Why we fight: Hawdah's story 
From Thunder 6

Several months ago the insurgents ambushed a military patrol with a ferocious combination of IEDs and direct fire. The American soldiers responded with a hellish storm of lead that blunted, and then silenced the insurgent attack. Despite their initial advantage the fight was brutally one-sided, before the soldiers ears had even finished ringing the insurgents were gone, leaving only their ruined bodies. Although American casualties were negligible, the IEDs searing blast had two tiny victims, Hawdah and her younger sister.

Read the rest of Hawdah's story here.

Thunder6 is an impeccable writer.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
