Military cluelessness at the Times of London 
The Times of London notes that the US and UK increased the number of bombs dropped on Iraq in 2002 and thinks that that's evidence that Blair and Bush were deliberately increasing the number of bombs dropped in an effort to provoke the Saddam regime into a cassus belli.

No, the possibility that Saddam was issuing orders to his air defense units to be more aggressive in trying to knock down an American aircraft couldn't possibly have anything to do with it, and doesn't warrant any mention in the story, despite the fact that reports of renewed Iraqi aggressiveness date back well before 9/11, and despite the fact that Saddam had actually shot down an unmanned aircraft.

But, you know, it's kinda hard to attack an anti-aircraft battery if they keep their radar acquisition systems turned off.

Not that these twits ought to be looking any more deeply into the story or anything.

But had they done any sort of research, they would have found that Saddam Hussein had offered a 1 million dollar reward to anyone who could shoot down an American plane as far back as November 2001, and Iraqi forces were taken a distinctly more aggressive stance vs. allied jets.

I mean, c'mon, people. Do your frigging jobs.

Splash, out


Well at least they didn't announce
the death of a soldier who did'nt appear to have died after all. I am surprised you even dare to continue this blog after such a huge faulure. And YOU are telling people to do their frigging jobs?????
