#1 What border control point? Where? Is it asking too much for specificity?

#2 Abu Kamal (Syria) also known as al-Qaim (Iraq).

France24: But the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 17 people were killed after the strike hit three trucks loaded with munitions coming from Iraq near the Syrian city of Bukamal.

The group said all the dead were from Iraq’s state-sponsored Hashed al-Shaabi force, the umbrella group over many small militias that have ties to Iran.

#3 Good find, Ebbereger Unainter6303. Your France 24 link is here. Al Bukamal must be mostly dust and pebbles by now, given how often it gets hit.

#4 Our family Marine was in al-Qaim region during 2005-2006.

The area was mostly 'dust and pebbles' then, TW.

#5 one interesting thing about this is all the Dem's who criticized Trump for bombing Syria after Assad's chemical attack on civilians

my fav of this genre is by Amy Siskind who says, in effect, the Biden bombing is OK since it doesn't come with a mean tweet (she tweeted this but deleted her tweet after it was mocked).

#7 Guy goes into a bar...

Guy goes into a bar, there's a robot bartender. Since the minimum wage was increased to $15 the owner had to replace his regular human bartender.

The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini." The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, "What's your IQ?" The guy says," 168." The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.

The guy leaves, but he is curious..so he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says, "What will you have?"The guy says, "Martini." Again, the robot makes a great martini gives it to the man and says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "100." The robot then starts to talk about NASCAR, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.

The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar. The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini," and the robot brings him another great martini. The robot then says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "Uh, about 50." The robot leans in real close and says, "So, you people still happy you voted for Biden?"
