In the Battle Zone

That's the subtitle they currently have up on MSNBC. A live broadcast from a reporter who's on the frontlines with some marines trying to take a bridge, just south of Baghdad. Some snippets I couldn't resist sharing:

The news anchor asks the reporter if they're on the offensive or defensive and he responds, “The Iraqi's are in buildings, so they have an advantage. We're in vehicles out in the open.”

The news anchor asks, “How much danger are you in?” He responds, “Well, if I'm hit with a shell, I'm dead.”

When talking about the protection on the vehicles, “These troop transports have incredibly thick armor, just as it says in the Tom Clancy book.”

A marine shouts over to the reporter, “We're gonna move forward to protect your photographer!”
