Cameraman did a fantastic job capturing the fast moving jet, the bomb release, and the explosion. You can see two bombs quite clearly just before they strike, although you have to look closely to see them both. The mindboggling thing is that the cameraman barely flinched as building next to him blew up.
Fighter jets like this Sukhoi Su-22 are mean motherfucker. At first you can’t see them, you just hear the roar. Then out of nowhere it appears and before the second is over the bomb is released and then BUM. Everything goes down so fast it gives you little time to react. Great job on behalf of the pilot to drop unguided bombs to accurately. No wonder well armed rebels sometimes succeed in taking down SAA planes, seeing how they have no other option but to fly low. Guided missiles are too expensive for a financially batter government after more than 2 years of fighting the never ending supply of terrorists.
Also – whatever the outcome, the winner will have hell of a job to do rebuilding the country from scratch. Every new video from Syria shows completely devastated infrastructure. They have little in terms of usable buildings still left. And that American who has not been to Syria for 30 years said he will not negotiate with the government. No surprise there really. Peace has never been on the minds of the rebels. All they cared about was destruction and complete seizure of power. Or should I say – what their sponsors are instructing them to do is to deliver destruction and seize power without peace talk negotiations.
