We’re Still at War: Photo of the Day for May 18, 2010

 

Bravo Company Marines decide how much money they are willing to part with in exchange for various items offered by local villagers here on May 9. In addition to fresh bread and canned beverages, the younger locals also put hand-carved sling shots and hats up for sale to the visiting Marines who were in the area conducting a combat logistics patrol in support of the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
