Horrible Things Here and Elsewhere

A horrible thing happened in Virginia to 32 innocent students yesterday.

Meanwhile, the body count during the American military occupation of Iraq is well over 60,000, with about 500 civilian deaths in the past week, including 21 children.

I hope I can suggest without disrespect to the dead in Virginia that the incident ought to wake us up to the reality of what we have inflicted on Iraq, and make us consider whether the violence in iraq can be ended by the same military occupation which created it in the first place.

  1. Good call. The Iraq Body Count numbers are just the particular deaths which have been reported to the press, not the total number deduced from the Lancet study.
