News reports from Iraq indicate that a new "Shock and Awe" campaign may be used to quell continuing insurgencies.

Here is a link to a story about the resumption of night bombings: http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/DA271053-1C31-44ED-9A70-95CE005050B9.htm

After seeing that the story mentions 1000 and 2000 lb bombs, I decided to look up and see what the effect of such bombs are. Here is a link to a military site that has an animation of an explosion: http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/dumb/fae.htm

I leave around noon tomorrow (November 20) for my 2-week visit to Iraq.
