Huge plumes of smoke are seen rising above buildings during air strikes on Baghdad March 21, 2003 in this frame grab taken from Abu Dhabi television footage. Explosions rocked Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's complex in central Baghdad on Friday, shaking the city with massive blasts. The air strike, the fiercest on the city yet seen in the U.S.-led war against Iraq, came after U.S. officials said they had launched a major air war in their effort to topple the Iraqi leader.

Thanks. We need pictures of 911 here on this thread - because these plumes of smoke will draw the sympathy of many who have already forgotten the horrors of that day.

The likely caption for this photo by the liberal media...

Meanwhile, in Ecuador, more anti-American protests continue.

Ronald McDonald bites the Ecuadorian dust.

The bunker buster that hit about 1 PM EDT was worth the price of admission. As Gen. McInerny on FNC said, "I hope our good friend, Kim Il Jong, is watching this."

look at it from their perspective. Their economy is in the toilet. They're led by semi-dictators. They reside in 3rd World conditions. Should they blame themselves and try to better their own country and people???

NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW.

Easier and more fun to blame "Yankquees."

Another photo of American compassion found on Diogenesis' thread:

Medics from 40 Commando, British Royal Marines, treat an injured Iraqi after taking the Al-Faw Peninsula, a site of important oil installations in southern Iraq, Friday, March 21, 2003, in this photograph taken through infrared Night Vision equipment. Allied troops were advancing through the deserts of southern Iraq Friday, meeting resistance from Iraqi forces in some areas and soldiers surrendering in others.

I was watching this live on Chilean television and the pictures don't do justice to the bombs as they appear on TV, and certainly the way they appear on TV is probably only a fraction of what they were like in situ.

truly a pretty impressive spectacle, but *STILL* not the 3000 bombs at once that were originally planned, maybe only a few hundred...

As it was a shame that the rest of the world could not muster the guts to take any real action against a terrorist dictator.

Agreed. But really, I was hoping the US could take out Iraq using a lot less firepower.

Barbara Olsen was a columnist, author, and news commentator of the conservative species. She was an airline passenger, departing Reagan National Airport on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. She used her cell-phone to alert the world that her flight had been hijacked by islamofascist thugs.

That picture? She's in there, somehwere.

Dead.
