My pictures from Iraq...

If the pictures are down or it is slow.

Heres the new backup site if the pics arent working here.



I have around 3,000 pictures from when I was in Iraq. I have yet to sort them. I keep saying I will, but I never do. I decided to start doing that. Ill post a few here and there in the process.

Please keep any political bull**** out of this thread. I dont care what your opinion is.

Please Crawl this thread.

Here we go. First round. For today...

We went to Al Kut near the end of our stay in Iraq. We refurbished water pumps. Restored the towns watershed and some other things. We also restored this British Cemetary.





We didnt go to Baghdad.


I have TONS of pictures of people, kids and camels!

More from the cemetary in Al Kut.
You can see the garbage the Fedayeen would dump in the cemetary.

Demonstration. A scary place to be. I hated these.


Not everyone is bad.


Swimming!


Local Cache. Wait until I get to the pics of different weapons cache we found!


The river serves for more then just swimming.



Thats all for today.
Enjoy

Awesome pictures. That's where recorded history started. I would love to go there to see it. That land has been traversed by some of history's most well known names.
