I suspect that the timing of these 40 tons of bombs dropping has something to do with the recent attack in Kabul, that killed a "Great, great American soldier". Hopefully the Taliban think about this from time to time.

Can people hide in bushes from FLIR equipped aircraft?

I don't think so, as this video so magnificently demonstrates. GET SOME!!!



And this one...





"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Probably "Bomber" Harris, too.

Good job, troops! On this day (and every day) we need to give those jihadists Hell.

I was a little disappointed. Would have liked to have seen more bombs. My OCD kept telling me they missed a spot.


...that I will support
and defend...

Quite the opposite, in my opinion. No way anyone could find all the pieces, they were sent to permanent hiding.

Hope there were a few Mark 77 incendiaries in the mix.

Sounds like some expensive bombs. What ever happened to good old Napalm?

Almost as satisfying as an Arc light strike, almost.

No flight, the Iraqi SF dudes on the ground moved in to assess. I'd like to know the BDA as well (if any).

You think there’s no flight BDA? I assure you there most certainly is 24/7 coverage watching in HD.

You can see someone hiding in a bush with the basic FLIR camera. It shows heat. I would expect a military grade flir to have no problems seeing it.

Yep.

Why virgins? The Daesh fear comparison, and for good reason.



“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
