In the first few years that we used to visit the Middle East before we moved here, we rented an apartment. One night I was flicking through the 'less
popular' channels of the TV just to see what sort of things were on, when I came across a strange channel basically showing clip after clip (real
life) of what was clearly a war zone somewhere in the middle East ( most likely Iraq or Afghanistan at that time but can't be sure).
The fanatics/extremists, which they clearly were, were basically feeling victorious as they could be seen to shoot and obviously kill Western troops
in tanks. It was shocking for me - all I could think was this is someone's brother / father / son they are doing this to. It's so easy for people to
become desensitised when watching on a screen but this was bloodthirsty and horrible :0(
Needless to say I didn't watch for long, hence why I don't remember which country's TV Chanel it was. it's not something I think I will ever
forget, the images of those soldiers dropping.
Also news reports here regarding events in war torn countries etc tend to be far more graphic than I've ever seen in the West. Not something I choose
to watch at all, we're all human at the end of the day, no matter what 'side' we are on and I can't understand anyone having the desire to see
another person killed, whatever the
