Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Ever lived in a war zone?

I mean the guns hot, bombs falling around you variety.

I have been to a few war zones, but after the fact.

I wonder what it's like to be in the thick of it, for days on end.

I lived in Tbilisi during the civil war/uprising that deposed Zviad Chamsachurdia.

Shooting all the time for months, bullet holes in our walls and windows, neighbors shot etc.

I could not sleep due to the shooting for three days or so. They were shooting with heavy guns (mounted on trucks) to flush out the rebels from the TV station and that kind of thing.

It would take too long to tell all the stories. I have many crazy stories from that time but I have to go to bed now. I was with the rebels for a while.

My wife lived through a dictatorship.  Today she finds it odd how many Americans want to go visit shit-hole countries thinking they can "save them".  Americans have no idea how cushy they have it.  I guess that is why they won't fix their own shit at home.
