The majority in the mass-media only wish the general public to view the chaos, evil & even tragic deaths of Coalition troops caused by Islamic terrorists via 'homicide' car bombings, triggered by demented, death driven mad men. Free Iraqis are also putting their lives on the line everyday in their brave service in the Iraqi Army & police forces. It's high time the public is shown Coalition forces for all the various humanitarian assistance they have been offering the normal freedom loving people of Iraq. The very real sacrifice Coalition troops are making every day of the week will be shown here frequently. If there are those which would like to pool photo research just drop me a line. ========================================================================

Thank you for posting. All one needs to know about the MSM's bias is that Lynndie England's the best-known soldier, in this conflict.

Outstanding pictures, Thank you.
"I'm sure you'll be outraged by these photos of American soldiers not killing Muslim children"
Ahem...point of order, but which American soldiers are these then?
I'm sure the US military are doing lots of similar good things in Iraq but there ain't many in these pictures.
amazing pictures. thanks for posting them.
BUMP! Pictures speak a thousand words. .....Nice portrait of the global coalition.
Point taken! The Brits are not killing the Muslim children.
the dutch bit says the dutch commander and the other guy laid the first stone. they must have been building something...
You have proven that this is nothing but a war for oil and imperialist aggression by the Bush cartel.
(The previous statement would be the bizzaro DU, MSM, & Hollywood reaction of your pics. Reality being verboten in the fever swamps of the moonbats.
BUMP for distribution at work
we need to bring our allies to the table
I've met with foreign leaders...
Fantastic collection of coalition heroes! Thank you for this thread.

Great photos from what our troops are doing in Iraq ping...
A hearty lift of the alfa6 lid for posting these pics.
All these pictures CAN'T be from Iraq.
Why, there is more than just American soldiers in them and everybody knows the whole world is against this war </sarcasm>
Really wonderful pictures...Thank you so much!
Dutifully suppressed by our media who never met a dictator it didn't love and admire.
I am truly humbled by the Men and Women that make up our Coalition Forces.
May God Bless them and keep them safe as they bring the fight to the enemies of Freedom.
Godspeed to all of them...
Thanks for posting these beautiful pictures. It's wonderful to see the "bribed and coerced" as they really are. Screw the media!
The photos of all of the Iraqi kids tells the entire story. THEY are the future of Iraq.
It's also good to see so many countries in Iraq. I imagine many countries are there quietly trying to get combat experience for their troops.
Cute picture of the puppy following the soldier. I read in Time magazine that moments later the soldier gunned the puppy down.
So many nations! Amazing photos--thanks.
