Not content with just spreading freedom and democracy in Iraq, US Soldiers are apparently teaching the locals a few tricks about capitalism, according to a report in the Army Times.

The newspaper, which also leads with a cover story on the growing number of US troops blogging from Iraq, writres that Army bloggers are taking donations to purchase equipment and are also selling branded gear. Others are obtaining funds for local charities.

The story also includes some good advice for soldiers thinking of starting a blog.
