US troops showed reporters a hideout said to have been used by an Iraqi militiaman. The soldier who had used the hideout had only a filthy blanket to protect him from the cold desert nights, and just a plastic bag of raw meat for food.

When he fled, he left behind a picture of his two children.

If I was the sort of person who cried about newspaper articles, I'd cry about that. Coalition or Iraqi. Why do soldiers have to have families? And friends? And humanity?
