Is that selfish?
I mean really-- how does this war affect me directly? Other than a sense of disgust, I'm still walking the dog, looking for a job, and scratching my ass like normal. Hey, I'm not asking for more. Intellectually I hate seeing all of the destruction, while at the same time I'm marveling at the technology of the U.S. war machine, but it's less involving than a videogame.
And I have plenty of other stuff to be thinking about.
