FRIENDLY FIRE, REDUX
FRIENDLY FIRE, REDUX: Preliminary indications still point to an RAF plane being shot down by a US Patriot missile but no details are emerging.
One thing we know for sure: many journalists are insensitive morons:
Asked in an interview with Reuters if the latest apparent accident meant that Britain had made a bad start to the campaign, Lockwood said: “It’s not one we would have chosen.”
But he pointed to the huge number of aircraft movements in the area.
“This, you must remember, is high intensity conflict. This is war, it’s not training. We have had an enormous number of aircraft movements over the last three days. Operations have been virtually continuous.”
