Re: Soldier Holding (?)Dead Child

At least the soldier was trying to comfort the child before she was killed. I bet that was devestating for him to walk away, and a bomb going off killing the child.

Re: Soldier Holding (?)Dead Child

guys this pic was taken by Michael Yon - he got nominated for some prize for it
he documents the war
ive met him briefly before i knew who he was
i think this pic has copyright protection too so not sure how that works
he has a book he wrote called "Danger Close" which i just read
he is the youngest person to become a green beret or something like that and the book is about how he killed a guy right out of training and what happened
he has a website where he writes about the war
he travels around and documents a lot of what is really happening

Re: Soldier Holding (?)Dead Child

Here's the intro to his wiki:

Michael Yon (born 1964)[1] is an American author, independent reporter, columnist, photographer, and blogger. He served in the Special Forces in the early-1980s, one of the youngest soldiers to pass the Green Beret selection process, and he became a general freelance writer in the mid-1990s. He focused on military writing after the invasion of Iraq.[2] Yon has been embedded on numerous occasions with American and British troops in Iraq, most prominently a deployment with the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment (Deuce Four) of the 25th Infantry Division in Mosul, Iraq that ended in September 2005.[3]

Yon's has had vocal feuds with the United States military hierarchy, and the nature of his reports are also controversial.[2] However, Yon enjoys 'rock star' status among individual soldiers according to Brian Williams of MSNBC.[4] Yon's alternative media reporting has been mentioned by numerous mainstream media agencies, and he has won accolades from the 2005, 2007,[5] and 2008 Weblog Awards.[6] In 2008, The New York Times reported that he has more spent time embedded with combat units than any other journalist in Iraq.[1] He shifted from blogging from Iraq to blogging from Afghanistan in August 2008.[7] His work is supported primarily by donations from readers.[8]

The pic may be copywrited, but it has been reproduced in the general media to such a degree that it is for all intents and purposes in the public domain and usable for general distribution. (I.E. we're in the clear)

No problem - copywrite law pretty much operates under fuzzy logic, so only us crazy people can usually make heads or tails of it when applying it to real life situations. (I like fuzzy logic, it's so soft and warm and it purrs when I pet it)
