War Porn: A-10 VS ISIS

A strike softening up IS ahead of Peshmerga.

I've ears in Mosul telling me that ISIS found yesterday very unpleasant. (I should say, had ears, its pretty darned quiet LOL)

Update: Moar War Porn.

Update ISIS fighters have a very bad day, below the fold.

1 I did not see a whole lot of opposition at the
end of this video. This tells me that any
survivors ran like the citizens of Tokyo in the
old Godzilla movies!

2 Could there be any greater sound than an A10's gun? Closest thing would be plugging your Strat into a Fender on a live cable at full volume and getting that brrrrrt as the plug makes the connection.

4 Greetings:

Let's take this in numberical order:

1) That first truck in the top video reminded me of a bit of my favorite Platoon Sergeant's wit and wisdom as evidenced by "If it moves, put a gun on it. If it still moves, put another gun on it."

2) Sometimes, when I see those Peshmerga guys, I get the feeling that they don't really care which Arabs they're killing.

3) As to the second video, Yes, vaporization has always been my favorite.

4) And here's a Bronx cheer for all those Air Force generals who were so busy adeptly genuflecting after President Obama decided that the A-10 Warthogs were now obsolete.

5 The building in clip 2 looked like a power station with that tall chimney. Perhaps that is why it is so quiet, nowhere to recharge the iPhone now.
