    Not something we can argue about, but I feel like this is a story everyone should read.

    BAGHDAD, Jan. 28 — Staff Sgt. Hector Leija scanned the kitchen, searching for illegal weapons. One wall away, in an apartment next door, a scared Shiite family huddled around a space heater, cradling an infant.

    And as with so many days here, a bullet changed everything.

    Thank you Bethin.
    Our soldiers and the people of Haifa Street are suffering now and won't be able to forget.
    War is probably worse than we can imagine.

    I think you're right about that. It's something we can't understand unless we experience it.
