Missed it!

Great - I sit glued to my BBC feed for the last few hours like a good little twitching information junkie, then when I pop out for five minutes to get icecream, the war starts. Bush attacked at dawn, and everyone is surprised. He'll apparantly be speaking in 10 minutes, which will probably be the usual "My fellow Americans... as I speak to you American forces have begun the disarmament of Iraq... God bless America" crap.

But what I really want to know is what the BBC is going to do about those much-vaunted "E-bombs". These are supposed to use EMP to knock out electronics - like communications systems, or satellite uplinks. How will they get the news out with all their cameras dead? (or is that the point)
