I think that U.S. troops policy could take a lesson from this slightly older article about the deployment of the Lebanese article in the current strife:

In Dibin, a shopkeeper, who had a generator propped against a door that had been blown to the side by a blast, recounted how he had fled the town at the war's start. In the month that followed, Hezbollah fighters took food from his shop -- tuna, rice, sardines and sugar. When he returned, more than 30 receipts were waiting for him, and he was paid in full, more than $1,000, he said.

Edited: I didn't really mean troops, I meant policy. I'm sure our troops are doing the best they can given the orders they've got.

and I agree. Too bad we're too busy dehumanizing arabs in general to "get" that.
