I Think the AP Missed Something Here
While the Yahoo caption to this photo says:
US Army soldiers take rest during patrol in Baghdad suburb, Monday Nov. 17, 2003. U.S. forces have reacted to the increasing attacks in which dozens of Americans and their allies have died by mounting a massive show of force in central and northern Iraq
I think they missed the (*cough*) “editorial comment” of the soldier in the foreground:
Excellent work, soldier!
UPDATE: Unbeknownst to me, LGF covered this yesterday. I feel so behind the curve…
