C4 coverage this evening.

I thought tonight, fantastic - I word I wouldn't use lightly. Iraq helicopter aircrew battled in to that mountain, dropped water, picked up 25, fought and flew back out, returning fire as they went even at 3 or 4000 feet. Covered well at great risk by the C4 reporter and cameramen, a veteran of 1991.
Looking at those kids on the helicopter, hard not for my previous non intervention stance to slacken.
I mean WTF? its not even that far from the Turkish border.

Also RM Dunlop from 1991 on BBC Radio 4 news this evening, good summary I thought.
