No America, this is what mass murder looks like.
I don’t wish to sound harsh, but what America is feeling today over the loss of 32 of their kids is the way Baghdad feels every day of every week of every month of every year since Bush invaded Iraq. Somehow (perhaps it is because they are Muslim or brown) when they bleed it isn’t as devastating as it is when we bleed.
Virginia Tech will mourn and they will grieve and the will move on, however in Baghdad the pain continues day in and day out.
Iraqi PM condemns Baghdad attacks
There are fears that the death toll could rise further. Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki has condemned bombings in Baghdad that killed nearly 200 people - the worst day of violence since a US security operation began. Mr Maliki said those behind Wednesday's attacks were "soldiers of Satan". He also ordered the arrest of the army commander responsible for security in Sadriya district were some 140 people died in a car bombing in a food market.
