Response to A-Schwarzenegger (Reply #176)

177. In 1990, we used F-16s and F-18s to drop leaflets.

Low-level fast flights over Iraqi positions. Terrifying god-awful-loud jet boom followed by a blizzard of propaganda leaflets, addressed to individual army companies. Basically said, in arabic, "the next drop will be a bomb."

This is a big reason why you saw all those abandoned posts and surrendered troops on CNN.
