    While I very deeply regret the killings of the innocent men women and children of last night's terrorist attacks, i ask myself why does Iraq not get that much publicity and respect for the killings of 500,000 CHILDREN by our British and American forces ?

    because in the media iraqis are not judged the same as americans lets say in the 911 event. I think we all know this, but we dont talk about this much in public

    That's the media for you. When there was that earthquake in Iran recently, the daily mail confined the "tens of thousands killed in iran" story to page 3, with some garbage about the royal family before it.
