Here’s more Scott Nelson imagery from Baquba.
Following yesterday’s shot of a U.S. fair-haired detonation machine, how is this for a follow up? Maybe the military thinks that taunting the enemy is a fair trade off it it fires up our flagging crusaders?
And then, could someone please tell me where The Times is going with this caption:
During the operation, Specialist Paul Goodyear wore a headband bearing a passage from Psalm 91: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”
Talk about holy war, sounds like the (online) newspaper of record got sucked in, chapter and verse.
