This photo by Michael Yon is in the running, to me this is it. The rest are cool, but this one well it tells it's own story.

If you want to read the 1000 words to the story this pic tells go here (ok there really are not 1000 words but hey.

Anyway it's up for TIME magazine's Picture of the year.

This one shows the true nature of American servicmen. the others were nice but how in the hell can they compare to this picture? To do what that man is doing would most likely kill me. How do these guys deal with seeing things like this? When i was in basic my First Sargent told us about how he tried to hold the guts of a 2 year old in after being shot with an AK,the man was 35 and looked older than my grandpa.

Would this would be one of those mean military people that terrorize people at night? According to John Foolish Kerry.

One of the best pictures of the whole conflict. It says a lot.

Only one of two times I've seen Yon's stuff in the MSM also. Which says a lot as well. Yon deserves a lot of credit for such things.

ETA: Okay, I'm an idiot. Where's the vote button? FOUND IT. If you're confused, go to the last photo and hit "next".

Also, note that Yon is the only independent guy there. Every else is AP, reuters, etc.

The other pictures don't even compare.

While some are interesting, they aren't in the same category!

It looks like many others agree.

They say a picture is worth a 1,000....but this one leaves you speechless...

The rest are just nice photos compared.

I can see the dummycrats and their bedfellows the jihadists saying that the soldier is either cursing at a dying child or eating it. Those loons will attribute it to some insane crap like that.
