Who cares about 1.2 million dead Iraqis?

I've noticed this week that people I've spoken to are either ignorant of or unconcerned by the new report that 1.2 million Iraqis have died since the illegal invasion.

AlterNet has found a similar phenomenon:

"For example, this Monday, AlterNet ran [an] article about the recent report that 1.2 million civilians have died violent deaths since the U.S. invasion. It was our top story, and the number of people who read it (24,000) was far lower than we expected."

The effort to tear people of goodwill away from their TV sets and into committed action for peace grows apace, but the yards are hard.
