I'm sure we've all been reading that the USofA is in the middle of a humongous arial assault in Iraq. We're boming the heck out of stuff.
Or, you know, not.
In fact, there were no airstrikes and no leading insurgents were nabbed in an operation that some skeptical military analysts described as little more than a photo op. What’s more, there were no shots fired at all and the units had met no resistance, said the U.S. and Iraqi commanders.
It's not just Bush posing with a plastic turkey any more, huh? Now we're using the entire military to produce the illusion of machismo?
Later note - By the way. I'm not objecting to our failure to conduct a Fallujah-style slaughter of thousands of people. Just wondering at how quickly "American might" became a Hollywood stage set.
