Bag’s Take-Away:

 What it looks like: Unfazed and totally used to the idea that attacking soldiers are part of the landscape. Seriously, when you look at this photo is it any surprise that civilians get killed on a regular basis. Makes you question the distinction the word “civilian” implies. Time to get out.
