Not much Freeping for me today. One of my co-workers is being treated in the hospital for decompression sickness (not that serious, but it required recompression) so I'll have to take over her chores as well as my own.

Just writing to tell you again how much I appreciate your initiative to start these threads. Well done!

Praying for the success and safety of the soldiers in the IDF.

The first missile fired is the pathfinder; a spotter in the target city sends back the coordinates of impact and incremental adjustments are made for succeeding launches.

There are random factors, differences in rocket performance, rpesence of Israeli aircraft, etc. to deal with.

Nasrullah probably has a sophisticated computer program and database to cover his launch sites, targets and rocket characteristics.

His aim gets better and better with time...

Ziene. OK I have depleted the what I learned last nite in lesson one. And I don't think I am going to be able to stay awake for the second lesson. I did think of two questions: one, have you ever uploaded anything to a site like YouTube? and two, have you ever met Steve Harrigan of Fox news? He's back over there and is one good reporter.

"A man climbs on the dome of a mosgue, part of a religious complex that USED to consist of the mosque and a religious school"

What a beautiful sight...should be made into a postcard and mailed to every mosque in the US.

I have not heard from my colleagues that live in Beirut.

They may be dead but that is okay with a lot of our FR brethren.

Collateral damage.

Ughhhhh!

I've never uploaded anything to YouTube. I have seen a few things on there, though.

Ah, so the reporters are trickling back into Iraq? I haven't met Steve Harrigan, although I've seen him on Fox plenty of times. The Baghdad media HQ is not far from where I am, though. Perhaps I'll pay a visit. ;-)

I give the IDF credit for what appears to be a methodical approach; the Hezebola beast has grown for six years and it will take time to map out its entrails. Progress is cumulative and "each link connects to two more".
