Back in '91 all hell broke loose when the Iraqis bombed an American military barracks in the middle of the war. After that event the allies pressed ahead into a stepped up killing campaign that was not seen by the world in quite some time. As a result the Iraqi infantry was slaughtered and many Iraqi Air Force jets were flown into Iran in a desperate attempt to flee.
An infamous moment from all of this occurred when a USAF commander was giving the pre-flight briefing to the fighter pilots, and he told the men to "show no mercy" on the Iraqi army and to fight until they were dead.
What resulted from this was the infamous "highway of death" that resulted in 1000s of Iraqi deaths and I think a whole Iraqi army division was lost in just a few hours.
Do you think something like this will happen again, or is this a new kind of war?
