Happy Thanksgiving, ya'll
Baghdad today

Baghdad Burning (still)


As of today, the war on Iraq has now lasted longer than the U.S. involvement in World War:  3 years, 8 months and six days, if you're keeping count.  And what's changed since March 2003?  Well, umm, let's see. It's gotten gradually worse. But other than that, nothing.

This photo was taken this afternoon after two mortars were fired on a U.S. base in eastern Baghdad. The military refused to say what happened, but by the looks of the smoke and the length the fire lasted, it appears the mortars hit a fuel dump. 

Same story, different day.

On a brighter note: I've uploaded some new photos of Iraq, and lots from Rome. Click on the Flickr icon on the top-right to see the photostream.
