22. Friends and family are OK so far
It's about more than that - you can't show non stop coverage of the Arab spring, cheer them on and discuss the economic side of that struggle and not expect those at home to wonder about the conditions of their lives. I don't condone the burning and looting of property but everyone will be paying attention shortly and what's more there will be construction jobs when the rubble is cleared.
