I had to laugh at this video of a US airstrike against a group of ISIS terrorists on a hill outside Kobani in Syria. The militants have been fighting to take over the town for weeks, and its Kurdish inhabitants have been resisting for all they're worth. US air strikes have been helping them. In this case the terrorists were apparently standing in the open, looking down on the town, clearly about to charge down the hill in another assault. Unfortunately for them, someone (whether on the ground or in the air isn't known) saw them standing there and called in an air strike from a nearby US Air Force B-1 bomber, which unloaded half a dozen JDAM's on them (probably 2,000lb. Mk 84's with guidance kits, judging by the size of the explosions). I recommend watching the result in full-screen mode - but turn your volume down a bit.
What I particularly enjoyed was the giggle from a female voice after the bombs had gone off. Listen carefully and you'll hear it in the background. That's a giggle that says "You're not coming down that hill to attack us any more - you've got your own problems now, haven't you?"
I've heard a similar-sounding giggle from tribeswomen in the Angolan bush when we called in an artillery strike to stop an impending attack by Angolan government forces. It's a giggle that says "Not today you don't, Charlie!" as they watch the destruction of those who intended to kill them. There's a certain triumphalism involved . . .
(Note, too, the black-clad figure on the hill who starts running like hell when the first bombs go off. I reckon he left a brown trail behind him, and probably hasn't stopped running yet!)
That brought back lots of memories.
