Bought a copy of Esquire to read Don McCullin's Iraq War Diary.

Don is scathing of the whole experience. He says the war was "a waste of two months of my life. It was good in just one respect: throughout my time here, I never saw a single dead or badly injured human being." Just as well he didn't spend more time around us, then.

McCullin -- who was staying in the same hotel as us in Sulaymaniyah -- recounts the day of the accident. I've scanned an excerpt below:
