Well, I’m not sure if it was actually a rocket. The article says rockets were fired, and then they say that a mortar sailed over a U.S. ship. They probably just don’t know the difference between rockets and mortars. They’re the stupid media, why the hell should they care if their content is accurate? They both explode, so what’s the difference?
I kinda find this amusing, because who would be stupid enough to launch a rocket attack against U.S. naval ships during this period in time? Patrick, over at Clarity and Resolve turned me on to this first.
Riehl World View has a few updates. Dan says the attacks were caused by “Katyusha rockets fired from a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Aqaba”. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Those guys must have some huge ass balls.
Mad Dog Vinnie at The Jawa Report filed this under “Not A Wise Thing To Do At This Point In History”. It would be a wise thing to do if you want to die, not that many people want to die. They’re just lucky they are sucky shots and missed.
