    Oh there is no need for you to babble yet you keep streaming away. I do read the news, which is why your shorthand, broken train of thought, CON jingoism is nonsensical. I thought you had some thought behind your first statements but as usual just a jerky, rambling series of questions, no-sense, and babble...

    My bad... please continue.... I have cattle to feed....

    I say that you have unreasonable expectations for how fast civilians will hear about events in a war zone. Especially when the story hits the US in the middle of the night.

    Well working for a new agency and seeing it up all night and listening to people say why aren't we saying its our guys. Since its in the region where we are located. Was the question that kept being asked.

    That would be the Chicago Tribune Newspaper.

    This is why we need a dedicated close air support aircraft; an aircraft that designed to fly close air support. Bombers are area suppression weapons. They're in no way intended for attacking point targets.

    ...and a more comprehensive version of the story was out by 11AM EST (if not earlier).

    I really do not see any great disservice by taking a few more hours to get the story out. Nor am I in a position to second-guess your editors. Why don't you go ask them, and report back to us?

    Well, considering I got in at 530am and they were saying it before I left work, and I had this up before what they sent over the Wire then. Kind of validates that out. Hence my updates.

    Leaving no real reason to get back with who you think us might be.

The U.S. is part of NATO, it could have been U.S. troops on the ground and a NATO plane, it could have been a joint operation. One just must wait. The fog of war is always there, always present. In my time one knew what was happening around 3 feet in front of you, 3 feet in back and 3 feet to either side. You never had the big picture. Headquarters relies on reports from the field, sometimes there are plenty of mix reports, reports contradicting each other. Until the fog clears, no one can know anything for certain. Then there are times when the fog never clears and one never knows exactly what happened or the reasons why and how come.

    I think the young among us have gotten too use of immediate and instant communications that supposedly solves everything. Even in today’s day and age, that is not the case on the battlefield, the fog still exists. Time for my walk, I’ll check back later.
    Thank you for not politicizing this tragedy. And good post too.
