The Monday "toy"

Mixed messages methinks. Love the "smiley" on the truck, but the effect is rather spoiled by the man in the mask with a machine gun.

We are in fact looking at a vehicle operated by a Polish Civilian Military Cooperation (CIMIC) unit, in AL Diwaniyah, Iraq. Believe it or not, it is a Honker Type series 42 4x4 assault vehicle, part of the Polish contribution to the coalition forces - a reminder that "new" Europe is doing its bit.
