...what a surprise...turn on your TV's, radio...
Re: WAR has begun...
The President is going to speak at 10:15 Eastern.
Here we go...
The first strike was a cruise-missile attack on an iraqui 'leadership' target.
They didn't think that the war would start tonight, but maybe something has pressured the US to do something...
Well, I'm glad its started, just means it will be over sooner. Hoping for a swift conclusion with low casualties and high accuracy on the part of the smart bombs.
He's got more balls than his father. Bush Sr. attacked at night, GW attacked at dawn.
President Bush is talking now. Sounds very good so far.
you want war?
be careful what you wish for.
He reads pretty well, eh?
Don't get me wrong, I voted for him. For that reason I can pick on the guy.
By the way Doesn't he look like Alfred E. Newman from Mad Magazine?
He does... although not completely. I've been trying to figure out a person (or character) that he looked like.
Thanks for posting this thread otherwise I would have missed it. Let's hope it's a quick one.
Has anyone else noticed the eerie similarities between this situation and the Dune movie and miniseries?
Desert planet, desert country
Arrakis, Iraq (say them out loud)
and a couple others I can't think of at the moment...
It sounds like there will be cruise missiles during the day, and an all out attack later on in the day, and most likely during the night. The US has focused mainly on night attacks, and their equipment is best designed for the night. The US basically "Owns the night".
I still think it's unbelievable that I can turn on the TV and watch the war *live* as if I'm watching a sporting event. (I don't mean that with any disrespect to our soldiers who i hope all come back alive).
Who will be this wars *Scud Stud*?
Nevery thought about that. That's pretty cool.
yeah, it is a bit disturbing when some commentators say things like 'game plan', 'first round' etc...at least there is no commercial breaks !
This first attack was meant for Saddam, according to the pentagon. They hoped to take him out before the start of the war.
The US is serious now. We just fired more than a dozen cruise missiles and precision guided weapons at the leader of a country.
It'll take some time to find out for sure if we got him...
In the origional Dune movie (which I watched Sunday) one of the main characters was called Emperor Shaddam IV.
Probably doesn't mean anything, but when I watched Dune on Sunday and heard those names, a sort of chill went throughout my body.
OK, they bombed a bunker that they believed that Saddam and some other leaders were hiding out in.
The F-117's were outfitted with bunker-busting bombs...
I'D pay good money to see that!
See Bush ride Sand Worms?! Yeehaaa! Oh, that's right! He's from Texas so he should do all right.
Re: I'D pay good money to see that!
Keep watching Children of dune.
there is going to be two waves of attacks tonight
the first one not much *appeared* to happen to the viewers. the second one will probably occur when most americans would be asleep
psychological warfare, people
Awww man, I'm going to miss it all.
