Should We Be Surprised?

General admits to secret air war
The American general who commanded allied air forces during the Iraq war appears to have admitted in a briefing to American and British officers that coalition aircraft waged a secret air war against Iraq from the middle of 2002, nine months before the invasion began.
Of course. Why wouldn't there be a secret air war before the actual war that our nation was supposedly trying to avoid by having the UN impose weapons inspections on Iraq? Why wouldn't we strike while the world was looking away for a moment?
But MoseleyƂ’s remarks, and figures for the amount of bombs dropped in southern Iraq during 2002, indicate that the RAF was taking as large a part in the bombing as American aircraft.
Well, at least we weren't in it alone.
