I wonder how many innocent women and children have been killed by the drones
American deaths get a lot of publicity because the US is a big, powerful country. As a result, it's all over Twitter and all kinds of media. Is it fair that they get so much more attention than civilians killed by drones? Of course not. But personally, I don't think I'm to blame for knowing/talking more about an incident 5 miles away from my room, than about incidents that are a thousand miles away. It's quite possible that people I know have been injured, and that does make a difference. Given a choice, would I rather save an American over, say, an Iraqi? Of course not. But I'm not given a choice in terms of who I know (and therefore feel more qualified to speak) more about
: the lives lost nearby, or the lives lost due to American aggression. I'm not proud of it, but I can't do too much about the reality of localism, or the reality of a nation's dominance, which works in sports as it does in real life.
