Let the Media Coverage of Manchester Victims Be a Model for All Young Victims of War

Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan

Donald Trump, the so-called leader of the free world, made his first foreign visit as president to an absolute monarchy, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a petrostate legendary for its complete absence of democratic institutions and rampant violations of human rights. The signature foreign-policy development that Trump announced in Riyadh over the weekend was a massive, $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia. Many people are going to be killed by this flood of weaponry. But this is not a done deal; Trump’s affinity for autocrats, strongmen and bullies is facing resistance.

For every time I hear some news of an attack such as the Manchester bombing, I come across ten times as much news like this:
US says Mosul strike in March killed over 100 civilians

And if the Pentagon says it killed 100 civilians, you know that number is likely to be 400.
