Uh, things aren't looking too good, POW's taken already and we have only just begun this war in Iraq. They were all later released, including Jessica whom the marines rescued. The actions of the soldiers were legitimate. At home we are getting this as news and photo opportunities that play on our sentimental values as if our country was some 1950's black and white war movie. It demeans the true courageous acts of the soldiers who are not in Iraq as extensions of photo opportunities for the glorification of George W Bush and his compadres. They are in Iraq as live human beings and in real danger. Their acts of bravery are intentional courage.
