The claws are out in Downing

David Cameron and George Osborne have insisted they enjoy better relations in Downing Street that previous occupants of Number 10 and 11. But there was an angry confrontation between neighbours on the famous street this morning, with claws out while the police looked on indifferently. Fortunately the dawn battle was between Freya, the Chancellor's cat, and Larry, the PM's pet puss, who was seen scampering back into Number 10 to lick his wounds. Today the Prime Minister's official spokesman refused to get drawn into the cat fight. Relations between the two cats have been strained since Larry lost his place

Can you imagine the scene when this assignment was given to Matt Chorley, who is the Mailonline Political Editor? It's wonderfully written, quite funny.

The US has agreed for the first time to sell new AH-64E Apache attack helicopters to Indonesia, US officials say. The deal is worth $500m (£320m), including radar, training and maintenance. Indonesia will purchase eight new Apache helicopters, made by Boeing. The deal was announced during a visit by US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel, who is on a tour of South East Asia, to Jakarta. "Providing Indonesia these world-class helicopters is an example of our commitment to help build Indonesia´s military capability," he said in a statement. The deal will help Indonesia respond to "a range of contingencies including counter-piracy operations and maritime awareness", it




Syria crisis: UN inspectors´
convoy ´hit by sniper fire´

Unidentified snipers have opened fire on a convoy of UN experts investigating suspected chemical weapons attacks in Syria´s capital, the UN has said. One car was shot at "multiple times", forcing the convoy to turn back. Syrian state media blamed opposition "terrorists" for the attack, though the claim could not be verified. The UN team is now reported to have resumed its mission, entering the western district of Muadhamiya to gather evidence. Hundreds died in alleged attacks on Wednesday in five districts near Damascus. The US said there was little doubt Syrian forces used chemical weapons in the attacks, which reportedly killed more than 300

Syria: the moral case for military

I think there´s a case for British military intervention in Syria provided it´s approved by a majority of MPs, as my colleague Douglas Carswell says, and provided the House of Commons isn´t misled by the Government. By "military intervention" I don´t mean a full-scale invasion with troops on the ground. I mean a Cruise missile strike against military targets to deter Assad from using chemical weapons again. Simply recalling Parliament won´t do. The Foreign Secretary will first need to set out the case in the House of Commons for limited intervention, making sure he doesn´t misrepresent the evidence that Assad´s

The Prime Minister had been expected to return to London on Wednesday or Thursday but has decided to return early as preparations for a possible series of missile strikes gather pace. Britain, France and America are said to be united in their determination not to allow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to get away with what they believe was a chemical weapons attack on his own people last week.

A few weeks ago, a British national newspaper was visited by a detachment of national security agents who demanded that its computers and hard drives be destroyed. The security men then stood over its staff while they smashed their equipment to pieces. In the peace-time history of a free country, this incident is about as shocking as it gets. [Snip] The reasons that this scene--which looks, on the face of it, like something out of East Germany in the 1970s--is apparently perfectly acceptable seem to be: a) the data in the computers was a threat to the national security of

What targets would the coalition hit? The favored option among top brass is for limited Western action using ‘stand-off’ weapons from long distance to disrupt Assad’s ability to carry out chemical attacks and damage his military machine. [Snip]Military analysts believe an attack could last between 24 and 48 hours and would target key regime installations. These would include Syria’s integrated air defense system, command and control bunkers, communications hubs, government buildings, missile sites and Assad’s air force. The dictator’s use of air power has been a huge advantage for the regime, and eliminating or weakening it would tilt the odds

A South Carolina man and several of his friends say they were refused service at a Wild Wing Cafe in Charleston last month and asked to leave. The reason: Michael Brown and his group of 24 friends and family members are African-American, and a another customer--a white woman--complained that she felt threatened by the group. That´s according to Brown, who was celebrating his cousin´s last day in Charleston with a night out at the Wild Wing Cafe. Brown took his beef to social media, and the story went viral. The apparent race-based snub came after Brown and his group waited

The U.S. is set to launch missile strikes against the Syrian regime in retaliation for its barbaric chemical attack on civilians.

