Good Morning.

This is the Daily Thread of Operation Iraqi Freedom - LIVE THREAD.

It is designed for general conversation about the events of the day. In depth discussion of events should be left to individual threads - but links to the threads or other articles is highly encouraged. This allows us to stay abreast of the situation in general, while also providing a means of obtaining specific information.

Please have mercy on us dial up limited FReepers! Limit the big graphics, post links instead. A breif description of what the graphic is would help:

To all who helped this get started and keep it running, thank you!

Special thanks to An.American.Expatriate for staring the daily threads, Mo1 for the screamer, the AdminMods for their tolerance, mhking for the video links, Ragtime Cowgirl for her Exclusive Live Transcription Service™, and, of course, Belly Girl...

Valley of the shadow of death A U.S. Army combat engineer with Psalm 23 written on his Kevlar helmet takes a short rest Friday after helping secure a two-lane bridge over the Euphrates River about 12 miles outside Baghdad

Corporal William Algarin-Mendoza, of West Palm Beach, Florida, of the U.S. Marine 15th Expeditionary Unit Fox Company 'Raiders,' mans a machine gun on a truck in the town of Nassariya in central Iraq April 4, 2003. U.S. forces swarmed over Baghdad's airport on Friday in the first ground attack of the war on Iraq's capital after armored units thrust to the city outskirts in a drive to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Nobody walking along the pavement January 21
I looked out of the window. There was no-one walking along the pavement. All of the people must have been somewhere else. The next time I looked out of the window the pavement was still deserted.

Looking out of the window December 6
I decided to stop what I was doing for a minute or two and look out of the window. Nothing much was happening outside, but I decided to carry on looking for a couple of minutes anyway. When this time had elapsed I turned away from the window and continued my other activities.

I think Levanthal will be up shortly. Fox has been with Greg because of where he is and what's happening with him right now.

Reuters - Five large explosions hit central Baghdad just after dawn. Bombing very fierce. Overnight bombing hit eastern approaches to the city. Now bombing southeast, southwest, and central Baghdad. Thick curtain of black smoke from southwest to northwest Baghdad. More oil trenches lit.
