An American soldier was killed inside Pakistan yesterday after an attempted peace meeting on one of the world’s most sensitive borders erupted in gunfire.
Several other Nato troops were wounded amid sensational claims that Pakistani forces were responsible. Pakistan said that one of its troops also died in the clash, but blamed militants for the shooting.
I listened to the news all day yesterday, and didn’t hear a word about this shooting. This is not good.
Mesquite police announced Monday the arrests of three 17-year-old suspects after a weekend shotgun shooting at West Mesquite High School.
Latret Thompson, a Dallas student, got into an argument with some West Mesquite students at a school spring theater show Saturday, Mesquite police Lt. Steve Callarman said. Mr. Thompson then called two friends – Keldrick Payton and Lebreon Johnson – for help.
When did kids decide the only way to resolve problems was with a gun?
Although last month’s Supreme Court ruling to uphold the ban on partial-birth abortion was a welcome boost for pro-life forces, they are still recovering from last year’s defeats.
Isn’t it a shame we have to do battle to save the lives of the unborn? You’d think anyone with a brain would realize what abortion really is…..murder.
The jostling among possible wild card entrants into the 2008 presidential race is heating up, with a former House speaker, Newt Gingrich, saying yesterday that there is a “great possibility” that he will mount a White House bid.
I like Newt. Smart cookie. But is he ‘presidential’? Hmmm…not in my opinion.
“My integrity is at stake. My manhood is at stake. My character is at stake. It’s just not right for them to do this. I’m not going to let anyone walk on my integrity and my manhood,” Smith said. “This has never been done before. … If you don’t respect me as chairman, then take the committee.”
If this guy’s ‘manhood is at stake’ over goose liver, then he’s got some serious issues.
Proponents of a proposal to teach a Bible-based curriculum in South Carolina public schools say it could help students unlock American symbolism, decipher religious references in literature and open up a world of historical and cultural understanding.
I think it’s a brilliant idea. The Bible is rich in history. The faith part is pretty good too, IMHO, but it would be nice for kids to learn that history didn’t begin the day they were born.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) yesterday offered a unique litmus test for Democrats seeking a strongly anti-war supplemental, slating two votes to gauge support for competing plans for Iraq withdrawal.
Runnin’ Reid has learned NOTHING after being ‘praised’ by al Qaeda. Disagree with the war all you want, but when you are putting our soldiers in harms way, STFU in public!
