It may not be quite as exciting (yet) as CNN's night vision coverage of the air bombing campaign from Operation Desert Storm, but in an attempt, we assume, to boost morale and to show that the Iraqi army isn't folding like John Boehner at the first sign of Al-Qaeda ISIS troops, moments ago the Iraqi defense ministry, via AP, released the following footage which is said to show "deadly airstrikes on militants in the Salah al-Din and Nineveh provinces" from Wednesday night, shortly after ISIS captures two strategic Iraq cities.

 

The flipside to the video above, and one which Iraq will never release, is the following clip released earlier today which allegedly shows over 4000 Iraqi soldiers captured by ISIS and being transferred who knows where.
