You're so much easier to deal with when you come out into the open...

CNN:

Waves of B-52 bombers pounded a convoy of Iraqi military vehicles overnight before they could reach the lead elements of the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division in Najaf, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, CNN's Walter Rodgers reported Thursday.

Air traffic controllers with the U.S. Air Force told Rodgers, embedded with the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry of the 3rd Infantry, that the bombers pounded the convoy "almost into oblivion."

Brooks said that the Iraqi force was smaller than initial intelligence reports suggested and that most of the force was destroyed.

HOOOOOOOAH!

That's what I'm talking about. I'm glad they are slowing down a bit, and letting air recon support out in front.

This is WAR, we're not baking a cake. Someone please explain this to all the media idiots who are wondering why it's taking so long. Ridiculous!

Well... it helps a lot that the sandstorms subsided... that column would not have posed such a threat, if we'd have been able to send our A-10's and Apaches up...
I kinda think that's why they were out in the open to begin with...using the sandstorms as cover knowing we couldn't hit them from the air....
I guess they just weren't fast enough! :whew:

I do love the A-10...talk about a blue collar workhorse. It's the Zach Thomas of warplanes...it ain't pretty, and it ain't fast, but what it hits, it knocks the crap out of!!:cool: I remember you could see them practicing air strikes from the ranges at Ft Drum.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister in a quote to the Arab news agency "Ali-ar" said, "We are happy to report that every single imperialist missle and bomb that made contact with our Tanks or other vehilces was destroyed..."

The statement wasn't stupid...it was a freaking JOKE! I'll now totaly destroy that joke by disecting it for you....The joke was, that the Iraqi's would try and SPIN the fact that their convoy was destroyed by claiming that THEY were able to destroy the incoming missiles by having them impact their vehicles...it's a joke...it was funny...it's dead now, but it was nice while it lasted....:confused:

Yes sorry I meant as a joke because of the way the Iraqi officials spin stuff... There was a clue in the name of the News Agency I quoted:
"Ali-ar" move the "li" over and you have "A-liar"... :lol:

LMAO!!! I took it as a joke... but the fact that what the Iraqi's claim is sooo far out in left field that we could take such a rediculous statement and credit it to them, and have people (and fairly smart people at that) believe it really says something about the Iraqi Propoganda doesn't it. :lol:
