THat's a good point, panch. America has been the in spotlight for some time now. People tend to "care" about those they can see. With the Sept. 11th thing on every news station around the world around the clock for six months, a global response is kinda of expected. However, with IRaq, for the past 11 years these children haven't even come within a mile of the spotlight. The media doesn't bombard our tv sets and newspapers with pictures of dead babies. The impact hearing about dying children is much less than the impact pictures of the starving have.
That logic may even be flawed because we've been seeing the skeletal Ethopians starving for a couple decades now, and still nothing has changed.
