I'm not sure how many of you know about the site www.liveleak.com . It's a great video site, much better than youtube. You'll find posted a lot of videos from Iraq, posted by the soldiers themselves and in many cases, as the action happens. Also great, are the cockpit videos of carrier pilots, take-offs, landings, flying, etc.
So, if the coffee hasn't worked its magic on you some morning, just click over to a fire fight in Iraq. That'll do it, believe me!
Many thanks to the men and women in uniform!
