Do they love their children too?
Newsweek - The Secret War
Every Iraqi school searched�more than 100�contained a weapons depot. In one Baghdad school, Marines unearthed scores of black leather vests stuffed with explosives and ball bearings. Empty hangers suggested that some of the lethal vests were on the backs of would-be suicide bombers.

Schools. Every school.

Okay, "every school searched." I'm skeptical enough to notice that. They could have picked their search targets based on the probability of finding weapons. If their resources were limited, I rather hope they did.

But I'm parent enough not to care. One school-as-weapons-depot is one too many.
