While looking for war

While looking for war news without bluster I came across a video feed from Baghdad on CBSNews.com (link at upper right: "LIVE Now! Baghdad skyline"). Most of the time it's showing an eerily beautiful moonlit sky with clouds sliding over. At first the soundtrack was of cars passing and the occasional honk. Then there were footsteps, and several men, apparently Iraqis, wandered in front of the camera, which is mounted at knee level. I'm now eavesdropping on their conversation and wishing I had a translator.

Update: As of 3 P.M. it looks like the feed is down.
