And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Iran violates the first rule of "secret" underground drone bases.
In a boastful flex of military muscle at a time of increasing tensions, the Iranian army has provided a glimpse inside its new subterranean drone base.
The facility's specific location wasn't disclosed, but it's said to buried hundreds of meters underground somewhere in the Zagros Mountains, a nearly thousand-mile-long range spanning most of western Iran.
"Strategic UAV Base 313" was showcased in a Saturday report on Iran state television. The reporter was blindfolded during a 45-minute helicopter flight to the facility.
Ok, draw a circle at a 45 minute helicopter ride from the airport, and look for helicopter landing pads.

Forest service accidentally starts a huge fire, then, learning nothing, they do it again. Keep matches away from these people.
"... the agency said on Friday.... Forest Service investigators determined the Calf Canyon Fire was caused by a 'burn pile' of branches that the agency thought was out but reignited.... That blaze on April 22 merged with the Hermits Peak Fire, which the USFS started with a controlled burn that went out of control on April 6, the agency previously reported.... Blazing a more than 40-mile-long... path up the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the fire has destroyed watersheds and forests used for centuries by Indo-Hispano farming villages and Native American communities."
"Indo-Hispano?" Let's force everyone into categories, shall we? More woke idiocy.
