Is that "incident" ratio a nickel per SAM fired at US/UK jets, or a
nickel per single sortie? Sometimes Iraqis fired 8 or more SAMs per
single jet sortie. And does triple-A count as much as a SAM?

It hardly matters. I've apparently been kicked off the list for admitting that I was wrong about something, in clear violation of the list guidelines. Luckily--or unluckily--the freelist software has more than made up for it by subscribing me to All War, All the Time (playsoldier.org).
