Wednesday Open Thread: Aqaba Edition

PUBLIUS

Today, in 1917, Arab troops, under the command of Col. T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) capture the port city of Aqaba from the Ottoman Empire.

We could make a quip about one of the more decisive Arab victories in centuries being led by a Westerner, but will take the prudent course instead.
