Pictures on flickr from one soldier in Iraq; via the Iraq tag; via a friend.

Please add another post, his face is annoying me — he was an idiot to get involved in the forces in the first place, so that dopey-scared expression he has, elicits absolutely no sympathy at all.

And his sunset/sunrise pictures suck, perhaps they are special to an urbanite's eyes, but in the countryside I see the most amazing dawns each and every day. It must be said that the colours evidence a fair amount of pollution in the area.

Wow, there were a lot more than sunrise/sunset pictures, as far as I could see, and even those seemed less about beauty or "specialness" and more about giving people an account of the place and the humans in it. Some people have a host of their own problems, I guess, but still must gripe (jealously?) about others who have found a way of coming to terms with their paths. And it's the griping, not the coming to terms, that I personally feel is "idiotic."

Yes, I do sound harsh, and I didn't want to.
'Coming to terms' is not a good way to put what the world is going through thanks to GWB,

Serving in the military is not by definition idiotic.

re: sunsets. The region is known for sandstorms, which put particulate in the air, which make for pretty sunsets. But there was no intention to showcase his sunrise/sunset pictures. I'm sure yours are even better! Please put them up on flickr.
