The mind boggles

“Rumsfeld was saying, we need to bomb Iraq, and we were all saying no, no, al Queda is in Afganistan, we need to bomb Afganistan. And Rumsfeld said there aren’t any good targets in Afganistan, and there are lots of good targets in Iraq”
– Richard Clark on the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

  1. Remember that all those missles cost a million-plus each and have finite shelf lives. You wouldn’t want them to expire, and you woudn’t want to use them to blow up sand.

    At least now with GPS navigation they’re more likely to land in the right country.
