The BBC decides to showcase the names and faces of those killed during the Peshawar attacks. Rightly so every innocent life should have a name, a picture and a story to share to the world to know that a real life was taken unjustly.
But what happened to the names, pictures and stories of over 2000 killed by US drones in Pakistan? Will we get the names, pictures and stories of over 500,000 children killed in Iraq by the sanctions.
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.
I guess not. Some lives have more value than others or more ratings. Either way the innocent always get lost.
