It is a very fair point....

Whenever anything like this happens in the USA, there is worldwide media saturation for days and even weeks after the event and yet barely an eyelid is batted at the daily atrocities and tragedies in the rest of the world........... especially those which occur in what are deemed to be "less developed" nations. Furthermore, when airstrikes take out civilians in Afghanistan for example, it is lucky if it gets a mention in the Western media.

The recent events in the USA are indeed tragic and I feel sympathy for all those effected. However, Americans (and indeed all of us) need to try and be a little more worldly wise and appreciate that there are things happening elsewhere on a significantly grander scale.
