Border agents on horseback round up Haitian migrants

 

The agents were pictured riding across the river and grabbing at migrants trying to enter the US

Mmmm ... 

Wonder what the photo truly conveys ...

• Border Patrol agents pushed back against the Biden administration following its criticism of their treatment of migrants  
• Photos and video Sunday appeared to show agents on horseback whipping Haitian migrants with reins at the Rio Grande river between Mexico and the US
• But they insist they are just using the horses' reigns to control the animals, and not aiming to harm any of the migrants.

Who knows?

I thought some of the guys may find this of interest!

I could not find the Air craft sight.

Titans of war left to rust: Eerie pictures show abandoned tanks, fighter jets and warships rotting away in military bases around the world Eerie pictures show abandoned tanks, fighter jets and warships rotting away

Rows upon rows of tanks, the last Soviet-made locomotive and a one-of-a-kind invention are among the eerie images captured of abandoned military equipment in more than 50 countries around the world. At first glance, these boats, tanks and aeroplanes appear to be lined up and ready for action, but in reality they have been left to rot. Photographer and history fanatic, Dmitry Osadchy, from St Petersburg, has trekked through swamps, forests and deserts to reach closely guarded facilities the public never usually sees. The 38-year-old uses a drone to capture his aerial images and has travelled the world tracking down abandoned military aircraft and vehicles from his native Russia to the UAE since buying his first drone five years ago.

Quite amazing photos ... that first dramatic plane photo is taken in Russia.

 

Britain’s nuclear-powered submarines are to use Australia as a base so that they can have a more persistent presence in the Indo-Pacific region.

 

Senior government sources said that the AUKUS pact could lead to the Royal Navy’s £1.4 billion Astute-class attack submarines undergoing deep maintenance in the region so they can stay deployed for longer rather than returning to the Faslane naval base in Scotland.

 

The plans would materialize once the Australians start building their own fleet of at least eight nuclear-powered submarines over the coming years with the help of the British and Americans.

Mmmm ... does that make us a prime target??
