Two Million More Victims Of War
The wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan have been hard not only on U.S. troops sent to fight them but on the
young children they have left behind, U.S. researchers said on Monday.
Children aged 3 to 5 with a parent deployed to one of the two war zones exhibit more behavioral problems such as aggressiveness than similar children in military families without a parent deployed, according to the study.
More than 2 million U.S. children have had parents deployed to fight in Iraq since 2003 or in Afghanistan since 2001.

Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez Gerada and an army of helpers have etched
a truly giant image of Barack Obama's face into the sand at a beach in
Barcelona, Spain, battling the rain to finish the colossus just ahead of
election day. The enormous face is 140 yards long by 80 yards wide. Rodriguez
Gerada hopes to be seen from outer space and photographed on Google Earth. The
face was created using 500 metric tons of sand, gravel and white, brown and
black pebbles, at a cost of more than euro10,000 (US$13,000).
