Where is the link to this story? I know I read it yesterday but can't seem to find it today. Is this another WMD story that will just vanish? Great pictures, though.

Great pix, again. I just love those pix of the kids smiling and interacting with the coalition troops.

You might consider adding this archive link. These pix and Thomas More's efforts to archive are priceless. Thanks to both of you.

I just loved to see those beautiful girls with those high kicks. I'll bet no man will ever keep THEM down again!

BTW, it is amusing to me that already there is a "nice" comment about the older woman signing the documents. She's almost as ugly as Mad Albright, but nobody will ever say that; because she is on the "right" side. I point this out merely to once again protest how some FReepers say such horrible things about how people look. It isn't the outside that matters; it's the inside. Unless it's one of the Clintons, of course. LOL But the Clintons don't count; they are ugly inside AND out!

Anyway, thanks so much for posting these pictures. I enjoyed them all.

The Aphid warhead is actually encased in depleted uranium, which would allow it to penetrate armor... that's what set off the detectors... they aren't full of radioactive material or anything.

That "radioactive uranium" wouldn't be anything like those "depleted uranium" pieces that we use, would it?

I jsut want to make certain we are not portraying a double standard -

IF this is different (as in the uranium in the Russian missiles is actually highly radioactive) then I can see the big deal. If it is essentially nothing different than the material we use in armor piercing rounds, then it's not such a huge issue.

Now - where were these missiles found? If in Iraq - how did they get them and how old are they? They certainly don't look like the "antiques" found earlier in the war.

"Saudi border guards said they arrested nearly 150,000 infiltrators and smugglers during the past three months."

That is an enormous number of arrests, especially considering Saudi Arabia's small population...

Not really a dirty bomb, but the 'heavy' material was used to help penetration into armor plating on aircraft.

You're right. The warhead of the AA-8 contains depleted uranium. It's radioactive, but nothing like you'd need for a "dirty bomb". The headlines are misleading.

Judy, what is on the inside is what makes a woman beautiful. Physical looks may make one attractive, but a soul full of snakes, lies, and cold stone prevents one from having true beauty.
