Pounding the Ministry of Planning

As I tuned into the war this weekend I kept hearing reporters talk about coalition forces pounding the Ministry of Planning building. Now I doubt it was the Ministry of Urban Planning but, as a planner, I could not help being a little intrigued. What weapons of mass destruction are coming out of the planning compound? I have seen some comp plans that would qualify.

Do APM and Muggie take special joy in seeing precision guided weapons pounding an entire building full of government planners? Is this a lesson for planners everywhere? Should the Planners of North Korea be on guard? After Korea, is San Francisco next?

i saw that too Guap, i figured it was military planning and chalked it up to poor translation.

i knew a few developers that would have loved to see planning blasted to China and back!

I think it's probably more an economic and infrastructure-type planning (like the old Soivet Ministry of Planning)...though to get hit it must have had some military significance.

I read that anti aircraftmissile launchers were on that roof of the ministry of planning, which probably has to do with social and economic planning, such as it would operate under SH

Goal:

To pro-actively initiate comprehensive invasions of Kuwait, Suadi Arabia, and Israel, and limit the sprawl of Kurds and Shiites in ex-urban areas.
