#3 What makes you think it was actually targeted, Bobby?

Could have been Insh-Allan "targeting."

#5 Why target bakeries, I wonder?

Without guided munitions, it's hard to hit your target when you're flying at hundreds of miles an hour ten thousand feet up in the air, while watching for MANPAD missile trails. It probably doesn't help that Sunnis have this habit of placing their major weapon systems as close to as many civilians as possible. Genghis Khan used to use the subjects of his enemies as human shields while attacking said enemies. Sunnis use their own people as human shields while attacking their adversaries.
