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).
