New Report Says Syrian
Rebels Committed War Crimes

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/11/2013 3:58:03 AM

Beirut - Jihadi-led rebel fighters in Syria killed at least 190 civilians and abducted more than 200 during an offensive against pro-regime villages, committing a war crime, an international human rights group said Friday. (Snip) Witnesses said rebels went house to house, in some cases executing entire families and in other cases killing men and taking women and children hostages. The villagers belong to the minority Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam which forms the backbone of President Bashar Assad´s regime — and which Sunni Muslim extremists consider heretics. One survivor, Hassan Shebli,

Comments:
While this type of Islamic bloodletting is no surprise, the fact is, 0bama, like Holden ["Fast & Furious"], has been giving the "Syrian rebels" weapons. I bet that some of the bullet-ridden bodies there and in the future may be traced back to this stupid & irresponsible move by 0bama.

An Epidemic of
Carjackings Afflicts Newark
New York Times, by Marc Santora & Michael Schwirtz    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 12/28/2013 2:38:51 PM     Post Reply
The grocery shop in Newark was crowded on Monday, as customers picked up last-minute supplies for Christmas. (Snip) “It is like a diseased town,” said the Newark store owner, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution from the assailants in the Mercedes case, who have not been caught. “There are a lot of predators.” Carjackings are nothing new to Newark, a city that was among the nation’s worst for such crimes in the 1990s. Like other cities, Newark saw the number of carjackings fall in subsequent years. But they have returned to Newark with a vengeance. In 2007, there were 208 reported carjackings in all of New Jersey.

Five booze myths busted

Think you can avoid a hangover this holiday season by using a few old tricks? Think again. While the statistics suggest that we’re drinking a little less than we used to, average out the figures and they still equate to each Australian over the age of 15 drinking more than 10 litres of pure alcohol every year. Beer is our preferred tipple, followed by wine, spirits, pre-mixed drinks and cider, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The Christmas and New Year holiday is often a time when we indulge in more booze than usual. But when you’re deciding whether to have one more for the road, keep these myths in mind.

Washington - Heightened attention to the crime of sexual assault in the U.S. military may be causing more people to come forward and report problems. Defense officials cite the increased awareness as a possible reason the number of reported sexual assaults rose by more than 50% this year. More than 5,000 reports of sexual assault were filed during the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, compared to the 3,374 in 2012, according to early data obtained by The Associated Press. About 10 percent of the 2013 reports involved incidents that occurred before the victim got into the military, up from just 4 percent only a year ago.

They may look innocent enough but these two felines are responsible for a mini crime spree in the east of England. Christmas is a gift for Theo, a three-year-old Siamese cross belonging to Rachael Drouet and Paul Edwards from Ipswich. He is a seasoned cat burglar, regularly bringing home "treasures" from neighbours´ houses. But this year, Theo has really got into the spirit of Christmas. He has forsaken his usual diet of clothing, phone chargers and other cats´ toys for a selection of Christmas decorations which his owners believe he is pilfering from their neighbours´ trees.

Egypt´s government ordered a freeze on the assets of all members of the Muslim Brotherhood guidance bureau and its linked NGO, Hassan Saleh, the lawyer of the Islamist organisation, told Ahram Online on Friday. A total of 132 Brotherhood leaders saw their assets frozen in execution of a judicial ruling to ban all their activities and takeover their assets, Ezzat Khamis, assistant to the minister of justice, announced in a press conference on Thursday. Neither the exact value of the confiscated assets nor the names were declared in the conference.

A softly spoken, willowy beauty who weeps when she describes her ordeal, Ikumi Yoshimatsu seems an unlikely figure to lead a fight against one of Japan’s most powerful talent agencies. Yet she has become the heroine in a drama that her supporters say has exposed one of the nation’s dirtiest secrets: claims that the Yakuza helps to run the entertainment industry. Since she became the first Japanese woman to win the Miss International title, Ms Yoshimatsu says she has been blackballed by the industry, stalked and threatened for refusing to join a talent agency. She is now in hiding after filing a criminal complaint against a top executive with the

Teenagers are turning their back on Facebook ‘in their droves’ and switching to simpler social networks and messaging apps, new research has found. Not only are 16-18 year olds moving on to rivals such as Snapchat, Whatsapp and even Twitter, teens are embarrassed to be so much as associated with Facebook, as their parents adopt the network, researchers said. (Snip) “Parents have worked out how to use the site and see it as a way for the family to remain connected. In response, the young are moving on to cooler things. “What we’ve learned from working with 16-18 year olds in the UK is that Facebook is not just on the slide, it is basically

A virulent form of ransomware has now infected about quarter of a million Windows computers, according to a report by security researchers. Cryptolocker scrambles users´ data and then demands a fee to unencrypt it alongside a countdown clock. Dell Secureworks said that the US and UK had been worst affected. It added that the cyber-criminals responsible were now targeting home internet users after initially focusing on professionals. The firm has provided a list of net domains that it suspects have been used to spread the code, but warned that more are being generated every day. Ransomware has existed since at least 1989,

