Doing better then Saddam is not something be proud of and nor is it a good defense: "We are doing better then the worst people in the world."Things like this happened under Saddam's rule. The difference is that the US tries those of their own that are charged with crimes. Saddam's government was explicitly behind the brutality of his regime, and did nothing to stop it.
So 655000 means nothing to you, but 32 students who were killed in Virginia Tech university means a lot to you. Because you do believe that the American blood is more valuable than the Iraqi blood.
