By the Time I Devour Phoenix

This is a dust storm, or “Haboob”. It’s about ten thousand feet high, and fifty miles wide. It is not a trailer for Roland Emmerich’s new movie about the Dust Bowl.

Watch a 50-Mile Wide Dust Storm Devour Phoenix [Atlantic, with more video and photos]

Everyone looks the same covered in sand.

a haboob is what knocked out the failed rescue mission of the iranian hostages that jimmy carter at least had the balls to order. ever wonder why w the shoe dodger never ordered a strike against bin laden? cowardice, complacency, or complicity?

@jwmcsame: I always thought Jimmy ordered that mission out of fear of Ted Koppel.
