Americans may be losing the air war over Iraq
It's official, folks: the four American helicopters that crashed over Iraq in the past two weeks were brought down by Iraqi fire.
We still don't know if the Iraqis have managed to deploy a new anti-aircraft missile, or if they are just getting better with what they already have, but four downed helicopters in two weeks is a good score by guerrilla warfare standards.
Only time will tell if the Americans are losing their air superiority over Iraq. If they are then supplying their troops will become impossible, as the roads are already controlled by the Iraqi forces.
It just gets better and better, doesn't it?
