dont be fickle.
Why do people always write things like this?
This is just the way it is. Sad, yes, but thats how life is.
Things closer to home will always get more attention than across the world. If my kid falls seriously ill, i'm gutted, if one in another country
does, it doesn't affect me. Doesn't mean i like it.
I appreciate that people get killed everywhere, but fact is, many here will have relatives or friends at that base, or have emotional ties through
past or present military.
I won't critisize your right to your opinion, but please don't expect everyone here not to be concerned about this. That would be very silly.
I would bet you are exactly the same. If a suicide bomber blew up a bus in Afghanistan, you wouldn't raise an eye to watch it on tv, yet if they did
it in your home town, you'd sit up.
