Seems like the press is getting a little lazy over there.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Three U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter were killed in two separate incidents by explosive devices Monday near Baghdad, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

In one incident, a soldier with the Army's 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment was killed west of Baghdad. Another soldier from the unit was wounded.

On Monday night, two soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division and their Iraqi interpreter were killed south of Baghdad near Haswah. Two other soldiers were wounded. No further details on the deaths were available.

2. The caption is true
A debate in the Japanese Parliament, or Diet, on whether to provide military assistance to the US in Iraq. The gentleman at the bottom of that pile dared to question the 'honor' of any individual who wasn't in favor of the assistance.

In Japan, questioning honor is basically like spitting in someones face.
