Independence Day has got me all patriotic, so I just want to thank our buddy Keith and all the other soldiers on duty wherever they might be. It’s a tough, often thankless job. Thanks for doing it.

Just so you don’t feel left out of Keith’s fun, he sent the attached image, handily demonstrating what happens when you blow up 150 tons of Saddam’s munitions in one shot. (This tiny little picture doesn’t even remotely do it justice — click the image or here for a much larger and more “fireworky” version.)

As Keith says, “Better than any firework we could buy back home!!”
