Death and Destruction

If you didn't see it, read yesterday's NYT front page article about a family's fight, and ultimate loss, to keep their home in Baghdad in the face of sectarian power struggles. There was one death - the family's matriarch was murdered for seeking the protection of US forces against the sectarian violence - but it removed three generations of the Sunni family from their home in a primarily Shiite neighborhood.

The number of dead in Iraq only begins to tell the story of the destruction that war has brought to the country.
