#14  Never understood some folks attitudes toward dogs. Known some nasty ones -- but the owners were worse.

"In Zoroastrianism, the dog is regarded as an especially beneficent, clean and righteous creature, which must be fed and taken care of. The dog is praised for the useful work it performs in the household, but it is also seen as having special spiritual virtues."

Explosions reported at Iraqi base hosting US troops
[ALMASDARNEWS] It appears that an Iraqi military base has come under attack once again, as local reports claim that the installation, which hosts U.S. troops, may have been subjected to rocket fire.

According to local reports, at least three explosions were heard at the Camp Taji military base north of Baghdad late Tuesday. The base houses both Iraqi and US forces.

A news hound with Sky News Arabic said on Tuesday night that three explosions had been heard at Camp Taji, an Iraqi military installation that also houses a large number of US troops.

US forces at Taji have come under attack repeatedly this month, killing several members of the US-led coalition in Iraq. While Washington maintains the attacks were carried out by Kataib Hezbollah, a Shiite militia in Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, at the direction of Iran, Tehran has denied the accusations.

Russia confirms attack on Turkish forces in Idlib
[ALMASDARNEWS] The head of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, Admiral Oleg Goralev, said that the holy warrior forces placed bombs on the patrol path of the Ottoman Turkish military on Tuesday.

He said in a presser on Tuesday: "An improvised bomb went kaboom! during the passage of a Ottoman Turkish patrol in the Sufahan region, today, Tuesday, where two vehicles were damaged as a result of the earth-shattering kaboom, and two Ottoman Turkish soldiers were maimed."

According to him, the faceless myrmidons groups not controlled by the Ottoman Turkish side continue to take steps to destabilize the situation in the Idlib region.

He stressed that the faceless myrmidons carried out during the past 24 hours seven bombing operations in the Idlib Governorate, while no violations of the ceasefire system were observed by armed factions loyal to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
He concluded by saying: "The Russian Reconciliation Center calls on the leaders of the illegal armed formations to abandon provocations with weapons, and take the path of a peaceful settlement."
