Highway To The Danger Zone!

UPDATE: Many thanks to Misanthropic Humanitarian for linking this on the AoS ONT!

How the Soviets defeated the German army in WWII is a mystery to me.

This is a video from Russia’s Zapad-2017 military exercises where a KA-52 Alligator helicopter accidentally fired two missiles towards a group of journalists covering the event (allegedly as a result of a short-circuit in the helicopter’s electric system according to the Russian military).

Three of the journalists were injured in the incident (amazingly not critically either), including the one seen strolling along the highway.

Firing missiles at journalists? That’s the first thing Russia and I have ever agreed upon!

Pressing Their Luck

In retaliation for the killing of Qasem Soleimani, Iran launched missile attacks at U.S. installations in Iraq. Apparently the Iranians would like to get another up close and personal view of our drones.

Multiple air bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq came under missile attack from Iran on Tuesday night, according to multiple reports.

Jennifer Griffin, the national security correspondent for Fox News, tweeted Tuesday that a “senior US military source in Iraq” confirmed an attack on the Iraqi and United States Armed Forces’ Al-Asad air base. A second attack occurred at the Irbil base, the Pentagon said in a statement.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said they fired the missiles in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike on Jan. 2, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“Under missile attack from Iran,” the source said. “These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles. All over the country.”

The good news is karma immediately struck the world’s leading terror sponsor. Fifty people were killed in a stampede during Soleimani’s funeral, of the fifteen missiles fired, four landed in Iran, a Ukrainian airliner crashed in Iran shortly after takeoff, and Iran enjoyed a 4.9 magnitude earthquake.

All in the same day.

I’d like to thing the good Lord had something to do with that.
