Bombs Away

Who Cares?

According to this piece by Tom Engelhardt, the US dropped 45,000 kilograms or so of explosives in a small area south of Baghdad, Arab Jabour, a small Sunni farming community. This barely made the news. The Germans reportedly dropped 45,000 kilograms of explosives on on Guernica on April 27, 1937. It was seen as a tragedy. Engelhardt investigates US air power today and how it's reported. What would once have been deemed barbaric hardly merits a sentence in the news.
