It's just war, isn't it?
There really isn't much use in paying much need to stories like this is there? I mean, death in Arabia is just so commonplace that hey, who cares?
I mean, more than a dozen American soldiers were killed just yesterday, no big news right? And of course scores of Iraqis and Afghans died yesterday too, but so what? Scores or Arabs died the day before yesterday, will today and will tommorow as well.
So, who cares?
Not Americans it seems, While The Decider tells the world commuity that "When Americans see a lost life, we cry." One could suppose those tears are wiped away so the public can focus of Anna Nicole Smith's baby daddy or Paris' trip down jailhouse legitimacy towards respectable street cred, but that's just too lefty for real Americans to take seriously.
Believe me, it's hard to be a real person amongst the responsible conservative muck and mire that says like FOX's Bill O'Reilly that reporting Arab deaths amounts to treason. But what is an authentic human being supposed to feel, to care about? If you are a Canadian and speak truth to power as the progressives like to say you'll be tagged as an Anti-American liberal Canuck, so the "responsible" Canadians, Liberal or Tory, sit quitely and plead for U.S. mercy in print.
So, what are good Westerners "supposed" to care about? Oh, I've got it, Vice President Cheney's Halliburton dividends, Gays who want to get married so they can actualise their plot to destroy America and Bush's non-existing weekly reading list given to him by Oprah.
Deaths in Western Asia do not count. Unarmed African males shot and tortured by American law enforcement do not count either. American Aboriginals tagged as terrorists by the Canadian government, non-news. Asian Mail-order-brides inticed to the U.S. by American propaganda that tells them their native men are useless and poor gone missing in Kansas, that's not news either.
Even American military deaths are not enough to stir the emotions of the "responsible," but may the gods protect thee should you dare ask why the mainstream public remains apathetic to their part in allowing a genocide to take place in several locales at one time and remain silent. And if you demand answers to American hands caught in the oil cookie-jar, then you are just a stupid liberal morally supporting the terrorists. The wrong ones anyway.

KABUL, Afghanistan - Taliban militants attacked police posts in southern Afghanistan, triggering NATO airstrikes that left 25 civilians dead, including three infants and the local mullah, a senior police officer said Friday.
NATO said its overnight bombardment killed most of a group of 30 insurgents and blamed them for the deaths of any innocents, saying they had launched "irresponsible" attacks from civilian homes.
NATO acknowledged for the first time that civilians died in another battle that began last weekend in Uruzgan province, including some possibly in airstrikes. But a Dutch military chief accused the Taliban of killing Afghans who refused to join them during the three-day battle in the town of Chora.
Taliban fighters slashed the throats of eight women and hauled other people out of their homes to kill them, Gen. Dick Berlijn told reporters in The Hague, Netherlands, citing "solid reports" from Afghan police.
