Robert Poos, 78, who covered the Vietnam War as a reporter for the Associated Press and later was managing editor of Soldier of Fortune magazine, died Monday at a hospice in Arlington, Va., said his wife, Bobbie. He had suffered respiratory ailments and a broken hip. A Marine during the Korean War, Poos joined the AP in 1957. Assigned to the AP's Saigon bureau in 1965, he quickly became noted for aggressive and daring combat reporting. During the January 1966 battle of An Thi, where U.S. cavalry troops were surrounded by Communist forces, Poos and AP photographer Henri Huet helped recover and stand guard over wounded GIs. Two months later, Poos was wounded in the chest when gunmen attacked a Buddhist pagoda in Danang, where he and other journalists were covering a standoff by anti-government monks.

The boy, 11 years old, slams a shell into a double-barrel 12-gauge, swivels, and shoots from the hip. Out in Lytle Creek wash, a battered plastic milk jug jolts and skitters. Before the chalky dust has settled, the boy reloads and fires again. And again. Despite the shotgun's roar, his pink-cheeked face remains a blank slate of sang-froid.

Operation Desert Storm lasted little longer than an extra-inning game at Dodger Stadium. The "Evil Empire" has shattered into more pieces than a vodka tumbler flung from the top of the Washington Monument. And back in the Middle East, despite lingering acrimony, Arab-Israeli peace talks are scheduled to open next month. As a new world order takes shape, what's a mercenary to do?

It's no surprise David Remnick sounds a little harried this week. Within his duties as New Yorker editor, he's suddenly running a war bureau, fielding constant calls from his scattered platoon of six reporters in the Middle East, such as Jon Lee Anderson, who covered the war in Afghanistan, calling from Baghdad, and Isabel Hilton checking in from Jordan. The intensity isn't quite what it was during his decade at the Washington Post, but it's close.
