Hezbollah chief says Al-Qaeda
´tricked´ to fight in Syria

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/18/2012 12:41:11 AM

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned Al-Qaeda on Sunday that it had been tricked into fighting in Syria, and that the rebellion would not be able to topple the regime of President Bashar al-Assad militarily. "The Americans, Europeans and some governments in the Arab and Muslim world have set a trap for you in Syria," the head of Lebanon´s most powerful military force said. "They have opened the entire country for you to congregate there from all corners of the world and kill one another," he said, in a speech broadcast during an annual university graduation ceremony

Comments:
While I cannot believe there is anyone currently in the 0bamaNation smart enough to set up a "sting" like this on al Qaeda, it does merit thought. And, it took them 21 months to figure this out? Must be Bush´s fault.

Well that´s an interesting take... At least he admits the majority of Syrians are with Assad... not the invaders.

And to think if Obama didn´t try to interfere, Benghazi wouldn´t have happened. From what I´ve heard, he was negotiating to move Libya´s weapons into Syria for the rebels to take out Assad.

No,no,no.According to Obama,the left and the media the Syrian invaders are good ole boys just wanting a taste of democracy. Even the Hezbullies can see through this western liberal´s scheme.I don´t think they´re smart enough to set a trap for alqueda but they want radical Islam where ever they can get it,especially in Israel´s neighborhood.Assad hanging in there would be a huge defeat for Obama.

And the problem with that is what, exactly?

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie publicly apologized Thursday for controversial lane closures last year that were arranged by his associates as an apparent act of political revenge, and fired a top aide who was at the center of the scandal. "I come out here to apologize to the people of New Jersey," he said. "I am embarrassed and humiliated." The governor added: "I am stunned by the abject stupidity that was shown here." (Snip) Christie stressed Thursday that he was not involved and that while his political style is tough, "I am not a bully." He said repeatedly that he was betrayed by his staff. Christie maintained that, until this week,

Don´t expect to be greeted with a smile if you attempt to visit this island - you´ll be lucky to make it out alive as spears and arrows fly towards you. North Sentinel Island, part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands which is a group of 572 islands in the Bay of Bengal between Myanmar and Indonesia, could be the hardest (and perhaps least desirable) place in the world to visit. The locals who live here just don´t like visitors ... and never have. The inhabitants are a tribe of Sentinels said to be direct descendants from the first humans to emerge from Africa. It's estimated that they have lived in the Andaman Islands for up to 60,000 years,

She shot to fame as the refined Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey. But Michelle Dockery has poked fun at her aristocratic alter-ego in a hilarious new Funny Or Die skit, narrated by Jon Hamm. Appearing alongside The Shield‘s Michael Chiklis in the spoof video, the British actress transformed her ladylike image and emerged as gun-toting crime fighter, Connie Tough. Trading in her elegant gowns in favour of a slick trouser suit, the 32-year-old star appeared as a tough-talking Chicago police detective in the fictional drama, entitled Tough Justice. Batting one criminal to the floor, she growled: ´You´re going away

New York - Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN late Sunday. Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an official announcement about the race as early as Monday. Cheney´s surprising decision to jump into the race, an announcement made in a YouTube video last summer, roiled Republican politics in the Wyoming, a state Dick Cheney represented in Congress for five

Beijing - Dennis Rodman said Monday he wants to show that North Korea isn´t so bad, as he took a team of former NBA players on a trip for an exhibition game on Kim Jong Un´s birthday. The flamboyant Hall of Famer headed to the North Korean capital from Beijing with a squad of a dozen former basketball stars including Vin Baker and Cliff Robinson in what Rodman calls "basketball diplomacy," although U.S. officials have criticized his efforts. "It´s about trying to connect two countries together in the world, to let people know that: Do you know what? Not every country in the world is that bad, especially North Korea," Rodman told

Washington - The public debate over the fate of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden intensified on Sunday with conservative Senator Rand Paul calling for a light prison term as punishment for Snowden´s disclosure of information on government surveillance programs. Paul, a Republican, said in an interview on ABC´s "This Week" that Snowden does not deserve the death penalty or life in prison for the leaks, which have rattled the U.S. intelligence community, not to mention an American public that had been unaware of the extent of NSA data collection. Instead, Paul spoke favorably of "some penalty of a

Washington - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Sunday Democrats will focus on the middle class in 2014 and attempt to extend emergency unemployment benefits. "It´s the right thing to do. We have long-term unemployment. That´s why the American people support this -- Democrats, Independents and Republicans," the Nevada senator said on CBS´ "Face the Nation." He said he is supporting a plan that would restart the benefits for three months before determining how to offset the cost of doing so. The support of five Republicans is necessary to avoid a filibuster. But many Republicans have spoken out against approving benefit checks

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has given the biggest hint yet that the next series will be the last. He admitted he would not be able to continue to write the show’s storylines at the same time as working on his next major project, a TV drama in the US called The Gilded Age. Asked about this new programme, Fellowes, 64, said in an interview: “It will happen when Downton finishes because I just couldn’t do both at once.” He confirmed there would still be a fifth series of Downton, which is expected to be screened this year, but added: “I don’t know yet if there is a season six, but it’s not going to go on for ever. It won’t be Perry Mason.”

