Well, it was a nice thought. (See previous post.) I was actually starting to half-believe all the happy horseapples about how we maybe killed SH with that first attack on the bunker and the regime was going to come apart quickly as a result. If that were the case, or even a reasonable probability, the current big bombing raid on Baghdad wouldn’t seem to make much sense.
I’m not sure what pushed the button; maybe the oilfield fires? Anyway, now we get to see how smart the smart bombs really are.
As usual, the politicians are sanguine, and the results are likely to be sanguinary.
