The news today is that Iraq has shot down one of our unmanned Predator aircraft. Those people have been firing on our planes patrolling the no-fly zones for some time now, and we’ve only recently started really hitting back. Thankfully they’ve never taken out a manned aircraft. This time it was a drone, but next time it could be for real. The pattern for the last several times that they’ve fired on us was the levelling of the installation that fired, or the radar station that peppered the aircraft for the missile to hit. It’s time to take it up a notch and rather than just hitting the particular installation that fired the missile, we need to take out, say, 10 of their bases. And then increase the number with each infraction.
