As new media technologies give occupying soldiers more scope to record their overseas adventures and disseminate them through the internet, modes of militarized global encounter have re-ordered familiar understandings of distance and difference. One consequence of the normalization of war after 9/11 has been a securitization of the tourism industry, bringing the serious questions of global violence more directly into leisured spaces like hotels, airports and tourist attractions.

Keywords:   new media technologies, Internet, distance, difference, securitization of tourism, leisured spaces, global violence
