than to use a nuke against us...they would be dead in 2 minutes ...I am sure we have a couple of subs off there coast 20 mile out....
    I find the lack of logic in humans most disturbing...

    The correlation between armed citizens and restrained behavior has only been demonstrated in the U.S.

    Not to that degree.

    I think that Switzerland and Finland would disagree with that. Then again, their gun ownership is still significantly more regulated than our own.

    But in any case, correlation does not equal causation...because if it did, well, then we easily can point out which first-world nation has by far the highest homicide rate....
