    This undated image provided by artist Richard Olsen shows his work "Hill 881." The hill was the site of one of the bloodiest Marine battles in Vietnam. The repeated image in the work was inspired by the famous Robert Capa photo of the fallen soldier in the Spanish Civil War. "I wanted to make it an endless plight ... of the Marines trying to take the hill over and over and over," Olsen says. "There's just an absurd twist to it." (AP Photo/Richard Olsen)

    Greek and EU flags wave as the temple of Parthenon is seen at the top of the hill of Acropolis in Athens on Wednesday Nov. 7, 2012. Greece's unions are holding their third general strike in six weeks to press dissenters in the country's troubled coalition government not to back a major new austerity program that will doom Greeks to further hardship in a sixth year of recession. One more day of demonstrations is planned continuing until lawmakers vote late today on the bill to slash euros13.5 billion ($17.3 billion) from budget spending over two years.

    Excavators sit idle in a nickel-mining area on the hill of Pomala village in Southeast Sulawesi province September 2, 2012. The most dramatic effect of new regulations on Indonesia's mining industry has been on mineral exports, which surged as companies fought to beat a May 6 export tax deadline and plunged thereafter. Nowhere is the human impact of the slide more visible than in the remote mining communities of Sulawesi, an island east of Borneo and the country's main source of nickel. REUTERS/Yusuf Ahmad

    Stockpiles of nickel ore are seen on the hill of Pomala village, awaiting transportation to the port in southeast Sulawesi province September 2, 2012. Small miners in particular have been hit by regulations on Indonesia's mining industry that have caused industry-wide uncertainty in the country, compounding the effects of a global commodities downturn. The most dramatic effect of the new rules has been on mineral exports, which surged as companies fought to beat a May 6 export tax deadline and plunged thereafter. Nowhere is the human impact of the slide more visible than in the remote mining communities of Sulawesi, an island east of Borneo and the country's main source of nickel. REUTERS/Yusuf Ahmad

    FILE - In this June 26, 2001, file photo, Tyler Hamilton fights his way up the hill during the 8th stage of the Tour de Suisse, the mountain time trial from Sion to Crans-Montana in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. Hamilton makes allegations in his book, "The Secret Race. Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France, Doping, Cover-ups and Winning at All Costs," that Lance Armstrong gave him an illegal blood booster at his house before the 1999 Tour de France and the two teammates compared notes on using performance-enhancing drugs as far back as 1998. The book is set to be published Sept. 5. The Associated Press purchased a copy Thursday. (AP Photo/Keystone Alessandro della Valle, File)

    In this Thursday, June 28, 2012 photo, Mukgai, a South Korean who goes by his Buddhist name and plans to become a monk, offers a prayer for buried North Korean and Chinese soldiers who died in the Korean War at the "enemy cemetery," south of the Demilitarized Zone in Paju, South Korea. Hundreds of identical wooden grave markers poke out of the grass on the hill surrounded by rice paddies and trees, North Korea's dark mountains visible in the distance. Some are rotting; some have been knocked to the dirt; most have no names. (AP Photo/Hye Soo Nah)

    In this Thursday, June 28, 2012 photo, local resident Kim Dong-hun inspects the wooden grave markers at the "enemy cemetery," where Chinese and North Korean soldiers who died in the Korean War are buried, just south of the Demilitarized Zone in Paju, South Korea. Hundreds of identical wooden grave markers stand on the hill surrounded by rice paddies and trees, North Korea's dark mountains visible in the distance. They call this the “enemy cemetery,” though of the two nations whose soldiers are buried here, only North Korea is still considered an enemy by the South. The other, China, has inspired proposals for improving this site, but bitter feelings for the North have formed a seemingly impassable barrier. (AP Photo/Hye Soo Nah)

    In this Tuesday, May 22, 2012 photo, Afghan National Army soldiers rest on an old mattress at Chinari outpost in Logar province, east Afghanistan. The months-old outpost was built after a police post at the base of the hill was attacked and destroyed by Taliban forces. Most of the troops in this unit say they enlisted because they love their country, and because the $250 monthly salaries offer a way out of poverty. They all say they dream of peace and prosperity for their homeland after 30 years of war. They also all say they are disappointed that after 11 years and billions of dollars so little development has taken place, peace has eluded them and corruption is rife among their leaders.
