A couple of mysteries from yesterday’s posts are solved!
The first one is that odd little statue left at a gas station. It is not a woman in a burka with a rifle. It turns out to be a common infantry target. It is supposed to be a generic person in a generic camouflage outfit with a rifle to be used as target practice.
This may be a European thing, I’m not sure but I am told its common. Thank you Carpe Diem for that.
Another thing which could be called a mystery is that Obama did something which looked like it was in American interests by sending a carrier group to do what appears to be intercept an Iranian warship with supplies for the Houthi rebels. Here is an article by a retired US navy intel analyst saying that not only is this the wrong weapons platform for this purpose, it is also being moved away from the location where it can be used to fight the Islamic State, a function for which it is suited. So the mystery of Obama doing something correct is now also solved.
Thank you Tundra T. for that one.
