These are pics on the way to and at FOB Danger. I There was downtime, so I finally had time to explore. One interesting note: There are several pictures of a mosque and, then, several other pictures of what looks sort of like a Biblical temple ruin. The ruin allegedly is the oldest known Christian site in Iraq. Saddam had a mosque built on top of it to show the superiority of Isam over Christianity. This set also features a pic of Qusay's bombed out house. FOB Danger is a little unusual in that it has a high speed freeway through the middle of it. They had to put up high chain link fences because insurgents were lobbing bombs out of cars. I also have lots of shots of the inside of Saddam's Palace, including one of Saddam's bathrooms. The opulence here is unbelievable esp. when contrasted with abject povery just outside its walls. People were allegedly shot just for looking at the grounds.
