Two Stories: One Heroic the Other Comic

Just two stories from the War on Terror. The first is pretty tragic but also very inspiring. Basically a Navy SEAL threw himself on a grenade to protect his fellow soldiers. A real hero, IMO:

The other is rather Comic. Apparently Canadian soldiers attempting to infiltrate Taliban forces have run into an unexpected problem: a forest of marijuana plants! It seems the plants provide good thick cover which cannot be easily destroyed by fire since they are so full of water. And when the Canadians did get some of the plants to burn... well they had some problems with their soldiers downwind :P
