Pics of Operation Swarmer (Pt. 2)

Here’s the second collection of Swarmer images I’ve put together. The first is available here. There just plain isn’t a lot of high-quality (in terms of resolution) stuff available today. One from JCCC, and the rest are lower-res images from Yahoo! News.

U.S. soldiers prepare to leave for a forward location, where fighting is still going on, outside Samarra, 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad, Iraq , Friday, March 17, 2006.

Haven’t heard much about “fighting”…wonder if this caption means anything.
