No need for panic, but
terrorism remains a threat

Telegraph [UK], by Editorial

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/6/2014 2:56:46 PM

Sometimes it is hard to reconcile freedom and security: one can come at the expense of the other. As millions of British families head abroad for the holidays, they are likely to face long queues at airports thanks to the United States’ call for heightened security measures. Terrorists are thought to be targeting transatlantic flights. Sir Malcolm Rifkind, the head of the intelligence and security committee, has received briefings on the nature of the threat posed and writes that these measures are not an overreaction but unavoidable. Tomorrow marks the ninth anniversary of the 7/7 bombings that took 52 innocent

The British public has been "dealing": with terrorism longer than you have, #1. Kindly be a little more polite to those with British family members and, like me, once used to be a British citizen.

I see you know the term "Limey." Do you know that came about because British sailors were smart enough to consume lemons and limes on their voyages so they wouldn´t get scurvy, unlike the hordes threatening our lives and culture right this minute. May I suggest you aim your hostility in a more productive direction?

Hagel reveals ´over 100 US citizens´ are

a huge increase from previous estimates
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that the problem of ´foreign fighters´ aiding the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) includes far more Americans than has been previously reported--at least 100 and counting. ´We have acknowledged publicly we are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with ISIL forces,´ he said during a televised interview. ´There may be more. We don´t know.´ Earlier estimates had only about a dozen so-called ´foreign fighters´ from the United States scattered across the Middle East in ISIS army units.

U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford said Wednesday that accusations and requests made by his ex-wife Jenny in their contentious divorce, including that he undergo a mental evaluation, are "preposterous, crazy and wrong." [Snip] "The different accusations and requests made are, by their very nature preposterous, crazy, and wrong," Mark Sanford said in a statement released to The Associated Press. "Since the time of the divorce I have tried to do everything in my power to be both a good dad and a former husband. It seems that nothing I can do at this point is enough, appropriate or adequate," he said.

Republican Rep. Peter King said Sunday that President Barack Obama should take the threat of expatriates turned jihadists returning home to commit acts of terrorism as seriously as British Prime Minister David Cameron. King, a member of the House of Representatives´ Intelligence committee and the former chair of it´s Homeland Security committee, said that ´the United States is always the main target of these terrorist organizations,´ so he is ´very concerned´ about an attack from Islamic radicals. ´And I would say, I wish our president was showing the same leadership that David Cameron showed,´ he added. ´What is President Obama

With just 30in manoeuvring room either side, the imposing HMS Duncan has just about arrived in Cardiff ahead of the much-anticipated Nato summit. The sixth-in-class of the Royal Navy´s state-of-the-art Type 45 destroyers made it through a very tight gap in the Welsh capital yesterday. HMS Duncan, a £1billion ship, will be holding a working dinner for heads of government, foreign ministers and defence ministers tomorrow. Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said today that Nato must ‘toughen up’ to deal with the modern-day threats it faces.

Heartening news from this morning´s Cobra meeting on the deteriorating hostage crisis in Iraq, with the Government reported to be giving serious consideration to actually doing something to prevent further atrocities being committed against Western hostages. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond emerged from the meeting to declare that the Government is to "look at every possible option" to try to retrieve the British hostage whose life has been threatened by Islamist terrorists, who have warned that he is next on their "kill list" following the brutal murder of a second American hostage, Steven Sotloff.

President Barack Obama was warned by intelligence officials about the threat presented by the Islamic State at least a year before it began its murderous rampage across Iraq, a news report revealed on Tuesday. A Pentagon official familiar with the President´s Daily Brief told Fox News that anyone at the White House who read the report ´could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad.´ The Pentagon official´s claims are consistent with those of other sources in the intelligence community and regional experts who have said it´s improbable that the president was caught off guard by the

American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State terrorist group, took great risks to keep his Jewish faith in captivity, a former fellow-captive of the murdered journalist told Yediot Aharonoth. However, it turns out that Sotloff was in fact Israeli. A media gag order on the issue was released on Wednesday, allowing publication of the fact that Sotloff made aliyah (immigration) to Israel in 2005 by himself, and studied at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. Sotloff reportedly made sure to fast in secret during Yom Kippur and even prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as is customary in Jewish

From Vladimir Putin as International Man of the Year to Kim Jong-Un as Humanitarian of the Year, a tongue-in-cheek list of GQ Awards’ winners has been unveiled. The mocked-up winners’ list, which was posted on Twitter today, appears to have been prompted by Tony Blair’s surprise Philanthropist of the Year award. The former Prime Minister picked up the gong for his efforts in ‘establishing three charities’ at the central London awards ceremony--much to the surprise of the star-studded audience which was said to be ‘muted’ as his name was read out.

Our country grieves with them". He added: "We will not be intimidated. This horrific act only unites us."

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. The U.S. continues to target Islamic State

Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, make clear it is our "duty" to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries "with a sense of stewardship of earth," adding, "That responsibility comes from God."

Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists.
