Terry Jones: Why are there no fundraisers for the Iraqi dead?


Feel free - donate.
but somehow I doubt those who complain are donating.
I suggest CARE.. oh wait they killed them... hmmm...

- Besides the obvious lack of knowledge of current affairs he is obviously an idiot.
he has equated the 100,000 death toll over several years due to all causes with the 150,000 instantanious deaths due to only the primary effect of having a wall of water breaking you in half. The direct deaths due to us shooting people (the equivilent of te tsunami) are more in the order of te iraqi body count (probably a bit lower considering their tendancy to double count).

> Nobody is making this sort of fuss about all the people killed in Iraq

In case he has been living on another planet there have probably been several times more articles on iraqi deaths than tsunami deaths over the last few years. Soon he will be telling me the holy land is "neglected". If he wants to find a neglected place he should look at africa.

This is like comparing the toxicity of belladonna and strychnine -pointless, as both are poisonous. Surely one can deplore the Iraqi War and contribute to tsunami relief without playing catastrophe size queen politics??
