Closer - GNN
The news coverage of America's 'shock and awe' campaign during Operation Iraqi
Freedom brought television audiences closer to the spectre of war than ever before.
It was an unparalled orgy of military fetishism that featured, as its primary
spectacle, the wholesale demolition of a major cultural capital, one of the oldest
in the history of human civilization.

before the fall. (Video, TRT: 3 min. 2003, USA/ Poland)
