I hear the all-clear siren in the background of the interview. The correspondent verifies that it's the all-clear, removes his gas mask, and resumes his sentence. That siren is one of the most frigntening things I've ever heard. Imagine what it sounds like in person. Imagine what the one before the all-clear sounded like. And this is in Kuwait, where there's almost no real threat.
