An Eerie Silence

There's been an eerie silence in litblog-land regarding the current catastrophe, er, crisis in the Middle East. This is particularly disturbing given what the likely consequences are. Already we know that the situation has worsened significantly for the entire region, no matter what your political view. And again, no matter what your view, the degree of violence that is taking place is utterly heartbreaking.

The only exception to this silence that I've come across so far has been a post at Moorish Girl. And the silence can't be indifference.
(I know litblogland is not exactly populated with people who take media and/or governmental pronouncements at face value). So If other litbloggers have something to add, then please do so.

This is a real crisis. And it will affect us all.
