QUIZ: Which is more dangerous, citizen Chicago or a soldier in Afghanistan?

How dangerous is it for an American soldier in Afghanistan or a resident of Chicago in 2012?  Turns out Chicago is more dangerous with widespread gang violence.
Barely six months into 2012, Chicago has already hosted 228 homicides this year; overseas in Afghanistan, the body count for US troops has reached a comparably meager 144. Matched up against other major cities, Chicago’s murder rate exceeds four-times what residents of New York have experienced this year, reports The Daily. What’s worse, however, is that death toll isn’t expected to teeter off anytime soon.
 Easily to see Afghanistan as a dangerous place to be because there's a war going on.  It's reality check when we see what's going on in Chicago.
