#1 Maybe I come from a different era, but it sure seems to me that a awful lot of 'bombing' and 'airstrikes' cause a lot less damage than they used to. Perhaps that's journalistic license.

#2 If one reads this carefully, it appears that absolutely nothing was hit even after two strikes from land and air.
It was like firing your irons on the ground, to make the mexicans dance and flee.
In the real world it means 'we have these bombs, but for some reason we dare not hit you'.

#3 I don't understand. Are the Russians not so good at precision bombing or were they missing on purpose? Don't get me wrong any kind of explosive ordinance going off in Arab countries is a good thing. We need a lot more of it.
