We get such a small amount of news of what is really going on, and much of that is distorted. Then the analysis starts by the folks like Greta on Fox. All is lost. She was so negative last night I remembered why I quit watching her. A military guy there told her she was a great laywer, but a horrible war commentator. Fortunately, we have great people on FR who grab news from around the world and get it to us.

The expectations of a 3 day war were a set-up by someone, somewhere.

The problem with "embedding" is that these clowns can't see the forest for all the trees. We are witnessing the biggest ASS-KICKING in history, yet they reporters call a couple troglodytes in a pickup taking on a M1A1 "Major Resistance".

The expectations of a 3 day war were a set-up by someone, somewhere.

The person talking with Greta made a very good point: On the first day of Operation Iraqi Freedom, there were +3k known Iraqi targets targets that needed to be hit. The combined US / British Air Force, Army, Marine and Navy air assets have been flying an average of +2k combat missions per day since the beginning. Now, we are down to around +250 known targets and still flying the same average number of combat missions per day.

Greta perceives this information as meaning that the war is becoming ineffective; however, our forces are now concentrating our firepower on fewer targets that have to be hit over-and-over like troop and armor concentrations. This "battlefield preperation" will make things easier for ground force movement. As fewer targets are identified, more "attention" can be brought to bear until nothing remains.

Greta needs to keep looking for the "real killer"...
