Nothing enhances the enjoyment of my morning cup of Joe like waking up to the news of the world-dominating American military raining death and destruction down on helpless Islamofascists...
MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Many people died when a U.S. gunship hunting al Qaeda suspects attacked a village in southern Somalia as part of a wide air offensive against fugitive Islamists, officials said on Tuesday.
In Washington's first overt military intervention in Somalia since a disastrous peacekeeping mission that ended in 1994, an AC-130 plane rained gunfire on the remote village of Hayo late on Monday, a senior government official said.
"There are so many dead bodies and animals in the village," the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters.
And I believe him! Take a look at the armament capabilities of the AC-130 Gunship. You would not want to be an Al-Qaeda puke with one of these flying around overhead...
Armament - AC-130E Pave Aegis and AC-130H Pave Spectre II
2× 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon
1× 40 mm L60 Bofors cannon
1× 105 mm (4.13 in) M102 howitzer
Just imagine you're a dumb, Islamofascist, would-be terrorist trying to get some shut-eye in your sandy sleeping bag, dreaming about virgins in paradise after a long day jumping around the jungle-gym at the terrorist training camp, when out of nowhere, a 105mm Howitzer in the sky knocks you right out of your sandles and dirty night shirt...but not before you soil yourself.
It just makes me smile.
