Libyan rebels attacked by coalition forces

It's not funny, but did anyone else at least raise a wry eyebrow at the news of a UN aircraft attacking rebels who were celebrating by firing guns in the air.

Quick tip - people firing guns in the air at an aircraft and people firing guns in the air in celebration are not that easy to differentiate; might want to find a different celebratory method.

I've always wondered where the bullets land. It's bad enough in Kidderminster on fireworks night when you've got bits of wood and plastic tubing falling in your garden; When there's a few lads in the Middle East pumping a couple of hundred 7.62mm rounds into the night sky, there must be some damaged cars and such in consequence.

I wonder if there is a similar attitude from the neighbours as well "Abdul at number 63 is shooting his AK47 again. It's not even independence day until next week. I found six bullet casings in the hedge last time, he'd better clear them up!"

"...and it's 2 o'clock at night, some of us have to go to work in the morning"

As in so much Wikipedia has the statistics on falling bullet injuries and property damage
