Nos remontamos en abril de 2004, cuando el #GobiernoEspañol ordenaba la retirada de las #FuerzasArmadasEspañolas en #Irak.

Por aquel entonces, la BRIGADA PLUS ULTRA 2 estaba siendo relevada por la BRIGADA PLUS ULTRA 3, unidad...
perteneciente al "Grupo Táctico del IV Tercio " ALEJANDRO FARNESIO", con #BaseEspañola en #Diwaniya.

Desde esta #BaseMilitar, nuestros #Soldados partían al Puerto de #Kuwait para su repatriación, en el marco de la "Operación C.A.N.A.P.R.E.", el 20 de mayo de 2004.
Entre el trayecto que une, la ciudad de #Diwaniya con la ciudad de #Kuwait, cerca de Al-Hamzah, el convoy español fue atacado por un numeroso grupo de insurgentes, utilizando lanzagranadas RPG y disparos de fusil de asalto AK-47.

We have a shift to on-shore westerly wind in the Horn of Africa region today, which, I confess means little to me beyond being a new thing in the data. But it seems significant, as there is more water over the sea.

Today's rainfall/cyclone forecasts for the region follow.
Here's a view from this afternoon & the direction of travel is pretty stable. For me onshore winds bringing wet air towards mountains means lots more rain. If anyone is aware of the usual timing of this switch I would be interested.
Here are African 10-Day Accumulated rain forecasts. All of which now show the impact of the two Cyclones which are now in the forecast window.

Today's #ArabianStorms went in a different direction during the day, but ended up in a familiar place in the end.

Today's #MiddleEast and #Ethiopia #HornOfAfrica rain forecasts follow in the thread below.
In the animation above you can see a flow of clouds from Sudan to Oman. This flow actually originates to the South West in the Central African Republic. Here you see the CAR to Khartoum leg of the journey.

1/ Important #COVID19 vaxxine data thread. I have avoided tweeting about the vax issue as it’s become an immensely toxic topic. But there are some extremely worrying trends emerging between CV19 cases, deaths, & vaxxine administration.
#cdnpoli #onpoli #Canada #science #data
2/ Here, I will share publicly available data for #COVID19 vaxxinations, cases, & deaths in 17 countries + #Ontario & ask questions, as per the scientific method. You are free to make up your own mind regarding the trends shown.
#cdnpoli #onpoli #Canada #science #data
3/ #Israel was the one of the first countries to start CV19 vaxxinations (19-Dec-2020). Since vaxxinations began, both CV19 cases & deaths continued to increase for ~5 weeks. It took 3 months for cases+deaths return to pre-vax levels.

It’s alive and well. You just haven’t noticed. Feminists across the world are fighting battles you’ve never seen in the West.

They’re imprisoned in #Iran for removing their hijab. They’re imprisoned in #SaudiArabia for driving or pushing for the abolition of laws against women.
They’re fighting for laws that protect women and value their lives in #Kuwait, where men who ‘honor kill’ their sisters and wives get a perfunctory three years in prison.
They’re in the streets of #Pakistan literally risking their lives to say ‘stop raping us’.

A Kuwaiti woman & lawyer sued a man bc he was harassing her sister trying to force her into marriage, threatening to kill her. He was arrested & released on bail. Once free, he murdered the woman, stabbed her dozens of times & left her body outside a hospital. #جريمه_صباح_السالم
The man, who is still walking free, also crashed his car into the car of the lawyer whose sister he murdered and child he kidnapped.
This is the murderer after crashing into the lawyer’s car, after he kidnapped her daughter, before he murdered the sister. They will say this man was crazy, and that this is anomaly when this is more of a norm. He should not have been released on bail. #جريمه_صباح_السالم #kuwait
