  • I didn't actually nominate this article. I just changed the tag to one that we can discuss.
  • For NOT there are many. Click the news, books, scholar, and JSTOR (if you have an account) above.
  • This may be the first time a 'smart bomb' video was widely aired to the public. If not it is the most notable.
  • NOTNEWS - It was news at the time, but I think it was a very memorable event. It is still discussed decades later and if we can get more detail it would be nice for readers to access RS sources on the event. The article is not about a BLP, or the video, but the event and circumstances surrounding it. The article name seems to be the most common usage of that event.--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:03, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete Because it is still only one incident. There is so little to say about it that it doesn't need its own article. The information could be given in Smart bomb, if that's what makes it notable. Borock (talk) 00:12, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete - This was a one-off comment. Yes, sources at the time mentioned it. However, all of the sources discussing it date from one day in 1991 (we do have an undiscussed use of the clip in 1997). There is no indication of lasting significance. Additionally, this permanent stub (two sentences), according to the talk page, strives to be a WP:BLP1E. Notwithstanding potential speculation about the kind of bomb used, the is person "remains, and is likely to remain, a low-profile individual". - SummerPhD (talk) 01:33, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete This is not news. It was one event in 1991 and the person is anonymous. It doesn't merit a wikipedia article. --Artene50 (talk) 08:52, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete as a non-notable video, as the article creater removed a proposed deletion and raised this AfD it could be considered an CSD G7 Author requests deletion as well! MilborneOne (talk) 14:31, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
