Newtown vs. Drones

George Monbiot compares sympathy for the victims of Newtown to indifference for civilian victims of drone strikes in Pakistan.  He draws on a detailed report from Stanford and NYU.
From June 2004 through mid-September 2012, available data indicate that drone strikes killed 2,562–3,325 people in Pakistan, of whom 474–881 were civilians, including 176 children. — The Bureau of Investigative Journalism
