More than 160 people have been killed since Tuesday in Iraq. Where are the crocodile tears?

Can you IMAGINE if 160 people were killed last week, here in the US? Considering what the criminals in DC did to the people of Boston while looking for a teenager suspected of killing 3...its really hard to even imagine the show of force that would be displayed if a handful of individuals killed 160! But, alas, the people who were killed in Iraq last week were not real people at all. They were brown in color, lived in a far away land, and they are still trying to get used to the "Freedom and Democracy" that the MIC has blessed them with.

Reuters) - Bomb blasts in Baghdad killed at least 20 more people on Friday at the end of a week of bloodshed that prompted a United Nations envoy to warn Iraq was "at a crossroads".

More than 160 people have been killed since Tuesday, when troops stormed a Sunni protest camp near Kirkuk, triggering clashes that quickly spread to other Sunni areas in western and northern provinces.

Although well below the heights of 2006-7, this week's violence was the most widespread since U.S. troops pulled out of Iraq in December 2011. Militant attacks have increased this year as Iraq's fragile ethnic and sectarian balance comes under growing strain from the civil war in neighboring Syria.

BRAVO go213mph...Excellent post.

I couldn't have said it any better.

1,507 people were killed in Iraq since Tuesday

If you adjust for the fact that the US population is 9.5 times that of Iraq's, 160 deaths in Iraq is, proportionally, akin to 1,507 here.

You make great points, go213

This whole thing is tragic and angering at the same time.

I just still can't believe all the war criminals are walking free.

Instead...we honor a war criminal by dedicating a presidential library to him.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Of course....this is getting buried in the news! Why??

Because the US and allied forces supposedly "liberated" Iraq and the mainstream media cant talk about what an abject failure it was.

Definitely a blacklisted subject for them.

Drone Serial Murderers: The Price of Collectivist Evil, and Face of Their Victims

The Faceless, H. R. Giger-esque Alien monster-headed technological embodiment of collectivists' Evil:

Serial Killer

Posted by Lew Rockwell on April 28, 2013 01:24 PM

A little after 10:00 p.m., and a serial killer is getting ready to make his move. He has watched and waited for this moment for some time.

He watches his victim get out of a cab and dig in his pockets for money. Two of his children run out to the porch to greet their daddy. The killer presses a button and watches as the victim, the taxi driver and the two children are vaporized. Other people in the house, the man's wife, parents and three other children are badly injured and burnt by the high explosive.

The house next door partially collapses, killing an elderly woman and injuring her grandson. But this is just the beginning.

Neighbors and emergency personnel arrive and begin trying to help the victims. There is chaos...children screaming, people wailing and the cries of the burnt and injured. Several people are trapped under rubble.

When enough people have gathered, the killer presses the button again. Fifteen seconds later, all those at the scene are vaporized or blown to shreds. The killer high-fives his partner. In two hours he will be off work! They are planning on driving in to Las Vegas, have some cocktails, maybe pick up some girls.
