See this quote from the dailykos dairy-"Bombs Away -- edited}
by Maryscott OConnor {Thu Mar 16, 2006} :

"See no evil, feel no evil.
One of the biggest reasons people in this country don't identify with the suffering of people in other countries - esp. countries and peoples we happen to be bombing - is that they (U.S. citizens) are kept hermetically sealed from our military's actions. Our corporate media self-censors, so no one ever sees the bloody, disatrous, and unspeakable results of our bombs. The inevitable result is that body counts and "casualties" are nothing more than a number in most peoples' minds.
