CBS News just broadcast a heart-rending report from Iraq. US Marines mistakenly destroyed an SUV filled with a family or Iraqi farmers, killing several of them. CBS was on the scene with the Marines, who came to help them with their dead. Amazingly, the surviving family held no anger toward the Marines, and thanked them for their help. One of the men of the family told the reporter that they understand why the Marines made this mistake, because Saddam is forcing civilians to take this route in hopes that Allied forces will make exactly this kind of mistake. In other words, these poor people, who had just seen their kinsmen burned to death by American bombs, blamed Saddam for the incident. Amazing.
