A leg, on the safe side

The United States is at war with Libya. The Warmonger-in-Chief is confident that it will be a feather-touch one. Said he:
"I have absolutely no doubt that we will be able to transfer control of this operation to an international coalition."
Look who is talking about war like it was a video game. Like thrusting the joystick in a younger sibling's hands before running to take a dump.

Yesterday, a US fighter plane crashed near Benghazi due to mechanical failure. The two pilots ejected and parachuted to the ground safely. Now, remember that Benghazi is US-friendly territory.

Between the time that the pilots reached the ground and a rescue helicopter picked them up, two 500-pound bombs were dropped from other planes around the downed fliers' position "as precaution". While the rescue party was on the ground to pick up the pilots, they opened fire on locals, injuring six.

Channel 4's reporter on the ground reports that a small boy expects to have his leg amputated due to a bullet wound.

Oh that fog of war!
