As far as I know this is the first war porn to emerge from the Libyan bombings.
Canadian CF-18s bomb Libyan ammunition depot — Toronto Star

At the end of the video, I’m pretty sure I saw a damaged rocket fly out of that ammo dump.
See, just can’t stop violating The No Fly Zone. That calls for another JDAM to teach em’ a lesson.
Good catch, I saw that as well.
So who exactly are we supporting here anyways? The two largest groups of jihadis that we fought in Iraq came from Saudi and from guess where? That’s right…Libya…from the very same area that is under rebel control. Way to go three stooges (Power, Rice, Hillary).

Good point, however, the short term problem as I see it is, if Egypt and other countries are now arming the opposition forces with heavy weaponry and coalition forces are destroying the loyalist weaponry, who’s gonna step in and stop the opposition from slaughtering every last one of the loyalists when they’re severely weakened and beaten back ?
The U.N. peacekeepers ?
This whole presidency is such a complete cluster F!…..good gawd!!!
This idiot Obama is gonna get us all killed.
It’s hard to pick a side here. Buckwheats for everybody.
An irony of this is that the liberal-leftist Toronto Star has been running front-page photos supporting the rebels for the past three days while for the pre-invasion bombing campaign in Iraq they were running photos of dead (alleged) civilians while decrying the Oil War and pretending that there was no Bush-led coalition etc. The hypocrisy/double standard is disgusting.
That’s Latin for awesome secondary.
Well done Canada. I am surprised to see my countries air force in a combat role. I heard Canada’s jets were seldom used in combat because the liberal government back in the day was too damn cheap to purchase the updated software to communicate with allied aircraft. Its good to finally see such videos. I sincerely hope no innocent people were harmed during the bombings though.
Would it not have been interesting though for the Joint Chiefs, when ordered to attack Lybia, to then inform our King that pursuant to the UCMJ that he must get approval from Congress before this becomes a legal order.
Can’t make much sense of this
Why are we helping the muslim brotherhood against Maddog.
The only logic I can see to here is to prolong the battle, let neithier side win, muslim vs muslim, turn Libya into one giant islamist garbage disposal unit, for the next 30 years.
There goes $500k. I hope whatever they just blew up was worth more than the bomb they dropped on it.
@mike: After a sum of money incomprehensible to the common man Canadian Jets are now fully capable of limping along behind more capable of allied forces.
The GBU30 JDAM 500 lb bomb costs about $20k.
Most of the cost is the JDAM kit: for example the GBU31 JDAM 2000 lb bomb is only about $1k more expensive.
For $500k you could get one of the cheaper versions of Tomahawk cruise missile.
Most of Libya’s military assets are near the coast. Naval gunnery would have been a lot cheaper, but probably more of a risk to journalists.
