peanut gallery in the cross fires

According to an AP article, many of the people killed in this past week's paramilitary mutiny have been civilians. Well, when civilians crowd around military tanks and a compound that is being held by mutineers as if it were the 1960's and the Beatles were inside, I think it's fair to say, some of them are going to get taken down.

Again, if it were me, I'd be going the opposite direction. Obviously, the host culture mentality of stand, crowd and stare hasn't quite taken hold of me.

Do you mean to say "caught in the crossfire" or "in the cross hairs"? If they're in the cross hairs, they're being aimed at, versus in the crossfire, they're just in the way when shooting is taking place.
