With B-52's dropping live armament

Just seems a little odd to have forces training in the proximity of B-52 targets with the know CEP of the Stratofortress.
Unless there is more to this than we even know. Right part of the world for a terrorism pre-emptive strike,
Right equipment, right personell operative in the proximity.

Unfortunate tragety, but I'd like to know more details,

Little more, not much though

If it was a strike either the ground forces were early, or the aircraft were late.

I think the military has regular live fire exercises.

The Captn' has very good cause to be aware of that.

They like to pull back 3 klicks, about 2 miles from a target for Buffs,
But if theres an engagement things fall where they must.

I find it hard to believe that we train within a 2 mile CEP,
but active suppression could be closer.
I think they found something.

It is possible, but they have been training there for a couple years now.....
