8. Thank you. Ever since yesterday, I've been trying to

run down an identity for the rocket remains that have been posted as photos. They looked to me like a variant of some Katyusha system or another. By doing a long series of Google Image searches, I discovered that others have been doing the same thing, but they appear to have more knowledge of such weapons systems than I do. My own knowledge is old and based on Russian Katyusha systems like the BM-14.

As you say, the UN knows weapons systems. Given the evidence on the scene, I'm sure they've identified the system already, and that information will become part of the overall evaluation of what happened.

Anyhow, I found the search interesting, and the information I found interesting as well.

It has nothing to do with my view of what, if anything, should be by the US. I'm a non-involvement person when it comes to the Middle East, at least in principle. However, we most certainly are already involved, so that adds several factors to what may be decided.

I dislike warfare intensely, but think that facts are a good thing.
