8. I'm beginning to think its all relative
In other words we in the West are used to a high quality of life, so when one of our own suffers, its a greater distance in the fall.

The Iraqis have always been impoverished - 2 wars and 10 years of world-wide sanctions attest to that, even before OIF.

Thats the only way I can rationalize the situation and keep sane.
