Those laser guided attacks on targets during the Iraq war missed every single target they were supposed to get. Saddam? Nope, wasn't there or in any of the buildings they blew up. Chemical Ali? Nope, wrong again. Who was there? Mostly innocent Iraqis who had the crap blown out of them because some informant thought he knew who was in the building plus sometimes they hit the building next door too. Those missiles work great. Unfortunately, the humans who select the targets don't have a bloody clue.

I like hiphop's idea regarding the CIA training the Iraqi secret service so they can infiltrate the terrorist groups. I mean, John Smith from Omaha, can't sneak into a terrorist cell claiming to hate America, but an Iraqi can. This strategy worked for the Brits against the IRA once they realized that military force was not getting them anywhere.

Thank you. Some say I should work for the Pentagon, but consider that I have critisized the administration and American Secret Services, so I might have to wait for their offer for a very long time

Actually the assumption that a white man cannot infiltrate these groups is flawed; we have plenty of Islamic converts who operated within these groups very effectively including caucasians.

A_Wanderer apparently you also want to work for the Pentagon I´m sure they like your ideas on Islamofascism.

They only go astray when there is heavy cloud cover or smoke blocking the target from being sighted. GPS bombs rarely if ever go off course. There is no perfect bomb, but the GPS guided bomb is damn close.

Oh, and yes, given the right conditions laser guided bombs are accurate enough to ensure that they don't kill dozens of innocent people.

There's nothing tiny about 38 square miles...

PC war? What a crock...
