Why do a lot of Americans think 'American lives' are more precious than any other lives?
Even if you look about on Y!A, most Americans are incredibly concerned of the death of say, one US soldier, but if American troops accidentally fire a missile at a building full of Afghan civilians, they don't even mention it. If you bring it up, it's "collateral damage".
Do many Americans really think that American lives are much more important than other lives? Or does it just seem that way?
