Michael Yon receently reported about a large find of munitions in Mosul, Iraq. Some of the IED's are quite creative and I don't have a clue what the green sphere is other than I don't want to touch it for the life of me! That sphere makes me think of the evil sphere in Heavy Metal. Either one is pretty scary/nasty though.
Finding, removing and destroying such a large munitions pile is a great accomplishment. It’s a small victory in creating a stable Iraq. It helps to cut down on what can be fired at the allied forces as well as giving them the idea of what the insurgents are making so they can keep an eye out.
Michael Yon is a great free lance reporter & is well thought of among the service members he travels with. Unfortunately Michael funds his reporting himself. If you’d like to continue to see real, honest reporting visit his site and make a donation.
