"The new U.S. troops have increased the available combat power in Iraq by about 40 percent, from 15 brigades to the equivalent of 21 brigades. Generals Petraeus and Odierno allocated only two of the additional Army brigades to the capital. The other three Army brigades and the equivalent of a Marine regiment they deployed in the surrounding areas, known as the "Baghdad belt." There, under the guise of Operation Phantom Thunder, they are now working to disrupt the car-bomb and suicide-bomb networks that have been supporting al Qaeda's counter-surge since January."

"From Nigeria to Indonesia, Christians are under siege in virtually every single country in the Muslim world, the victims of countless acts of discrimination, depredation, brutality, and murder that are so widespread and systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This time, however, the perpetrators of this Holocaust aren't wearing swastikas, but kufi skull caps and hijabs.
"Despite there being no known connection between the events in Gaza and those in Tripoli, the proliferation of the use of Islamic appellations (The Islamic Resistance Movement [i.e. Hamas], Fath Al-Islam, Hizbullah, Jund Al-Sham, Islamic Jihad) has made Arab and Islamic public opinion ask itself whether there is something in Islam, as a faith or as a practice, that leads to all this violence and aggression. And it is understandable that they should ask this.
"They came under cover of darkness, with a mission to bring criminal activity to light. But now it appears the early morning drug raids that GTA residents woke up to Thursday morning were a lot more widespread than anyone realized. It involves a large number of suspects stretching from B.C. to Ontario and into Michigan, an alleged criminal marijuana distribution network, a foiled kidnapping attempt and even the arrest of a Toronto officer."
Does the great military strategist want to tell us what will happen if All troops were pulled out of Iraq or Afghanistan? There would be peace in the world? Obviously he knows nothing about the enemy, who is also fighting in Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria, Thailand.Too bad he reacts in a knee jerk action instead of trying to think 4 steps ahead.too bad he doesn't read jihadist sites- he might wake up.He apparently knows nothing about keeping an enemy the farthest from a target.Appeasement doesn't work- Chamberlain thought it did- he was wrong.

"The Hamas strategy is shrewd and clever, because it has correctly assessed that the decadent west will only too eagerly embrace its lies. It knows that the BBC is only too willing to be its friend. Already, TV and radio shows are ringing round to find studio guests who will ‘argue against the view that we should now recognise Hamas’. Appeasement is now well and truly out of the closet. Those who believe that fascism should be fought and defeated are now on the back foot.
"The origins of the eight suspects arrested so far are diverse — Iraq, Jordan, India, Saudi Arabia — but all spent time at NHS hospitals or medical schools. One of them, who drove a blazing Jeep into an airport terminal and set fire to himself, is now being treated for burns that cover 90% of his body in the same hospital that unsuspectingly employed him. If he survives, he will owe his life to his intended victims."

"Nowhere in this story is there any reference to border security. Nowhere in this story is there reference to border control. You know, Scott Rasmussen, the pollster, says according to his data, the primary reason that there was so much opposition to this was no border control, no stopping of the invasion of illegals into the country. Amnesty was bad enough, but it wasn't the one thing that bothered everybody. It was border control. Note that in Washington they still don't get it. And, folks, they're not going to, because the people that are behind this and want this to happen want there to be a constant flow of "farm workers," they are called here in this story. The current crop of low skilled and uneducated people that form the labor pool that business would love to have. Now, there is one thing good to be said about this. One of the problems with this bill, one of the many -- I mean it's hard to single out one as being the overriding problem. But when you see on a piece of legislation the word "comprehensive," that is the wrong way to go about anything, trying to fix everything under the sun and add a whole bunch of new provisions that nobody knows about because it's not happening in sunlight, no committee hearings, no nothing. The way this thing ought to happen is incrementally."
"Lawyers are a major concern to police tracing dirty money, said Chris Mathers, a crime and risk consultant who once worked undercover as a money launderer for the Mounties.
"If you take your dog for a two minute walk, I don't think it's asking too much to take the poo home with you," Fletcher said. "There is zero tolerance in this city for dog poop left in parks. And there is zero tolerance for dogs pooping on sidewalks."
