How'd I miss this one yesterday? From Indian Express:
US warplanes attacked the Basra airport in southern Iraq on Wednesday night, destroying its radar system, state satellite television reported on Thursday, quoting an official spokesman.
Don't get too excited -- we're bombing stuff damn near daily in the No-Fly Zones over northern and southern Iraq. But the story does make me wonder what gave us cause to bomb a supposedly civilian radar site.
Oh, yeah -- Saddam owns all the radars.
