The real Sunday "toy"


This is the other half of yesterday’s pic. I couldn't resist putting it up: different colour, different location and different troops, but the same toy – the Turkish-built Otokar APC.

The location is Kabul, Afghanistan, the picture was taken in September 2004 (I know not by whom) … and the vehicle is Turkish-operated. We sometimes forget that Turkey is in Nato and I bet most people are unaware that Turkey has a sizeable presence in Afghanistan. My colleague – and many others – think that they should take over the policing of Iraq as well, to say nothing of Gaza, Lebanon ... we are talking Ottoman empire here.

She could be right.
