We always liked the "Smile you're on candid claymore" sort of message.

PC has definately taken the fun out of the military.

So why is that guy crossing right behind it!

Chicken escort duty, but the bird is just out of shot by his feet.

I guess the signs only apply to cars... if you can read the sign at 100m that is.

The could use a big wide "Bugger Off" or its equivalent in Arabic, but that might also be considered a "Fire RPG Here" sign.

Gooner,

The guy walking past is an Iraqi policman I think (dark skin, blue shirt, body armour, Kalashnikov).

Technically he's a 'good guy', though given the infiltration of the police force by insurgents, it's a pretty shaky assumption.
