Egyptian army soldiers stand behind a barbed wire barricade during clashes on a side street near Tahrir Square in Cairo November 22, 2011. Egyptians frustrated with military rule battled police in the streets again on Tuesday as the generals scrambled to cope with the cabinet's proffered resignation after bloodshed that has jolted plans for Egypt's first free election in decades.

Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Nothing new on the western front, unfortunately. At least having a holiday in Egypt is very cheap now (thinking of going to the Red Sea for a week < 300€ after new years)
It's half naked people on boats. That's all.
Here in Finland we call that "summer".

The German Armed Forces will get the RGW-90 (also known as MATADOR) rocket launcher for urban warfare scenarios. Nice!

With Afghanistan becoming the latest hot spot, many seemed to have forgotten about another crisis area.
For many weeks the situation in Kosovo has become worse, with ethnic Serbs blocking border posts and streets. Clashes with KFOR forces escalated today again, when unknown gunmen opened fire on German troops, wounding two, including a high-ranking officer.





(After not posting here for some days, I´ll just post two pics, I hope that I´ll be forgiven for that)

Remnants of a Fennek scout vehicle, that was hit by a roadside bomb. All three crew members survived with light injuries.

You'd be surprised what kind of conditions crews could come crawling out of :P There doesn't seem to be any huge life risking penetration though.
