obviously, i read the same report you did and even cited it. but i was going for sarcastic effect. also it promotes people going out and reading the stats themselves. i bet you, like i were very interested in the actual stats WHO compiled.
i can't claim a full trust of those stats as reporting of homocides in some nation states are highly suspect, kind of like reports of domestic survailence.
but, we make do with what we've got absent something better.
