Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The changing Obama Years from Hope to Despair. His career as activist, people characterized Senator Obama from Illinois as a man for building relationships and work for peace. The reality would be harsh, his advisors got the President from one quagmire to the next. Putting wrong people into roles of advisors, Obama lived by his rhetoric, but could not change the course of America for becoming better and more united.

Christmas Bombing -- Operation Linebacker I and II

Nixon had ordered the raids on December 14, and the Strategic Air Command headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, hastily devised a plan. The Eighth Air Force staff on Guam was surprised at the SAC decision to plan the missions in Omaha. The Eighth's mission planners had managed B-52 raids for years, and, since they were stationed on Guam, could discuss tactics with many of the B-52 crews. The distance between the SAC planners and the combat crews halfway around the world seemed to guarantee problems.

SAC's plan was to split the B-52 force--which would be flying from Guam and a U.S. base in U-Tapao, Thailand--into three waves, all attacking at night, with four hours between each wave. The bombers would fly almost identical routes, in single file, to Hanoi.
