Subject: RE: USA and the World
Let us not forget that more than 50 countries have suffered losses of life in that tragedy. Of course, the numbers of dead foreigners pale in comparison to dead US citizens. However, just to give you a perspective, the number of dead Germans will be either the highest since the train crash in Eschede (101 dead) in 1998, or even the highest since the big flood in Hamburg in 1962 (more than 300 dead). Up to 100 or even more dead Germans would have made a headline here for days in succession even if nobody else had died.