Nato’s main military powers are moving closer to armed intervention in Syria. America, notoriously reluctant under Barack Obama to admit that its “red line” has been crossed, said yesterday there was “very little doubt” that Bashar al-Assad’s forces had killed hundreds of civilians with a chemical weapon last week. [Snip] Under mounting external pressure, Damascus has belatedly signalled that UN inspectors can access the site of the attack, but by the time they do so, the evidence will have deteriorated. The outcome of military intervention, probably missile attacks on government targets, is impossible to predict. Suffice it to say that,

Lt Col David Parkinson, 58, and his wife Sonja, who have two daughters, were attacked by a gang of armed men at their Lolldaiga Hills ranch as they slept in the early hours of Sunday morning. The hooded gunmen tied up Mrs Parkinson but she managed to escape during the initial struggle and lock herself in a nearby strongroom, only to return to find her husband’s lifeless body. Mr Parkinson, who received an OBE in 1998, was the deputy director of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy for five years from 2003. The Duke of Cambridge fell in love with the reserve after

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets. Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week. [Snip] The escalation comes as a direct response to what the Government is convinced was a gas attack perpetrated by Syrian forces on a civilian district of Damascus last Wednesday.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the “Million Muslim March” planned in Washington D.C. on 9/11.

Thousands of America’s patriotic bikers are organizing an enormous counter protest to the planned Million Muslim March on DC this Sept. 11.

On Saturday, Martin Luther King III, son of the civil rights icon, used a rally that honored the 50th anniversary of the Reverend Doctor´s "I Have a Dream" to politicize and inject race into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, asserting he was killed because of the color of his skin. "Sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin´s mother and father remind us that far too frequently the color of one´s skin remains a license to profile, arrest, and to even murder with no regard to the content of one´s character," Martin Luther King III declared.

Faces of Evil - that was the headline of the Australian Herald Sun when reporting the depraved murder of Aussie Christopher Lane. It is instructive to carry that theme further with a few more faces. (snip)There is an explosion of black mob violence. If you doubt that, read "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty. Across the country, degenerate people are violently attacking strangers in "the knockout game" ... just for ´fun´. Flash mobs swarm stores to plunder and pillage.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the jury verdict that freed the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was "questionable."

In a statement released this morning, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham call for the U.S. to "take limited military actions in Syria." “Recent reports and information from Syria lend additional credibility to what has been clear since last week: Assad and his forces have once again used chemical weapons against civilians in Syria and are, in fact, escalating their use. Their recent massacre of hundreds of men, women, and children around Damascus clearly constitutes the commission of a war crime, and it is the responsibility of civilized nations everywhere to ensure that those responsible are held accountable," the statement reads. “Now

WEST MELBOURNE -- Investigators say a Brevard County pizza delivery man took action into his own hands -- shooting and killing a would-be robber. Investigators said Byron Park, a Domino´s employee, had just delivered a pizza to one of the rooms at the Days Inn off US-192 near Interstate 95. Park, 54, went back to his car, sat down and starting counting his money and tip, waiting for his next call for a delivery. That’s when investigators said 32-year-old Fredrick Kelly Jr. approached him with a knife, demanding money and threatening to kill him. Park pulled out his firearm and fired once toward Kelly,

The far right has gotten into a dangerous habit (well, many habits but we’ll focus on one for now). Those who claim to be guardians of conservative purity assume what they advocate is popular. Therefore, the explanations for failing to get what they want must be betrayal or cowardice by their party, lies by the media, or inarticulateness. They imagine if they speak in shrill tones and hammer the same message over and over again they will prevail — provided of course they are not betrayed, undermined and hobbled by their own elected leaders and the devious vast left-wing conspiracy.

The day after thousands rallied to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, the National Mall looks like a trash dump. The grass from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War II Memorial is covered Sunday with empty soda cans, water bottles, boxed lunches, newspapers, a broken chair and rally signs. The Reflecting Pool also was filled with trash. Although the trash cans were full along the expanse, the attendees did not attempt to leave their garbage near the bins. Instead, they left everything on the grass where they stood. On Saturday, prominent Democrats such as Attorney General

Washington - U.S. intelligence officials are still trying to determine whether Syrian President Bashar Assad unleashed a deadly chemical weapons attack against his people earlier this week. That´s the word from the White House after President Barack Obama met with his national security team Saturday to discuss possible next steps in Syria. Officials have said Obama will decide how to respond once the facts are clear.
