When the Shoe is on the Other Foot

“The bombings in Boston today were horrible, and I do not intend to suggest anything else. But I cannot help thinking that at least hundreds of such street-side bombings, some of them much more powerful and lethal, have occurred in Baghdad during the past decade. I very much doubt whether many Americans have any real idea of how it feels to live in such an environment. Of course, Baghdad has scarcely been unique except in its size, and many, many such bombings have also occurred elsewhere in Iraq and in Afghanistan during these years. No wonder mental disturbances have become extremely common among the Iraqi people.” — Robert Higgs
