Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Questions Remain After Israel Strikes Syrian Air-Defense System
[Jpost] Why did an antiquated Syrian air defense system fire at an Israeli jet?

Israel said a Syrian anti-aircraft system fired at an IDF fighter jet on Monday night. Israel responded by targeting the launcher that had shot at the plane. This is the very simple and clear statement that was released. It also said the Israeli jet that had been fired upon was on a routine flight in northern Israel.

Syrian sources have reported the launcher which was hit ‐ somewhere in the Khan Arnabeh and Quneitra area ‐ was a Syrian ZSU-34-4 Shilka and the soldiers manning it were from the 121st brigade of the Syrian army. The main difference between the various Shilka models is the size of the guns on it, or caliber. For instance, the ZSU-23-4 Shilka, which entered service in 1962, had four 23 mm. auto-cannons with radar guidance.

AOC Disappointed To Learn The 'Free Market' Isn't A Grocery Store Where You Don't Have To Pay For Anything
[Babylon Bee] WASHINGTON, D.C.‐Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has struggled to get by on her new six-figure salary, given the high cost of living in her luxurious Washington, D.C. crib.

So when she heard in passing that the United States has a "free market" economy, she was ecstatic. She immediately set out in an Uber to try to find one of the free markets, assuming they were grocery stores where you don't have to pay for anything.

"I'm really, like really excited," she said on a live Instagram video. "I thought the U.S. was all about oppressive capitalistic systems of inequality, but when I heard about these free markets, I realized we were in better shape than I had thought."

However, after her Uber had driven her all over the city for several hours, she hadn't found a single free market anywhere and had to settle for going to some stores where people are free to buy, sell, and exchange goods and services with one another.

#2  Funny, but still should be in the 'Opinion' section

Agreed. Humour rather than facts. Moved at 12:47 p.m. EDT.

#3  Maybe it's time for a The Bee or Not The Bee section. Think I'm kidding? For example:

I tell ya, it's Crazy Town out there!
