At least 54 people were killed today by a suicide bomber

Are we all Iraqis now?


I hate that phrase, too, but I don't think it's wrong for people to be more deeply affected when there's an attack on a place they are in love with.

Certainly, my friends who have connections to the Middle East are visibly more agitated by things like this, and I don't blame them.

DED, I heard on the radio this afternoon that there had been 10 suicide bombings in Iraq since last Friday. Not quite sure how that fits into "Mission Accomplished" or into "Freedom is on the march." If we all really were Iraqis now, I suspect that those two idiotic statements by the B*sh cartel might be closer to ringing true. What will it take for us to identify with those so wronged by this cavalier warmongering/-profiteering such that we demand an end to it?

I agree with you, Amanda, and in my case, it is relevant. My family lives in England. I was horrified to hear about the bombings in London. But I have always been a "Londoner." My countrypeople, though, I'm not so sure about.

I love London, so I was thrown by the bombing, although, like everyone else, I knew something of the sort was going to happen. I didn't cry about it though. Self-indulgent though it is, I did have a bit of a weep when I heard about the children blown apart for wanting some sweets last week. There was a vigil yesterday here in Cardiff for the people killed in the London bomb, and I couldn't help thinking that we should really be having vigils every week to commemorate the people killed in Iraq.
