9 Propositions on the U.S. Air War for Terror

The monotonous regularity of the bland unconcerned reports .."five civilians, including a judge, Munaf Mehdi, were reportedly killed and ten wounded from strikes by "fixed-wing aircraft" in a "battle with suspected al-Qaeda Sunni Arab militants" ....."A U.S. F/A-18 carried out a "precision strike" against a house in Basra, reportedly killing at least three civilians, two men and an elderly woman, while burying a father, mother, and young boy in the rubble on April 3rd.
In a sense we should be eternally grateful to the scion of the Royal family, who equipped with a wide grin and casual headgear pronouncing he does "bad things to bad people" was happy to participate in a PR bullshit scenario in which he called up bombers to unload their massive and lethal ordnance to be caught in grainy detail as a military "snuff" movie to entertain the TV news viewers worldwide.
