The presentation is a real page turner and includes such damning evidence as
- an assortment of old coffee cans
- a super high-tech infrared detecting rock, featuring the kind of sophisticated PIR technology currently only available in high street hardware stores and toy shops
- pictures of some holes
Given the specific nature of this intelligence material it is no wonder that the presentation was made anonymously, lest the Iranians pick up some clues as to the identity of the high level moles involved in its collation
I particularly enjoyed this slide of mortar shipping containers
Obviously the insurgents forked out for Amazon's Express Delivery option on that particular consignment.
All very scary stuff (particularly the old coffee cans) and the sooner the UK joins the US in 'doing a Cambodia' on Iran the better. And if we catch anyone supplying the Iranians we'll have to bomb those fuckers as well.
And so on. And so on. And so on...
After all, the War on Terror is a global conflict so it can't possibly be won until we make war on the entire world
which makes a grand total of three consecutive posts on the subject of 81mm mortar rounds, which is precisely three more posts than I ever intended to make in my life. Enough...
Oh sod it...
Here's a screen shot of just one more slide from that presentation...
No doubt, fans of the US standard MM-DD-YY date format that pisses off so much of the rest of the world will be delighted to discover that the Iranians also apparently use it - presumably because the US is such a big export customer for Iranian produced munitions...
Alternatively, maybe there's some bozo out there holding a spray can and some poorly thought out stencils on the receiving end of a right good kicking as I type.
And if I seem overly obsessed with this particular issue that concern dates way back to all the outright lies we were fed before the 2003 invasion - anthrax labs hidden in ice cream vans, 45 minutes to Doom, crap like that. It sounded like hyped-up nonsense at the time and the current media campaign to lure us into another bloody war has the same stink about it.
Right, that's definitely enough. That presentation was so all-encompassing in its shittiness and stupidity I'm starting to half think that it must be a deliberate ploy designed to suck Muppets like me in for God knows what reason. There's a whole Internet filled with knob gags and scat out there that I would much rather write about and link to instead...
