something to think about this weekend perhaps..
The War in Iraq:
The worldwide update of reported civilian deaths in the Iraq war and occupation
currently over 70,000 and counting
Soldier deaths by Coalition Country
4,373 and counting…
HELLO George Bush??!! Something’s not working here!!!
these are not just random counters, this is the actual death toll. 75,000. Think of all the mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, grandparents, grandchildren, aunties, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, husbands, wives, friends and colleagues who are grieving for each one of those 75,000 people.
Think how much pain and fear all the rest of the Iraqis are living in now.
How many years it will take to rebuild basic infrastructure.
How many generations it will take to dull the grief of loss.
Last weekend in Hyderabad 42 people were killed and 60 were injured in a blast in an auditorium.
Bombings are starting to become ‘normal’ in India, and seem to be forgotten about within a few days in the news.
