War today, generalization alert

From Talking Points Memo
again -- a post summing up refugee movements generated by the disorder in Iraq.

TPM cites a UN report which estimates 100,000 refugees leaving each month, "arterial bleeding" indeed.

When we hear, in such situations, that the people of country X want this, or are doing that, or are thinking the other thing, it's always important to remember that those who leave or those who die are seldom counted.
