Nice pictures and I'm glad you survived. I know people in personal who are in the Dutch army and are doing exactly the same thing. Not in Basra but in Uruzgan. Great quality and really interesting to see.

Great pictures FREKI. Although I never agreed with the war, I must say that must have been one unique experience that'll be hard to forget.

Fascinating photos, thanks for posting. And the proportion of urban content wasn't too bad at all.

No, well other than some Spec Ops and the contingency protecting our embassadors and commanders up north, there aren't any left.. ( I doubt it counts more than 50 men total )

The southern part we had have been fully handed over to the Iraqi athorities who's doing a good job - they even managed to crack down on Al Sadr's network by themself!

Wow when I did click on this thread I've never thought to find pictures from irak like yours. I'm really impressed, they are really good pictures!

Buena suerte desde Argentina!
