Coming Attractions: Gulf War II
For a sobering look at modern war, check out this video of an AC-130 hunting down targets in Afghanistan. (Thanks to IFILM for picking up the slack on this.) The most chilling is the tracking and leading of individuals as they run for their lives, who appear as bright spots in the infrared imaging. The audio commentary is interesting, too, with comments from pilots and commanders. There are orders to avoid a mosque but “level” a building nearby. I’m assuming similar scenes will be played out in several months in Iraq.
