Lost in all the talk about this brutal slaughter is the brutal slaughter
*ing* of how many hundreds or thousands of Yemeni people by the Saudi
regime. Since the great majority are simple workers or peasants, they don't
count.

Of course, the reasons that the murder of Khashoggi shocks the world are
twofold:
1) He was a correspondent for an important bourgeois newspaper; and
2) More important, this murder violates the diplomatic niceties, the rules
of the game by which all capitalist governments are supposed to operate.
