Military cluelessness at the Times of London

"The Times of London notes that the US and UK increased the number of bombs dropped on Iraq in 2002 and thinks that that's evidence that Blair and Bush were deliberately increasing the number of bombs dropped in an effort to provoke the Saddam regime into a cassus belli.

No, the possibility that Saddam was issuing orders to his air defense units to be more aggressive in trying to knock down an American aircraft couldn't possibly have anything to do with it, and doesn't warrant any mention in the story, despite the fact that reports of renewed Iraqi aggressiveness date back well before 9/11, and despite the fact that Saddam had actually shot down an unmanned aircraft."
For some reason people seem to forget the ten years of war, before the war.
