A little side note in the International Press:
a few dozen people bombed to death in Iraq, 2 days ago, for a total of 4000 in January to August 2013. Compare that the press reports about the 3 killed in the Boston Marathon bombing.
- the homicide rates in Iraq as a whole are lower then Detroit, Chicago, and even Washington DC homicide rates.
- And the pacified half of Iraq, including Kurdistan, have homicide rates as low as Canada.
Similarly, thousands of black on black murders cause less headline then the single George Zimmerman case.
We will not comment. Make up your own mind about biased press and perceived dangers.
More than 60 people have been killed and nearly 300 others wounded in a series of bomb attacks in Iraq.
Over 60 killed in one day
