They'll get over it...

Upyernoz has a rather sobering tale taken from NPR, about soldiers in Iraq and our efforts to improve relations with the locals. It's sobering both in what is actually depicted -- a blithe disregard for the negative effects of everyday operations -- and in the way it tells the story without actually talking to any Iraqis about their feelings. Of course, it's hard not to imagine their feelings about the events portrayed (and he points out that we had a Revolution over some of those same abuses here).
