My thoughts are with the victims and families of the victims in these days after the Virginia Tech massacre. I can not even imagine what it must have been like to go through such horror and I wish that I could give a hug to everyone of those students, teachers and family members. However, let us not forget that massacres like this are occurring everyday in Iraq:
BAGHDAD (AP) -- Police in Ramadi uncovered 17 decomposing corpses buried beneath two schoolyards in a district that until recently was under the control of al-Qaida fighters. At least 85 people were killed or found dead across the country Tuesday.
GOI: And today:
BAGHDAD - Four large bombs exploded in mostly Shiite areas of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 160 people and wounding scores as violence climbed toward levels seen before the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital began two months ago.
GOI: CNN is now reporting that the count is up to at least 170 since this story was posted on MSN.com. That's nearly six times more then the Virginia Tech murders and yet the news is barely mentioning it. In fact, at least 255 Iraqis have been killed in the last two days alone. It's sad how Americans see the life of another American more precious than that of anyone else.
