Hussein, with McClatchy News, writes from Baghdad:
Some U.S. commenters on the blog are indignant that the actions of U.S. soldiers should be presented in such a light -- others express sympathy with the rational, if misplaced, fear the soldiers must have been feeling.
Last spring Washington Post reporter Sudarsan Raghavan investigated the question: what is this war doing to Iraq's children?
The Iraqi doctors fear that the violence the children have experienced will pervade Iraqi society for decades to come.
We know already that U.S. soldiers bring the mental agony of war home with them.
