Why exactly do you focus on this little ass issue.. I personaly find it deicraceful that the select few from each country should get their own
mention...above the other 150 000!
I listen to the news often, and lately over here, there has been many phrases such as:
"The UN believes that the actual number will be somewhere close to 150, 000...... 13! AUSTRALIANS ARE NOW CONFIFMED DEAD, if you require more
information visit our website..." Etc.
I find it appauling that after such dealings with Racism over the last century, that many countries still let their tens of people stand out above the
other 150,000 !
If they were to say:
"140 000 dead, among them 13 australians" Fine, but
"140 000 dead, including 13 australians are confirmed dead. It must have been devistating for them to experience such devestation in a forign
country. The Australian government is going to bring the survivors "x" ammout of supplies in "x" form, and will focus on getting the alive
australians out of there as soon as possible if requested." Is another thing.
The day before, I saw a news update, COMPLETELY on the 13 australian victums. 3 minutes about THEM, THEM above the othre 150 000. I keep mentionning
this fugure, because even mathematically, it is extremely insignificant....
I don't think this mention is justifyable.
