Let's Not Be Concerned, It's Only the Equivalent of the Entire Population of Ireland Being Killed

"[A]t least 3.3 million people have died in the war that has gripped the Democratic Republic of Congo since 1998, making it the deadliest documented conflict since World War II. . . . In less than five years, the equivalent of the entire population of Chicago was wiped out in the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. That's the equivalent of every man, woman and child in Ireland being killed. Surely if something of this nature occurred, it would have made the headlines. It's too shocking and horrible to ignore, one would think. . . ."

Thanks, fatfeistyfemme.
