Front Page: Two Held in Obama Plot, Syria Raid Kills "Major Target," Arctic Ice Thickness Drops

  • Two Held in Obama Plot:
    Two men, being described as Neo-Nazis and aged 18 and 20, are being held for plotting to kill Barack Obama. Obama said he's not worried about the news and that it's "not who America is." The plan was to shoot 88 African-Americans and decapitate 14, symbolic numbers to white supremacists. The plot appears to have been amateurish and unsophisticated.
  • Syria Raid Kills "Major Target": A controversial raid into Syria has killed a key individual, Abu Ghadiyah, who was involved in smuggling foreign fighters into Iraq. Officials called the raid a "success." Baghdad has condemned the move saying that it doesn't want to be used as a launch point for attacks on others.

  • Arctic Ice Thickness Drops:
    The thickness of the Arctic Ice dropped last year as much as 1.5 feet in some areas. The ice had been consistent for five years before hitting the 2007 minimum. The losses in ice could suggest the region has hit a tipping point — five years ago they projected the sea ice would disappear by 2080. The new data shows the ice will be gone by 2030 or 2040.

Ugh...looking at the face of such hate, gross. I guess I am slightly relieved the US has some sort of justification for the bombing in Syria. Though overall, I'm mostly just tired of this mess. I understand the concerns in Baghdad...but wasn't the justification to protect Iraq as well? Hey, Sarah Palin, looks like God's hugging us even tighter!

God, how vile. As for the attacks on Syria launched from Iraq, I think Baghdad is perfectly justified in their displeasure at the move. It makes the whole "liberation" of Iraq look like nothing more than an attempt to turn the region into an American outpost from which we can easily continue carrying out our aggressions on other nations.

Looks like we are entering into the period of the global climate change change cycle where the temperature heats up the poles. Has Sarah Palin discussed when the earth will cool down again according to these cycles?

My dad and I watched the foiled Obama assassination thing last night...though these guys were really young and amateurish about it, it just makes me sad that they even had the vitriolic hatred to think of this. Furthermore, I strongly believe that there are older, more organized groups (not even neo-Nazis) out there that are more dilligently planning the same this scares me. As punishment, I think the police should leave the kids at the high school they were gonna attack and let the students deal with them...I know I'd wanna kick their asses!

I'm glad they were caught. Keep up the good work CIA and FBI (or whatever agency is responsible for the safety of the politicians).

I think the numbers 88 and 14 deserve some sort of apology for being symbolic to white supremacists. What did they ever do to deserve such lame distinction? And the guy up there looks like he can barely remember his phone number, let alone mastermind an assasination plot. :oy: Hateful moron.

Those kids are too idiotic to have gotten away with such a big scheme, and thank God. People are so scary.