Tehran, Iran - Some 100 Iranian lawmakers introduced a bill in parliament that would force the government to increase uranium enrichment to 60 percent if new sanctions are imposed on the Islamic Republic, state television reported Wednesday. (Snip) The bill is likely a response to a legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate last week that would authorize new economic sanctions on Iran if it breaches the interim nuclear deal reached in Geneva last month or fails to strike a final agreement. Under the deal, Iran agreed to limit its uranium enrichment to 5 percent and neutralize its stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium in return for the easing

Baghdad - The shadowy leader of a powerful al-Qaida group fighting in Syria sought to kidnap United Nations workers and scrawled out plans for his aides to take over in the event of his death, according to excerpts of letters obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. Iraqi intelligence officials offered the AP the letters, as well as the first known photograph of the Nusra Front leader, Abu Mohammed al-Golani, the head of one of the most powerful bands of radicals fighting the Syrian government in the country´s civil war. The officials said they obtained the information about al-Golani after they captured members of another al-Qaida

At least 5 dead in Texas from
H1N1 flu; what you need to know

One of the biggest health concerns each winter is flu season. And the Centers for Disease Control says the flu is widespread in four southern states: Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. In some cases, it has turned deadly. At least five people have died from flu in Texas -- all from swine flu. Health authorities say this year´s flu vaccine can prevent swine flu and several other flu strains, if people get vaccinated. Last year, according to the CDC, only 45 percent of Americans got the flu shot. Dr. Christopher Perkins, medical director for Dallas County Health and Human Services, said, “When things are quiet, people tend to let their

A Preview of Congress´ Debt Ceiling Fight?

Another fight coming on the debt ceiling? Could be. The deadline is February 7. Republicans have suggested they don´t want to simply raise the limit, but Democrats contend they aren´t about to attach strings. The debate on NBC´s "Meet the Press" Sunday was one that will probably be echoed often when Congress returns next month. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., looked at the two year budget deal Congress enacted before leaving last week and was not satisfied. "We´re in trouble on deficits and debts is not because we didn´t agree but because we did. We agreed to spend $740 billion we didn't have last year," he said.

A closeted gay student living in West Monroe, Louisiana has written a powerful essay, criticizing the town´s most famous residents - Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Robertson made headlines after issuing homophobic comments in a GQ article, at one point comparing gay sex to bestiality, which got him put on suspension by the A&E network. But the network announced yesterday that they would be reinstating Robertson to the show, who so far has remained unapologetic about the comments.

The Pasadena Star news reports that a San Diego woman has called for the Rose Parade to be boycotted because it will feature a gay wedding atop a float. The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), is titled, “Love is the Best Protection.” The parade will be watched by an estimated 68 million people around the world. San Diegan Karen Grube, who said her protest is not out of her religious convictions, and says she is opposed to having any wedding featured in the parade, has requested that corporate sponsors drop their funding of the parade if the

In a just world, all the people who have piled on to the federal government for blowing the launch of healthcare.gov would take a look at the UPS Christmas Day screwup and swallow hard. But it´s not a just world, so the lesson of how the nation´s leading parcel delivery service got blindsided by an excess of Internet traffic surely will be ignored. Alec MacGillis of The New Republic reminds us of all the finger-wagging by private sector triumphalists to the effect that, unlike the government´s health insurance enrollment system, commercial websites and services wouldn´t have been brought down by a

Two days after President Barack Obama signed a budget compromise that slashed pension benefits for military veterans, retired Marine Jessie Jane Duff blasted Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his "outrageous attitude" toward the sacrifices those in the armed forces have made. Appearing on Fox & Friends on Saturday, Jessie Jane Duff, who is at the E7 level, said Ryan, who brokered the deal with Sen. Patty Murray (D-WI), does not realize that many active duty military personnel go back to civilian life "broke" and "without a job" and have difficulty getting on equal footing with their "civilian counterparts."

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

A new Gallup poll finds President Obama’s approval rating at 39 percent and his disapproval rating at 54 percent. But it’s not just that the public is increasingly displeased with the job Mr. Obama is doing; they are growing weary of the whole packaged deal. They are frustrated with the president, his style, his attitude, his approach to the job. The Boston Herald reports: President Obama’s tanking approval rating in newly released polls shows Americans are tired of his whining, according to some experts, who also see a fighting chance for Republicans to rack up coast-to-coast victories in the 2014 midterm congressional

After A&E reinstated Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on Friday, the Human Rights Campaign, which promotes gay rights, said the network gave them assurances that the Robertson family would be open to having a dialogue with blacks and the LGBT community. The group revealed they asked A&E for such meetings after it suspended Robertson for making what were deemed to be anti-gay comments in a GQ magazine interview. Fred Sainz, a Human Rights Campaign representative, told CNN that the group wanted to "thank A&E for their attentiveness and collaboration over the course of the last few weeks"

The night of Sept. 1, 2009, Echo Platoon of Navy SEAL Team 10 headed out into the Fallujah night. Their goal: concluding a five-year search for the al Qaeda killer who had been responsible for the shocking 2004 murders of four American military contractors — one of them an ex-SEAL — whose bodies were then burned, dragged through the streets and hanged from a bridge. This night the SEALs departed with these words from their commanding officer: “Gents, stay sharp, and expect a firefight.” In the event, no shots were fired, but the SEALs faced another kind of ambush: a humiliating,
