This is novel!


In the air, US and British jets were operating combat patrols over the capital 24 hours a day. The city has been turned into what pilots call a "kill zone," where they have permission to hit any military targets as soon as they appear.

Since the targets are in a civilian area many of the precision-guided bombs have had their warheads removed and have been fitted instead with concrete blocks to minimise the impact of the blast.

"The outcome remains beyond doubt," Brigadier-General Vince Brooks, deputy director of operations at central command in Qatar, said. "The regime gets in greater and greater danger with every moment they have chosen to remain in place."

Good grief, we've re-invented the Roman ballista. Loading the howitzers with gravel next, no doubt and issuing the infantry with crossbows.
On the other hand, with this development, they only have to find a cement-works in Iraq and the case for WMD is closed.

Maybe they could use a quick setting cement that is poured out of the plane and sets on the way down?

It is the use of the oldest of weapons: Simple mass. This time, mass at very high velocity, precision guided.

After reading this, there have got to be some very interesting photos of targets hit with these weapons...

I think I saw a clip of one on TV, these guys were looking at a round crater hole in the middle of the airport terminal, but it was like a direct hole down, and not an explosion, yet it hd come through the roof
