Even during a war, people have to eat.  It is never just the military in the area
civilians have to live too.  This is a typical market found in WW2 with tent cities
the same way many of these areas still live today.  I've seen markets
similar to this in the Philippines, Korea and in Thailand too.  We are
super lucky to be living in the United States.  I'm sorry, but it makes me
feel real bad to see how well we live and how poor other nations are
all around the world even today.
