In the "before" photo, the tail of the aircraft was already missing -- look at the shadow. And the right wingtip was already on the ground...

As I look closer, I appear to have been fooled by the shadow the airplane is casting in the first photo -- making it look like it has a tail. I better not go into photo-recon.

Re #17: I know that holes can be fixed, but I don't see a dent in those runways. Maybe they're taxiways, but I'd have expected a few craters.

Of course if there aren't any planes to fly....

HEY, WAS THAT A MISSILE BEING FIRED BACK?

In the second movie, "Taliban troops in a trench line", what is that small white dot in the lower right portion of the screen that seems to rise toward the plane. It then fades back and left.

I have seen stingers fired at our planes twice on TV and they don't seem to change course. I think those old stingers can no longer 'aim'.

in the lower left hand side, the crater that was already there beside the runway (taxi-way?).. think that was a SAM/AAA site in another life?

No. That's the pediatric hospital.

The retributive/punitive component is important, as well as degrading materiel they could use against our effort. Even the vilest thugs understand death and destruction when it comes to visit.

"They bombed our trucks and trains in the rain and our stingers won't aim." Some plaintive songs will be heard by Talibunny convoy drivers...

That depends on how close the next bomb lands.

When I saw it the first time, I thought 'uh oh' and then I noticed the thing never changed course at all. Later a different video with 2 planes the missile did the same thing, no course changes.

Those stingers seem to be effective against hovering objects I would bet.

I think you're right. We have to remember what some of these people are like. In college I had a professor who described seeing Arabs getting out of stalled cars and kicking them...
