Let’s go to the video
: I’m watching the Centcom briefing and now it’s time for the AV guy to show the videos.
These images are so different from the ones we saw in 1991 and in Afghanistan.
It’s not the big bang, the wowy woosh.
It’s a tank here, a missle battery there, an occasional building. They’re going out of their way, with before-and-after pictures, to show the extreme targeting of military objectives. Collateral damage is the no-no of the war (though, as they’re saying right now, it’s obviously hard to tell the difference when a civilian bus filled with people in civilian dress stops to join a battle and everybody on that bus is armed).
