Seriously, that's literally what they're suggesting.
Surely, though, this is beyond parody. I mean, how can I live in a world where this picture isn't ironic?
Or where you can apparently prove a war has been won because less American soldiers are shot (edit: shot in Iraq, I mean) than American citizens are shot in Chicago? 
It'd be like kicking a puppy; it just wouldn't be fair. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a particularly encouraging statistic. I'm just not sure more civvies dying in one city than soldiers in a war is proof that the war is over, so much as it is that Chicago is not somewhere people should be spending any time if they can help it.
