I have noticed that your newspaper has started to ignore what is going on in Iraq. Sunday, you reported how many of our soldiers died in Iraq in April (which is worthy), but you didn't report how many Iraqis had been killed. You ignored that there was heavy fighting in Baghdad the day before, in which around 70 Iraqis were killed -- mostly unarmed citizens, and most killed by rockets and aerial bombardment by our troops. I checked each page to make sure I didn't miss any mention of the horrific events, in some obscure corner of your paper.
The fact that you didn't print the Iraqi casualties was a matter of choice and not lack of news about these issues. According to various other sources, the Iraqi toll in April has been a lot higher than in previous months, just like the losses of our soldiers. This disregard for Iraqi losses suggests your paper doesn't care about Iraqi suffering, and considers Iraqis less than our soldiers and therefore not worthy of mention.
I demand more balanced coverage of news from Iraq, and treatment of Iraqi suffering on the same level of coverage as that of our troops.
Never miss a local story.
