Here's one that hit me. Now I dont particularily agree with this war, but this I think illustrates the character of the good men and women that are being asked to fight it.

This story is reported in a medical newspaper by Andrew Doyle MD MAJ MC an army doctor.


It seems an Iraqi child was playing with a grenade. A U.S soldier saw this and kicked the grenade away, but it unfortunatley went off. The soldier had his leg amputated at a field hospital in Iraq and was flown to Germany where he died. The child was treated at a combat support hospital (it doesnt say if she made it or not, I would liek to think she did).

Interesting contrast to those who believe that they will get great reward in the afterlife for killing children on purpose. It's really hard to understand how anyone could feel that way.
