LANCE MACMURRAY offers some reports from Iraq that haven’t gotten much attention.
UPDATE: CPT Niel Smith emails: “That statue is in the green zone near a traffic circle. That statue is to Iraqi soldiers killed in the Iran/Iraq war, not to US Soldiers. I know because I’ve been there. (15 months) Notice the AK-47’s and “Steel Pot” helmets on the picture, for starters. Sounds like another one of those feel good internet pictures.” Oh, well, at least this error was corrected within half an hour. Thanks to the speed of the blogosphere — and its readers!
