yourquestion.org (major rant warning!)

this is my question submitted to yourquestion.org: are american lives lost in the iraqi war more valuable than those of iraqi civilians?
it just seems to me a certain four-letter name person thinks so. please check out iraqibodycount.org. no life is so insignificant as to be expendable.

    No one is more valuable than anyone else but to “blame” someone on the body count when the war is in the back yard of the side with the highest count is asinine.

    If the war were in America I would bet we would be on top of the body count scale. War isn’t precise, people get hurt and die all the time.

    We can’t change the fact that we went there, what we can do is finish the job and get out once we know we’ve done everything we could to get them on their feet again.

    i agree with your comment 100%. i’m not indignant over the fact that casualties are higher over there. as you said, it is expected to be so. what provokes me is the way the news is presented, usually with headlines such as “x american lives lost…”. same with addresses to the nation. i just think lives lost are lives lost, regardless of country of origin. there is nothing wrong with saying “x more lives lost…”. these are people we’re talking about. they should not be mourned more or less depending on where they were from.
