Iraq: Inside the surge

There frequently is an air of unreality in the rhetoric about the war in Iraq so it is useful from time to time to be reminded of what life can be like for soldiers and civilians in a war zone.

Sean Smith, award winning photographer for the Guardian, spent two months embedded with U.S. troops in Baghdad and Anbar province. He has produced a short documentary of that experience. You can view Part 1 here and Part 2 here. These are worth watching. These two clips are very sobering.
