Terror at a university and a university of terror

Yesterday, Larry Johnson juxtaposed the Virginia Tech massacre with the war in Iraq. His point was to emphasis that while the events at the university were indeed tragic, your average Iraqi endures far worse on almost a daily basis. And yet the later hardly warrants the wall-to-wall coverage the former is now receiving. Some may object to such a comparison but it is nonetheless a valid one. Events like yesterday's pale in comparison to those which happen with far too much frequency in Iraq. And everyday that goes by, more and more die as the graduates of the "university of terror" we helped create there advance through the academic levels of their deadly vocation.
