Re: breaking news

They are in a war zone - as much as we disagree with that - these people were at University.

I was following this story since I left work at 4:45pm when it was just being increased from 1 dead to 22, CNN has only just increased their figure to 31, sky stated 32 about an hour ago.

Re: breaking news

Yes, they are in a war zone, but they are as innocent as these students. Why highlight the killing of 30 something US students over the killing of more people every single day in situations for which the USA is directly responsible. Is a death of an innocent in Iraq or Afghanistan of less importance than the killing of an innocent in the USA?

Firstly, only some are. But as sad as it is to say, that happens every day and has done for years now, that's years of media coverage. This is news, civilians dying in Iraq is not news, we know it's happening. If this happened every day, day in day out, it wouldn't be such a big thing.

If it had happened in Britain would it have been a problem posting it?

Re: breaking news

Don't get me wrong, there is no problem with posting that at all. Obviously it's tragic, but I'm playing devils advocate to try and stir a debate.

Is it so terrible that 30 people are killed in the US when more than that die each day in a US inspired war?

Isnt it bad enough that the gunman excercised his right to bear arms? Maybe this will bring home to the americans what iraqi's are living with every day thanks to Bush & his lap dog Blair.
