More On Those Shoulder Launched Cruise Missiles
Earlier, both Pat and I, posted on the rather bizarre segment where Loose Change talks about a cruise missile attack on the Pentagon (when they are not talking about an A3 Skywarrior attack) while at the same time showing a test firing of a shoulder launched anti-tank weapon.
The Loosers here indignantly complained that we were just nitpicking, and they never actually said a shoulder launched missile was used, but rather that was just the video they happened to have for this segment.
Well, the Loose Change boys, who thankfully show no end to their stupidity, thus providing us plenty of material to write about, have in fact provided us proof that they had actually considered the possibility of a shoulder launched missile being used in the attack on the Pentagon, while being interviewed on the Fred McChesney Show on Air America (H/T Loose Change Creators Speak):
Tim in Tempe: The presumption is that possibly a missile hit the Pentagon. It would have had to come from either a ship or a plane, correct?
Rowe: Or ground. Actually, it could have been a Javelin round, which is a two-man team can carry a Javelin round. It costs upwards to around $750,000 for the equipment for one round to actually have the piece that locks whatever you are shooting from. I mean, you could shoot it…
Caller: And it could cause the damage that was shown…
Rowe: I mean, if the missile inside and it can be modified .Yes, it could do that, but it would have to be significantly modified. But I mean, I would lean closer to a missile being shot by an airplane.
Yeah, OK. Obviously Specialist Rowe didn't learn anything when he was assaulting with the first wave into Afghanistan. A Javelin, which looks even less like a Boeing 767 than a cruise missile does, has a shaped charge warhead of all of 8.5KG, and would not punch a 90 foot wide hole in the side of the Pentagon, and continue through 3 rings of the Pentagon while dispersing airplane parts, much less cause a huge fireball billowing into the air.
Once again, you must be careful not to underestimate the stupidity of the Loose Change creators.
