That its a portion of the world the majority doesnt give a shit about.
Simple reason why US media doesnt cover it. American lives arent being wasted so its not interesting anymore, not even for the public.
The worlds reaction is usually this:
500 people killed in a drone attack in the middle east = Yawn. What else is on tv.
50 people in a terrorist attack in the US/Europe = Holy shit! That is horrible!
I dont LIKE it being bombed since it just leads to a lot of immigration ( Got enough of that! ) but I really dont care for that portion of the world.
A lot of people do care but they are in the minority here.
The world is a fucked up place. People these days have much more important things to worry about then some people living out in the desert halfway across the world. Better to just deal with it and live a good life.
He's trying to tell you what we all know Redead,The majority of the world don't care if people keep dying in the middle east to most people living in Europe or Australia or America any so called "3rd world country" can rot and its people lives are just less important or even not important at all.I know its disgusting how apathetic some westerns are but there's not much you can do but play along and feel good about how good you are about the fact that you care for all humans from every location.When 9/11 happened I was disgusted and felt great shame and when Japan got hit last year I was devastated,Thats just me atleast I know people who don't give a hoot about this kind of stuff and think they're cool because of how apathetic they are.

Re: Poll - Obama (D) vs Romney (R) - Vote
So after the fact a lot of people's justification for being elated by Obama's victory seems to be "He's not Mitt Romney!". Isn't that what people (rightly so) criticized Romney supporters for doing, only supporting Romney for not being Obama despite his actual policies not being particularly clear? Also, wasn't Obama primarily celebrated in 2008 for not being Bush or McCain (who the media painted as Bush 2.0, which is hilarious considering Obama's presidency has been a continuation of Bush's policies)? When are we going to select a leader based on his actual stances on the issues that matter instead of everyday Americans getting involved in media-constructed vendettas none of us have any reason to be involved in?
Honestly, Romney is a democrat's kind of Republican. Supports big government. Created the blueprint for Obamacare and passed it in Mass. as governor. Follows the Keynesian (government spending = economic growth) model of economics which Democrats champion.
Meanwhile, regarding foreign policy, Obama might as well be a fucking neo-con. Ramped up the drone strikes in several countries (most of which we are not at war with making them ILLEGAL military actions), got us involved in more foreign wars, is eyeing another in Syria, tripled our military presence in Afghanistan, continues his rhetoric about being a global force for good meaning more nation building in the Middle East using money we don't have while our economy at home is in shambles. Then there's the extension of the PATRIOT act he campaigned against and signing the NDAA allowing any American citizen to be detained indefinitely without due process.
There wasn't a real choice in the 2012 election, and Obama is an awful president. He inherited a bad economy in 2008, and has put out highly questionable numbers suggesting it MIGHT be getting better. Meanwhile he's ramped up our aggressive neo-con foreign policy and has attacked our civil liberties more than any president prior. But then again, he is friends with Jay-Z, and his wife does seem nice.

Must have been a world of evil clowns that let it happen.
But now I recognize, that you were there and so was I.
I'm pretty sure my freedoms (my right to choose, my friends' hard-fought rights to marry people of the same gender, my hypothetical children's right to an education) are safe & sound in the hands of Barack Obama.
