This is old news n a way becasue it was published in July 2003, but i guess not many Indymedia types get Stars and Stripes.

I found this while doing some research:

"During the war, the B-52s flying from RAF Fairford flew 122 combat sorties, a total of 1,600 flying hours in 33 days. They dropped 3.2 million pounds of munitions and 9 million leaflets.!"
