    Keep on posting these air strikes ! Shows the stupidity of them ...

    A 1 million dollar bomb to wipe out a $2,000 vehicle. Brilliant !

    Why are we bombing?

    2/3rd of those polled support the bombing http://news.yahoo.com/poll-2-3-ameri...BUTmgAMKfQtDMD

    I think that 2/3rds would vote bombing Santa Claus ....

    Video describes the target as a 'technical' so the proper calculation is cost/benefit of removing a high-caliber weapon, rather than of a vehicle.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    It looks like the missile has a unit cost of around $170K, not $1M. Regardless, these strikes are effective toward their actual purpose: propaganda for the West. They are, of course, grossly ineffective toward their nominal purpose.
