They say one was hurt more than the other but don't say who it was.

Preston Merchant , Dec 11, 2003; 03:03 p.m.

from another report:

"Weisskopf was severely wounded when he apparently climbed onto the hood of a Humvee and attempted to throw back the grenade. Witnesses said his actions most likely saved lives. Nachtway was less severely injured. Time said both were in stable condition and were awaiting transfer to a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany."

either one is a terrible news. can someone stop this non-sense?

"can someone stop this non-sense?" sic

Only Bush can.

That's bad news, I think he is an exceptional photographer. But a war photographer getting wounded in a war, that's an occupational hazard... I'm sure he knew risks he was taking.

I don't think Bush can stop this, even if foreign troops left there would be a civil war. Only Saddam can start the end of this conflict, and he's not likely to do that voluntarily.

I don't think Bush can end this conflict. Even if the foreign troops left there would probably be civil war. Saddam has to be removed and WITH the help of all those other Arab nations who are just sitting around watching what's going on, the Iraqi's can eventually move on from this situation.

I really don't think Bush is in control anymore.

>>I really don't think Bush is in control anymore. <<

if you ask me: bush is never in control but he is responsible for the mess.
