I can’t stop the ads. I wish I could.

Ten years ago today (March 19 2003) the United States and a “Coalition of the Willing” invaded Iraq. This is a recording I made of CNN’s coverage of the “Shock and Awe” campaign conducted at that time. I copied this off of my VHS tape. I’m merely uploading this for historical purposes. Most tapes I see of this are only about ten minutes long. This is just over two hours. It covers from 8:19 PM to around 10:30 PM (Baghdad local time). The “Shock and Awe” campaign starts at 9:00 PM or about.  This video includes post-bombing statements from Secretary of the State Donald Rumsfeld, and Air Force General, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Richard Myers among others.

This is only for historical purposes. It is in no way meant to glorify, or denounce these events. I’m not uploading this for monetary gain. I’m merely sharing this with others who may wish to see it.
