War open thread
Some reports of bombs falling, but things look quiet in Baghdad on CNN. It looks like surgical strikes. "Shock and awe" apparently still to come.
I'm already annoyed at CNN coverage. Amanpour was bragging that US forces will not destroy bridges this time, rather put craters on both ends to save the bridge.
No shit. They need those bridges intact to get to Baghdad! Then the anchor said "the disarmament of Iraq has apparently begun". Huh? How about, "the invasion of Iraq has begun"?
I'm not quite ready for this. I'm tuning out for a while.Posted March 19, 2003 07:07 PM | Comments (112)
