Shock and Awe has officially begun. It is sad that there were some who felt the war started off too slow, and we could almost hear the moan of newscasters awaiting the big bang.
Amongst the comments heard over the news channels today, a Fox correspondent stationed in Iraq likened the scene to an "action movie". I'm not sure if it's because our appetites have grown so numb, but I actually found myself awaiting some form of explosion on television. It's almost surreal how the loss of life takes a backseat to the "oooh" factor of visual pyrotechnics.
So, everyone's happy now right? In Jack Ryan's (or rather, the villian's) words, "you've got your own little war".
Have a nice day everyone.
