Yeah, I saw this. That's what I'd be doing if I were over there -- dancing with the local kids. There's another video of this guy just driving around in Iraq, listening to bhangra tunes.

Thats actually a really powerful scene...that humanizes the war I think...at least for me, personally..as someone that hasn't had that many close friends that have gone to Iraq or Afghanistan..we have a tendency to detach ourselves from it...butt a video like this definitely hits home...I was completely taken aback when I saw that first video...crazzy.

It's refreshing to see people (no matter what citizenship) trying to bring back some color and happiness to the innocent children with music (in this case, bhangra) in a country that's repeatedly been stricken by conflict...just looking at the bleek, pale background of the video makes me feel sick but very grateful and appreciative of what I have now...
