Surface to Air Jordan

So yesterday in Jordan a group of holy rollers, er, warriors tried to fire 3 Russian made Katyusha rockets at docked naval vessels linked with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit in Aqaba, Jordan. I say tried because they whiffed. One of the rockets flew over the bow of the USS Ashland and hit a warehouse. Another missile fizzled out and landed about 15 yards from the airport in Eilat, Israel. Another whiff. The Katyusha rocket is well known for being innacurate, so naturally terrorists gravitate to them. These rockets were fired from a local warehouse recently rented by 4 people with Egyptian and Iraqi nationalities. It shouldn't be long before these idiots find themselves on the wrong end of a dark and disturbing torture session in a dark and secluded Jordanian jail cell. One of the moments of comic relief in this story is the reaction of the Al Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades PR department. "A group of our holy warriors ... targeted a gathering of American military ships docking in Aqaba port and also in Eilat port with three Katyusha rockets and the warriors returned safe to their headquarters." Only terrorists can find cause for celebration in failure. Ahh, the terrorist spirit- if at first you don't succeed, strap on a bomb belt and find an open marketplace.
