Peace In Our Time

Well, this seems to be a new, novel way to kill the enemy.

SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. The Air Force general in charge of the air war in Afghanistan says a new strategy means warplanes in some cases may be buzzing rather than bombing some insurgents.

Lt. Gen. Gilmary Hostage said Thursday that his job is to support the strategy of winning Afghan support as formulated by the new U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal. As part of that, McChrystal imposed restrictions on air power to limit civilian casualties.

Let it be noted that the officer who released this information has the last name of "Hostage."

Chuckle at will.

Thanks to Longhorn.
