We ain't talking about Jerusalem-You were running your neck about there was no Allied bombing in the City of Baghdad, when in fact the opposite is true. Knip knows, I know, and everybody who reads this crap knows two things:

1. US & UK Air Forces dumped tons of ordnance on Baghdad

2. You are full of shit.

I shall now take the time to search up the actual number of sorties flown, targets, and amount of ordnance expended upon that ancient city and her people that was ordered by Commander In Chief George W. Bush. When I have them posted here sometime later this evenint Then you can diddle with rhetoric and spin it around to say, "well, it doesnt really mean bombing because blah blah blah....".

Stick around, we're going to give you a million dollar education and we're going to shove it up your ass a nickle's worth at a time.

"bombing of Baghdad" means just that. Bombing of Baghdad. Period.
It doesn't mean "bombing of Dresden" ,"bombing of Tokyo", "bombing of Frankfurt", "bombing of Schwienfurt", "bombing of Coventry",, "bombing of London", "bombing of"bombing of Monte Cassino, "bombing of Hiroshima" or bombing any of these either:

This lull might be accounted for due to an R&R pass, Rest &
Recuperation, period...what the crews use to call "Flak Pass".
However, it could have due to some other cause such as wounds or battle
damage.
