Daily Life

I saw this picture and thought that it showed something different. A newer model Mercedes Benz, modern freeway and bridge, a hillside (what you can see of it) with green foliage growing. So many of the middle east war pictures we see are so different from our life in America. Different looking cars, different looking people, often sandy mostly barren desert areas and very different houses. This just struck me as more like the suburban America I live in. Except for the political signs, it looks just like the roads where I drive. Okay, except for the fact that it has just been bombed too.

Some wealthy guy going about his daily business in his Mercedes in Lebanon, when he has to turn around and drive the wrong way on the freeway because the bridge has just been destroyed by Israeli warplanes in reprisal for the capture of 2 soldiers and the killings of 8 others.
