Zapping Saddam’s Navy

The Operations Room has a great seven-minute play-by-play breakdown of the 24-hour battle by the Royal, U.S., and Royal Canadian Navy that left no less than 21 Iraqi vessels, mostly fast attack craft and minelayers, at the bottom of the Northern Persian Gulf during Desert Storm. I knew about 75 percent of these actions, but some, like the Canadian CF-18A strafings, were new to me.

Enjoy.
