Sergei Krikalev was in space when the Soviet Union collapsed. Unable to come home, he wound up spending two times longer than originally planned in orbit. They simply refused to bring him back.

This photo caught my attention for various reasons. I noticed on various occasions a general understanding among many Americans I came across (the vast majority are religious Christians and/or conservatives) on the social networks or even reality who refer to Arabs and Muslims as Camel riders and goats and sheep shaggers. The soldier in this photo is seemingly one of them.
