Birdie Go Splat

In order celebrate Memorial Day in style, Hadji Reb popped a missile and brought down an "Iraqi" military reconnaisance plane manned by one whole Iraqi and four Americans. All dead. We're heading towards 1,700 bodies now, and that's just the official count. I suspect there's actually been a lot more killed than that; lowballing American casualties is an old Pentagon tradition.

One of the many untold stories of our little adventure in world conquest is how many aircraft the Imperial forces forces are losing to little barefoot brown men with a small bit of simple technology on their backs. Mostly helicopters, but more than one fixed-wing transport and cargo plane as well, including one B-52 during the original Big Iraq Attack back in '91.

If Imperial air power ever goes, its going to be a whole new ball game. No more hiding in the sky and dropping bombs on babies. The latest thing is armed drones and other robot fighting craft. Pretty soon they'll probably have cyborg Marines or some such. Jebus, this really is starting to look like a Star Wars movie.

And 2000 people isn't a lot for a war. Half a million Americans died in WW2 in 3 years