Jerusalem — US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday said he had won Saudi support for his efforts to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, in a day of whistlestop diplomacy to key Arab allies. The top US diplomat, on the fourth day of his 10th visit to Israel and the West Bank, promised any agreed plan would be "fair and balanced." (Snip) But he warned his efforts could ultimately fail, saying he could not tell when "the last pieces may decide to fall into place, or may fall on the floor, and leave the puzzle unfinished." Kerry briefed the key Jordanian and Saudi stakeholders about his intense shuttling between Israel's Prime Minister

Jerusalem - Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that Iran might play a role at the peace talks on Syria in Switzerland this month. It was the first time that a senior American official has indicated that Iran might participate in the session, which is scheduled to begin Jan. 22. Mr. Kerry said there would be limits on Iran’s involvement unless it accepted that the purpose of the conference should be to work out arrangements for governing Syria if opponents of President Bashar al-Assad could persuade him to relinquish power. Iran has provided military and political support to to Mr. Assad. “Now, could they contribute from the

Iraqi tribes taking lead

USA Today, by Jim Michaels    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/5/2014 9:09:28 PM     Post Reply
The Iraqi army is letting local police and tribes lead the fight against al-Qaeda in Fallujah and Ramadi, a strategy that reflects concerns that a large influx of government forces could provoke a backlash from the mainly Sunni cities. The tactic also runs the risk that al-Qaeda militants will establish a foothold in the Iraqi cities and score a major propaganda victory before they are expelled. (Snip) Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that while America will support Iraq, the U.S. won´t be sending any troops. "This is a fight that belongs to the Iraqis. That is exactly what the president and the world decided some time ago when we left

Good morning and Happy New Year from the Capitol. Kids are always saying something isn’t fair, but sometimes they’ve got a point. Did you know that today in America, only four percent of all federal funding for cancer research goes to childhood cancer? That’s right, four percent for all pediatric cancers combined. This doesn’t just set us back in the race for cutting-edge cures and treatments. It places a ceiling on a child’s ability to overcome obstacles and do great things. I’m sure this issue hits home for many of you. It certainly does for our family. Livingston, our oldest,

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated.By the end of an extraordinary and exhaustive 107-minute news conference, Chris Christie had transformed himself from a belligerent chief executive, famed for ridiculing his detractors, into a deeply wronged father figure, shaking his head, whispering his words and verging on tears. The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s traffic headache dubbed “Bridgegate,” have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours. By comparison, that´s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama´s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. “While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,” said the conservative media watchdog.

Europe is set to suffer more severe droughts due to climate change and increased water use, scientists have warned. By the end of the century, southern Europe in particular will have 80 per cent more droughts than at present. New research by the European Commission predicts that water shortages will be made worse by population growth and increased demand. Drought can have a serious economic and social impact and is thought to have cost Europe over €100billion (or £83billion) in the past three decades alone. Researchers used computer models to predict which parts of Europe could be worst hit by increasing temperatures and intensive

A mob of teenagers have been caught on tape robbing a convenience store in Bryan, Texas. Surveillance video shows the kids rushing through the store, grabbing everything they can get their hands on as girls are seen twerking and doing the splits outside. The frightening ransacking incident took place Saturday as store clerk Terry Polsgrove, 19, was shutting up for the night. A few teenagers are seen trickling into the Chevron Food Mart, then, all of a sudden, 30 to 40 teenagers are dancing and acting ´crazy´ down the aisles and in the parking lot.

Butter´s back—and with a creamy vengeance. Foodies extol its flavor. Purists praise its freedom from trans fats. Annual per capita butter consumption in the U.S. (now 5.6 pounds), has risen 25 percent in the last decade to a 40-year high, according to American Butter Institute. "Our sales have been growing by double-digits every year," says Albert Straus, owner of the Straus Family Creamery, whose cows graze the bucolic hills above Tomales Bay, in western Marin County, Calif. Staus´ European-style butter has proved incredibly popular, he says, especially among chefs. It was created 20 years ago at the suggestion of famed California

Chris Christie unleashed a fiery defense of his leadership skills, telling reporters he’s not a bully and that he’s not your typical focus group-tested politician. An unidentified female reporter asked the governor whether this scandal continues the narrative that he is a “political bully” and whether it compromises his ability to lead into the future. Christie responded: Listen, politics ain’t beanbag, okay? Everybody in the country who engages in politics knows that. On the other hand, that’s very, very different than saying that someone’s a bully. I have

When the Tea Party movement emerged to challenge President Obama in 2009, it also posed a counterweight to the “compassionate conservative” wing of the Republican Party, which was defined by the expansionist policies of President George W. Bush. After years of being marginalized, compassionate conservatives – emboldened by the overreach of Tea Party conservatives during last fall’s government shutdown fight – are attempting to reassert control over the party.{SNIP}Throughout the piece, Gerson and Wehner make arguments that are very difficult to distinguish philosophically from liberalism.
