True martyrs

Though I disagree with Michael Yon's take on the war, the man can sometimes write rather evocatively. Today, he posted this piece about an Iraqi who stopped a suicide bomber by grappling with him, saving the lives of several children. I won't excerpt it, as it should be read in its entirety. It truly captures the horror of the war and the heroism some Iraqis are showing in the face of that horror.

I can't bring myself to believe, however, that the man's last thoughts were of how happy he was that Bush invaded his country and forced this final choice upon him.

Regardless, salaam.
