Well, they are telling us that the BP Horizon oil well is finally capped for good. While oil has, allegedly, not been gushing into the Gulf of Mexico since July 15th, it continues to come ashore on coastal islands and wetlands in Louisiana and cause worry over the struggling tourism industry and seafood contamination.
absent from U.S. mainstream media is a story reporting that at least 19 people were killed in Pakistan after attacks by two unmanned U.S. drone planes. Modern warfare is so pussified compared to the good ole days when soldiers would just march toward each other in battle. This robot warfare reminds me of the movie, "Toys." Hollywood really does desensitize us, as seen below with the psycho kid who killed his brother.
More U.S. troops were killed in Afghanistan after a helicopter crashed. No enemy fire was reported. Although it was first reported that the crash killed 9 NATO troops, it was later released that they were all U.S. troops.
Russia plans to purchase armament and military equipment for 19 trillion rubles (about 613.5 billion U.S. dollars) by 2020. Despite protests from government officials of Israel and the U.S., Russia will complete the delivery of anti-ship missiles to Syria this year and may sell more arms to the Mideast nation. Is there a chance we can see a Cold War sequel? Everybody, under your desks!!!
Tension is growing between Japan and China over the release of a Chinese fisherman detained in Japan after a ship collision in disputed waters.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad warned the Obama administration today that if Iran's nuclear facilities are attacked, the U.S. will face a war that "would know no boundaries."
China plans on building two nuclear reactors for Pakistan. Wow, that's nice of them.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) improperly spied on U.S. activists involved in First Amendment-protected activities and mischaracterised nonviolent civil disobedience as terrorism, which placed innocent activists on terror watch lists, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) charged Tuesday in response to a new report by the Justice Department's Inspector General. We are in a police state, and the FBI can use its surveillance abilities to spy on anyone and subsequently use IRS powers to curb free speech.
Does anybody else think that this whole "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy issue is ridiculous? Al Franken crying over it and McCain getting all heated, why do these politicians have their panties in a bunch? Just let it go and let whoever wants to join the military join. What a ridiculous waste of time! We are continuing to embrace bigotry and sully the reputation of the United States throughout the world.
The Cuban minister of foreign affairs is presenting his report entitled, "The necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed on Cuba by the United States," which Cuba is to present for the 19th time before the UN General Assembly today.
short, crazy, blond bitch caught a monster alligator then proceeded to torture it to death during South Carolina's alligator hunting season. Hunting fuggin suggs.
The US Food and Drug Administration will hear both sides arguments this week when it begins a two-day meeting on whether to approve the marketing of a genetically engineered fish, which would be the first such animal approved for human consumption. The approval of this genetically modified salmon would surely open the door for more GMO's. Personally, I would love it if they really made buffalo wings, like miniature buffalo's with chicken wings. Man, that'd be delicious.
Is there fascism within the food industry? Check out Senate bill S. 510, Food Safety Modernization Act, which already passed in the House as HR 2749. Some have demonized the bill as ultimate food fascism where the FDA will micromanage even small farms and co-ops to the point where it will become illegal to grow, share, trade or sell homegrown food.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will announce on Tuesday a U.S. contribution of more than $50 million toward providing clean cooking stoves in developing countries to reduce deaths from smoke inhalation and fight climate change.
Indiana teen on trial for strangling his kid brother reportedly wanted to be like the main character of Dexter, the Showtime hit show about a serial killer with a conscience. This kid obviously didn't watch the show or he'd know that murdering his brother violated the code of Harry.
