Toward the beginning of this run.... The Taliban prisoner being released... The one in "mauve" robes....

His robes remind me of my chintz breakfast room curtains.

Sorry.... Couldn't resist.

Thanks as usual for a great job.

Thanks for the excellent photos as always, Dio (and the ping as well)! Those Pak troops carry AUGs?? Good to see someone shooting those AT-4s instead of just packing them around. Nice ending to this post - Let's Roll!

Incredible selection Diogenesis. Sad to see the women all covered again. I hope that some are able to walk around freely. It may take awhile, but I think they will finally get there.

The night vision pics are great, thanks for posting them.

You do such a good job.

In Kandahar, at the clinic. The sign reads: 'Women's entrance'.

When Saddam does the full Mussolini from a Baghdad lamppost, can we pose him in a burqa for posterity?

The pic of the Tajik parents and baby is reminiscent of artistic depictions of the Holy Family on its flight to Egypt. It IS a very charming photo and shows some humanity in a not too charming place.

Fantastic!!!!!! ..... as usual.

Thank you for doing this. I know it takes a lot of time to post all the pics but it is greatly appreciated by many. There are so many things we learn from these threads that we'll never see in the media!

Wonderful shots. Thank you so much for your efforts to bring so many fabulous and informative shots to us.

I especially loved the painting of the mosque! Terrific. But am sorry about the Burkas....hope the women, themselves, want to wear them out of a certain comfort and tradition, not because the UN or current government are forcing them to do so.

at least 110 Pakistani Taliban prisoners released to Pakistan today

My understanding is that if they are truly Pakistani, they are not likely to be Tallibunnies, but rather Al Qaida. Talliban were/are almost all Afghans of various tribes, mostly southern ones, from near the Pak border.

Then we can sell pictures of the event to raise money for the next round against the terrorists and those who support them. I know I'd pay good money for a video clip, or even a still photo of that event. The pictures, at least the stills, can also be dropped around the Jihadist areas to "encourage the others".

Thanks again for a cool photo essay! The one SF guy in the white cap- he's loaded up for serious fun- I counted at least four ammo pouches, at least 390 rounds of 5.56 plus whatever pistol ammo and grenades he's carrying. A standard combat load for a normal infantryman (sans extra pouches) is 210 rounds.

Sounds right.

How about letting the families of the victims of 911 have
remote control of that.

I'm always a little overwhelmed by the photos, too. So much! But first of all, Diogenesis, thanks for the WTC and Pentagon photos. Those should be on the front pages of every publication in the country for the month of September. Lest we forget.

In the photos of our military, I'm always amazed at how gorgeous our military men are!!!!! Not only the greatest warriors, but the HANDSOMEST WARRIORS!!!!!
