THE MEDIA: If last night’s bombing was successful, it should be interesting to see the slant that the media takes. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the media start calling it something like “a heavy-handed end to the war”, comparing it to the atomic bomb blasts that ended World War II, or something equally hyperbolic. (Remember the Dresden riff from the first Friday of the war?)

Backseat drivers, indeed.
