A True Hero and the Worst Kind of Cowards

I don't know that I've seen such crystal examples of heroism (the kind that makes you believe in the compassionate heart of humanity) and the snivelling, gutless cowardice (the kind that makes world bleak and full of hate) side by side as this: a young Amish girl and some Marines. The two were side by side on the frontpage just now.

The article doesn't say if Awad, the Iraqi citizen murdered by the Marines, had children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers or cousins ... but I wonder how they feel about the US now. I wonder if that "insurgent" is ever caught whether, even then, if the net effect will be an increase or decrease in the number of people who support the use of terror to strike back at the US?
