Oh Dio, it breaks my heart to see these people risking their lives to flee their homes .... running TO the coalition forces.

And people say WE are evil? WE are doing this?

LOOK AT THE CONDITION OF THEIR CLOTHING AND TEETH! And Hussein has (had!) HOW MANY palaces????

I've run out of patience with the peace niks. They're so blinded they cannot see.

AMERICA ROCKS

One finger of one America hero exceeds the entire moral weight of the UN and EU.

Just so. But the gunner in that pic is one of our British cousins, letting fly with his L7A1 7,62 NATO GPMG *Gimpy* medium machinegun.

No matter. Same side, same enemies.

Saddam has stolen the wealth of the country and has brutalized his own citizens. Bless you, Dio, for showing the world the truth.

Good Point. Thank you for the important correction.
More errors today than usual from the rush to get this out to counterbalance the irritating disappointing media.

----> The Poles and Australians deserve kudos here, too.

So many lines of code .... so many errors. Mea culpa.


BTW, look at this girls face on the right when she finally vectors to freedom.

The Coalition Rocks.

The Iraqi people, without any shadow of doubt, now know who is for them, and who wants to destroy them...

"Iraqi plane, located at H2 airfield in western Iraq"
I was not aware they had anything serious in the way of aircraft. The photos are beyond great, dio.

Tears fill my eyes
Tears of joy
As I see the liberating power
Of free men armed
Steeled to the sacred task
Of crushing evil's head

The soldier rescuing the woman is from Georgia.

A caption from today's AJC, "Soldiers from the Army's A Company 3rd Battalion 7th Infantry Regiment approach an injured woman who was caught in the crossfire with Iraqi forces over the Euphrates River. Capt. Chris Carter of Watkinsville led the rescue effort."

Quote from Chris' father, Michael Carter, "He is the kind of man every parent in America would be glad to have s a son."

No matter. Same side, same enemies.

I thought that was a British soldier, but the belt-fed is much tougher to ID than their 5.56mm bullpup, especially when as seen through NV goggles. Speaking of firearms, there don't seem to be any major complaints popping up regarding either the US or UK weapons performance. After that brouhaha over the Brit rifles last year, that's encouraging.

Now, what sort of sniper rifle is that Dragoon putting to use up above?

In Baghdad...pre and post strike photos.

Dayum. The trees around them aren't even singed. How can anyone look at that and then come up with some story about a missle hitting a marketplace?
