Mike I was wondering the same thing, it would seem that they would have had a better view and may have clearly seen the RPG. They were flying at low altitude and I think they must react very quickly and decisively – there are no mulligans in war.
Much has been made about the coarse language used but I think it is understandable that adrenalin would be racing under the circumstances.

Yup, agreed. I thought we learned many years ago (Vietnam) that police actions don’t work, and that you never go in without a clear plan to get out.
I probably shouldn’t say this but the Reuters (owned by Rothschild) reporters could have been set-up (just my cynical side) for all we know. One thing for sure, this is not as cut and dry as it first appeared.
