Front Page: HRC Fire, London Trial, Iraq, Arrest in Mexico

  • A fire has destroyed the Terre Haute, Indiana campaign office of Sen. Hillary Clinton. The flames broke out just after midnight. There were no injuries, and the incident is under investigation.
  • The trial began yesterday for three British Muslims accused of helping the suicide bombers in the attacks on London’s transportation system in July 2005. It's the first case against people accused of helping plan those attacks. The men on trial were arrested in March 2007 and are accused with carrying out a preparatory mission seven months before the July attacks on three subways and a bus. The men have all denied the charges.
  • A relative and follower of radical Shia cleric Muqtada al Sadr has been killed in the Iraqi city of Najaf. Police have imposed an indefinite curfew in the city following the shooting. The Sadr movement has been recently involved in violent clashes with government forces. Also in Iraq, today saw US air strikes on suspected Shiite militiamen planning to launch attacks on security forces, killing at least 12 people in Baghdad and Basra, according to US and British officials. A British spokesman said, "the air strike was launched after positively identifying a mortar team that was engaging the Iraqi troops on the ground."
  • According to the FBI, US Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean, was captured last night in Mexico, three months after fleeing North Carolina. Laurean is the main suspect in the killing of a 20-year-old pregnant Marine, Maria Lauterbach.

Unfortunately, we can't just carpet bomb the area, because there are innocent civilians involved. The outcry would be larger if we tried bombing, as opposed to oing house to house, cleaning the area of would-be terrorists.

Someone in HRC's campaign office probably emptied an ashtray into a wastepaper basket. Britain is sending a message and I hope someone in the Muslim community (like imans and mullahs) is listening. Aiding and abetting a crime is a crime. Go British Legal System of Laws! Iraqi Tribal Leaders need to take a lesson. The USofA will hunt them down. WHY can't we just pull our soldiers out and drop a really really BIG BOMB if the tribes don't lay down their arms and quit acting like spoiled brats? US Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean is a disgrace to the USofA and to the Marine Corps. I hope they put him under the prison. The USofA culture has changed drastically in the past fifty years. Instead of accepting personal responsibility, we go kill the person we think is the cause of our personal problems. IF a person wants to run away from his problems, he's pointing the pistol in the wrong direction. I do NOT support suicide. What I support is personal responsibility for previous actions which got the person in trouble. If you're in trouble, look in the mirror and you'll see who got you there.
