Wow. Makes me so glad I live in America. And also makes me wonder why we don't see anything like this on the MSM. Maybe I'm just not watching the right shows. I have heard snippets about the conflict but never seen any pictures (at least I can't remember seeing them.) I heard very little news about anything much while I was in Panama. I can see how someone who doesn't use the internet, who doesn't watch any news and may only see local papers, might be disconnected from the world. That's the way I felt in Panama. I was on the internet just a few hours a day and had to use that time to catch up on my email, etc. and many days I didn't use it at all. No TV. No radio. No newspaper. It was strange.
