It’s unheard of now to go observe a battle taking place, but it did happen in the past (at least when battles were fought with rules of engagement). Now we cant even get independent media to show us what’s going on and that has badly sanitized war. We don’t see the suffering of our bombs, we don’t see the faces of ours and theirs dead. War is a carefully mediated abstract.
