“It blows away anything we’ve ever seen before. There’s media people on tanks. We’re seeing war as it happens.”
“It’s kind of intense in terms of there’s so much more communication now. … It’s a little too real for me.”
“I think one of the things that’s really noticeable about this one is you’re really getting a blow-by-blow account.”
“I think now they’re more interested in ratings. The media got all hyped up and they were a little disappointed when they didn’t get the ‘shock and awe’ the first couple of days.”
