Dude, I watched Kosovo being bombed into the Stone Age live in 97, when I was five, I watched Afghanistan get crushed on live telly when I was ten and I watched Baghdad go up in flames on live telly when I was eleven.

I say, give me the popcorn for Russia vs Georgia.

There isn't much to see from the sidelines in modern warfare.

They'll shell the shit out of each other from a distance until one side stops.

They should send Ross Kemp in, he'll give us the frontline view.

Wars suck these days. In terms of glitz and glamour.

Back in the old days soldiers stood in a line a shot the hell out of each other.

Wars aren't really that exciting. Modern weaponry has got to be responsible for some of the most dullest wars in history. I wish people went back to using swords and spears e.t.c. Or maybe develop new weapons with which you can rip people apart by summoning a black hole or something. I wouldn't mind fighting in a war using black holes. Might be a cool way to die. I really want to experience what being in a black hole is like.

Maybe if there was nothing else on TV I'd watch it, but I'd rather watch anime.

I know what's happened in every armed conflict between developed nations in the last 50 years.

They shell each other until one stops, then they send in the ground troops into the urban areas, but from the side lines it just looks like shelling, shelling, bombing, more shelling, bombing. etc etc.

Fact is, a live feed in a war would be mostly incredibly boring. Unless you had many live feeds coming from cameras mounted on soldiers helmets, and those remote-controlled recconaissance planes and stuff.
But more than likely, you'd get a week of jack sh*t happening, and then you'd hear a couple of explosions, and then the feed would go dead, because cameramen and media types really shouldn't be there. Combat is no place for non-combatants.

Can we get back to singing the song, please?

The good bit has been done.
I think we should instead discuss best how to make war into a proper media event.

Make it seem glamorous?
Portray our boys as the last stand against the ultimate evil?
Images of families and children of soldiers are always good.

No thank you. I don't like to see soldiers kill other people for their masters own amusement and interest.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

I don't think you understand quite how serious war is?

No way would I watch it.

I was thinking more like a reality TV show. You could have phone ins to decide whether you hold your ground or retreat; counter attack or dig in; open up a second front.
That sort of thing. Who needs actual generals when you have unemployed people sh*t faced on cheap cider?

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

Ah yes, but the question was: "Would you watch a live stream of war?"
Not 'would you watch a live stream of nothing happening?'

Yes, and even in a really big war, there isn't always fighting. There is very often nothing happening(at least, nothing that's exciting to watch, anyway).
I mean, most of it would be like "after this next commercial break, the soldiers of 5 platoon find out if they've been landed with menu C ration packs - AGAIN!!!!".

We could send some carboard boxes over.
Everytime a soldier does something with a cardboard box, Hell itself tends to break loose.

i would super seriouslly love that phone in reality Tv thing.
And then when we needed drama we could starve the troops, and then make the audience decide which one of the soldiers they should all eat first.
