While the U.S. is mourning the deaths of 32 students and faculty members at Virginia Tech, what are they doing in Baghdad? I say this not to belittle the tragedy in Blacksburg, but conversely to illustrate just how horrible it is to be an Iraqi: just today, almost five times as many people were killed in this Baghdad attack as died at Seung Cho's hand. And this happens every day in every city across Iraq.
Flags are half-staff across America. Think there's any chance people in Iraq might be a bit upset too?
