The BUFFs are in the air...
B-52 bombers have left thier bases in England headed, no doubt, for Iraq. Considering these things can carry tons of cruise missiles and/or bombs, Baghdad is going to be a pretty unhealthy place in the next few hours. They left just after 10:00 a.m. GMT (about 5:00 a.m. EST), and with six-hour flight time, they should be hitting thier targets any time now.
Gee, you think?
Catch this headline from Reuters: Battle for Iraq Not the Pushover It Appears.
Television images of U.S. tanks tearing across desert sands make the invasion of Iraq look as easy as punching through a soggy paper bag, but the toughest battles of this war are yet to come.
I am SO glad we have Reuters to keep us informed. Sheesh.
