Do you realize we’ve never stopped bombing Afghanistan?

Since 2016, we’ve increased airstrikes as much as 780% though combat operations in Afghanistan officially ended in December 2014…


US Air Force

US and coalition combat operations in Afghanistan officially ended in December 2014, and the numbers of CFACC-controlled airstrikes dropped from 2,365 for that year to just 947 in 2015 (the lowest figure recorded since 2009). The strike rate began to rapidly rise again in 2016 with 1,337 recorded, and rose again in 2017 with 4,361. It rose markedly again in 2018 with 7,362, before peaking at 7,423 in 2019.

Gee, what might have happened in 2016 to spark increased bombing of one of those little nations on our kill-list? Hmm?

BTW, there aren’t any more “coalition” forces operating over Afghanistan. It’s all our military, folks.

Storm Ciara helps break NYC to London speed record

As hurricane force winds of 90mph batter the UK, bringing travel misery and power cuts for millions, the weather has helped one plane set a new record.

While many faced flight cancellations because of Storm Ciara, BA flight 112 too just four hours and 56 minutes to complete a flight from New York to London late on Saturday evening, reaching speeds of up to 800mph…

It means the flight is likely to have broken the fastest-ever subsonic New York to London crossing time, smashing the previous record set by Norwegian Airways which took five hours and 13 minutes in January 2018…

Woo-Hoo!

Breathe!

❝ Hyundai bills the Nexo as a zero-emission vehicle, but technically that’s not true. It emits water, along with 99.9-percent-filtered oxygen, as byproducts of the hydrogen-to-energy conversion process. Some people who are stuck on the idea of a traditional internal-combustion car might have a hard time believing nothing harmful comes out of the Nexo, so Hyundai wanted to demonstrate that fact as clearly as possible. As such, it put Olympic athlete (and brand ambassador) Mireia Belmonte and a treadmill in a sealed air bubble connected to the Nexo’s exhaust. Do not try this at home with any vehicle.

Way cool…
