The Media Are Minimizing US and British War Crimes in Iraq

It is so frustrating to see how the US is still involved with the murders of 10,000+ people. And we don’t talk about it. We moan about our losses, our big building and our dead 3,000+ from 9/11. Oddly we don’t moan about the 2,000+ we’ve lost since then.

It’s also amazing to hear how the righteous right are inappropriately positive despite all this human death; it’s as if they, like the brainwashed 9/11 hijackers, believe everyone who’s dead is drinking milk and honey in the afterlife.

t r u t h o u t – George Monbiot | The Media Are Minimizing US and British War Crimes in Iraq: “Iraq Body Count, whose tally has reached 26,000-30,000, measures only civilian deaths which can be unambiguously attributed to the invasion and which have been reported by two independent news agencies. As the compilers point out, ‘it is likely that many if not most civilian casualties will go unreported by the media … our own total is certain to be an underestimate of the true position, because of gaps in reporting or recording’.”
