Aardvarks and the dawn of tank-plinking, a thread. 1/8
#avgeeks #aviation #USAF #DesertStorm #History
On the night of Feb 5, 1991, Col. Tom Lennon, commander of #USAF's 48th FW, led a pair of F-111s on an experimental mission against dug-in units of the #Iraqi Republican Guard in the deserts north of Kuwait. 2/8 #avgeeks #aviation #DesertStorm #History
For the experiment, each F-111 was armed with a Pave Track pod and four GBU-12 500 lb LGBs. The crews were to see if LGBs could be guided accurately enough to hit targets as small as an AFV. 3/8 #avgeeks #aviation #USAF #DesertStorm #History

Thyroid as a #target of adjuvant #autoimmunity /#infammatory syndrome due to mRNA‐based SC2 vaccination.
#Vaccines contain #adjuvants which are not exempt from adverse efects and can #trigger the autoimmune/infammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (#ASIA). Image
Multiple endocrine organs have receptors for ACE2.
mRNA of ACE2, the SARS-CoV2 receptor, is expressed in the thyroid cells.
ACE2 receptor is abundantly expressed by the thyroid. Elevated levels of proinflammatory cytokines could increase the expression ofACE2 on the thyroidgland.
ASIA covers a wide range of diseases like macrophagic myofasciitis syndrome, post-vaccination phenomena, #GulfWar syndrome #GWS and Silicosis.
After mass vaccination with SARS-CoV2 vaccines, some cases of Graves’ disease have been reported. #Grave ‘s disease after #Pfizer.

#OnThisDay #gulfwar30

Another quick snapshot of what life was like onboard a warship on this day in 1991, down the Gulf. A disclaimer. It’s been thirty years and my memory has doubtless failed me on some minor details. 1/
I might have one or two things a little off but the idea is to give non-naval types an idea of what it was like during those busy days we had

So HMS Exeter is in a swept box, about 10 miles East of Kuwait. USS Wisconsin and USS Missouri are conducting shoots at targets ashore 2/
Meanwhile we continue to provide air defence for the battleships, and cover the allied mine hunters as they sweep further safe transit lanes for the next box north of us. Mine warning remains red, air raid warning yellow. The Chemical Rule is in force, 3/

#Onthisday1991 #gulfwar30

Today thirty years ago we had completed a swept lane transit through the minefield, followed by Wisconsin, Princeton, Tripoli and Jarrett as seen in this picture.

At about 0450 hrs USS Tripoli ran onto an Iraqi mine missed by the sweepers. 1/6 Image
The blast created a hole sixteen by twenty five feet, flooded a pump space, dry stores compartment and auxiliary engine room. Fractured firemain flooded a magazine, with further shock damage throughout the ship. She remained immobilised for most of the day as allied ships 2/6 Image
cleared the area round her, finding further mines and marking them with smoke canisters. There were no fatalities and the mine was believed to be an ex-soviet moored type.

As damage repair continued, to our north twenty eight nautical miles off Failaka Island at 0715 hr, 3/6

Honest question to @sendahms and other @mngop & @MinnesotaDFL legislators. If I am teaching the Civil War to 7th graders, how much time should I devote? What key events, people, concepts should I discuss? How should I assess? Remember, I have 50 minute class periods. #mnleg
I'll take it another step further, using the same parameters?
How much time, ... etc. should I devote to the #WWI? Who do I include, exclude? What outside resources can I bring in and which must I avoid? Remember these are 13 year olds and we have 173 school days.
Repeat this for the following:
#RevolutionaryWar
#Warof1812
#MexicanAmericanWar
#IndianWars
#SpanishAmericanWar
#WWI
#WWII
#Vietnam
#KoreanWar
#ColdWar
#GulfWar
#WarInAfghanistan
#WarOnTerror

What battles do we focus on? How do we build context? Outcomes?

I was at the UN right after the #GulfWar. I had something dreadful to say abt #SaddamHussein on a daily basis, which he deserved b/c he invaded #Kuwait. The Iraqi media compared me to an unparalleled serpent. I happened to have a snake pin, and wore it to my next meeting on Iraq.
The press asked me about it, I thought, “Well, this is fun.” On good days, I wore flowers butterflies & balloons, on bad days, all kinds of bugs & carnivorous animals, as an additional way of expressing what I was saying a visual way to deliver a message.

I had an arrow pin that looked like a missile. When we negotiated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty the Russian foreign minister asked, “Is that one of your missile interceptors you’re wearing?” And I responded, “Yes. We make them very small. Let’s negotiate.”
