Night visions: Paris Hilton and Iraq 

Crikey.com.au - Night visions: Paris Hilton and Iraq: "Now, who does that soldier remind me of?

The one, crouching under cover of darkness, whispering to the camera on CNN or BBC World or Euronews. He may have a different name, and a different rank, each time, but essentially he looks like the same man each time. The same soldier. Why? Because he has that same look in the eye.

Ah yes! Now I remember. Paris Hilton.
