the numbers game

While the logistics of who's killed how many in Iraq remains controversial, with vast disparities between the official and unofficial body count, no one seems to be denying what is going on in Afghanistan. The civilian death toll for June alone stands at over 200 killed by coalition troops. Despite the UK being under it's own attacks, the local media has found time to report such wearying news, unlike the apathy in our local press.

But the "good guys" killing the innocent doesn't sell papers. Let's have more Paris Hilton being released from jail. Now that's what I call news.
