2,618 Minutes of Silence

On the first anniversary of the Madrid train bombings in which 191 people died, I read that Spain remembered the victims with 5 minutes silence and I wonder how many people spare a second for the 2,618 pro-rata minutes of silence it would take to pay similar homage to the 100,000 Iraqis slaughtered during the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
