    HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – A Hampton police officer shot an aggressive dog Friday while responding to a call about a stolen moped. According to the Hampton Police Division, the officer responded to the 1200 block of Pansy Street around 9 p.m. The person who called about the moped was walking with his unleashed dog toward the officer. Police said that’s when the dog aggressively charged at the officer, who feared for his safety and shot the dog once in the upper body. The medium-sized mixed breed dog was taken to a local animal hospital for treatment. The officer was not...

    WASHINGTON – It was a two-day trip to the Midwest to talk about jobs and clean energy. President Barack Obama didn't mention the drama unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico, where oil was gushing from a broken well pipe a mile beneath the sea. The situation hadn't become a priority. Soon it would. On the return to Washington aboard Air Force One, Obama learned the spill had become more worrisome. A third break was discovered at the destroyed well pipe on the ocean floor 40 miles from Louisiana's precious coastal marshes. Federal scientists believed at least 5,000 barrels of oil...

    Senior Hizbullah official Hassan Fadlallah said Wednesday that his militia's weapons were of the “honorable” type and could not be compared with those of the United States and Israel. “Our choice was and still is to secure all the arms of resistance that we can,” Fadlallah told the Lebanese daily As-Safir. “There is a great difference between weapons that only serve invasions, occupations and aggressions, such as those of the United States and its ally Israel … and weapons of an honorable resistance that liberates, protects, and defends.”

    * 251 complaints of unacceptable behaviour * Rise in "irresponsible alcohol consumption" * Female trainees "sexually aggressive" NAVAL commanders have been warned of a rising tide of alcohol-fuelled sex abuse and "sexually aggressive females" at training bases. As the Navy reels from the HMAS Success allegations, the Herald Sun can reveal that 251 complaints of unacceptable behaviour were made to fleet commanders in the last financial year. They included 36 sexual offence allegations, 21 claims of sexual harassment, and 23 complaints of "inappropriate workplace relationships", according to documents obtained under Freedom of Information laws.

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama implored Senate Democrats on Wednesday to stay aggressive in pushing their agenda despite the loss of one vital seat, saying: "We still have to lead." Speaking to his party's senators at their strategy conference, Obama reminded Democrats they still hold a 59-41 majority, one shy of the 60 needed to overcome Republican filibuster delay tactics. Democrats lost a "super majority" when Republican Scott Brown won in a special election upset in Massachusetts. Obama said that for Democrats searching for a lesson from that election, "The answer is not to do nothing." "The American people are...

    They may not look as threatening as some of the larger canine, but research revealed that the dachshund is the most aggressive breed of dog. Citing a study published by Applied Animal Behavior Science, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported that one in five dachshunds has bitten or tried to bite strangers, and one in 12 has shown aggression toward its owners. The study involved researchers from the University of Pennsylvania. About 6,000 dog owners were questioned about their dogs' behavior. Thirty-three breeds were ranked on their aggression. Ranking below the dachshund was an even smaller dog, the Chihuahua....

    Today's religious map of the Middle East traces to the unification of the Arabian tribes under the banner of Islam in the 7th century, and their subsequent conquest of much of the known world. Muhammad's genius was in finding a way to unite the myriad of fissiparous, feuding Bedouin tribes of northern Arabia into a cohesive polity. Just as he had provided a constitution of rules under which the people of Medina could live together, so he provided a constitution for all Arabs, but this one had the imprimatur not just of Muhammad, but of God. Submission -- Islam --...

    Head, a six-month-old pit bull with tattered ears and a passive demeanor, learned to sit on Saturday, a small but notable achievement for a dog once bred to fight. On a sidewalk in Humboldt Park, Head was part of a small group of neighborhood pit bulls participating in a dog obedience class taught by Tony Gordon, whose mission is more than just turning around a few hostile canines. Gordon, a disciple of Pavlov, said he also hopes to educate pit bull owners and transform public perception about a breed that has been maligned by the media in high-profile attacks on...

    FORT HUACHUCA — The sound of shotguns being fired at Smith Middle School on Tuesday brought post military police officers to the scene. But instead of setting up a perimeter around the campus and then slowly beginning the process of clearing rooms, the soldiers used a new procedure of running to the sound to neutralize the active shooter. Law enforcement was putting out warnings to anyone intending to engage in criminal active shooting: If they kill, wound or otherwise threaten the public, they will be neutralized, and that could be lethal. Mark Dannels, deputy commander with the Cochise County Sheriff’s...

    City officials are relenting on a plan to trap and kill aggressive squirrels that have been attacking humans in a popular park. The city does not have any immediate plans to arm the steel traps placed in the trees at Cuesta Park two weeks ago, David Muela, the city's community services director, said Friday. The city previously said it had no choice but to kill the squirrels after three people - including a 4-year-old boy - were bitten inside the park. The animals were jumping inside baby strollers, opening food bags and even scratching people giving them handouts including a...

Ahmadinejad said the Iranian nation are men of dialogue, wisdom and law. He warned certain groups against abusing international organizations and global communities to build up pressure on Iran. "They should know that the nation will not compromise its nuclear rights," he made it clear. According to IRNA, he ruled out major powers' claims that they were devoid of any...

    SACRAMENTO, California (Reuters) - California is forging ahead with the most aggressive U.S. program to reduce global warming -- a plan that pits Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger against fellow Republican George W. Bush. Both the governor and his state's Democratic-led legislature want to make California -- the world's eighth largest economy -- a model to follow with caps in greenhouse gas emissions that the U.S. president rejects. State politicians still are hammering out differences over the proposed Global Warming Solutions Act. If passed, it is likely to play a role in November's vote for governor and in national politics for years...

Aggressors, as they’re known, scrimmage against their fellow Airmen, much like football teams preparing for a game. Traditionally, aggressors have focused on aircrews, but in the near future, the Air Force is expanding instruction to encompass ground, space and cyberspace training, as well as streamlining the way air combat is taught. “Aggressors are about training, pure and simple,” said Maj. Gen. Norman Seip, assistant deputy chief of staff for air, space and information operations. “They train to...

"The freedom agenda is a powerful part of our country's desire to lay the foundation for peace, and it's making a difference," Bush said at a meeting with the National Governors Association. The U.S. must stay on the offensive against terrorists and keep them on the run, Bush said, and to that end he thanked the governors for their support of the National Guard....

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    WASHINGTON - Iran is closing in on production of nuclear weapons and even U.N. sanctions may not deter the aggressive government in Tehran, a top State Department official said Friday. Describing the Iranian government as "very aggressive, very determined to develop nuclear weapons," Robert Joseph, undersecretary for arms control and international security, dismissed Iran's contention that it seeks only civilian nuclear power. "We know this is not the case," Joseph said at the University of Virginia's Miller Center in Charlottesville. Iran has methodically taken all but one last step to turn out nuclear weapons, he said. "Once they begin to...

    MEMRI hosted an event on Capitol Hill last June titled "Must-See Saudi TV." The event was sponsored by Senators Santorum, Schumer, and Collins and analyzed television programs broadcast by stations funded and controlled by the Saudi Arabian government, such as TV1, TV2, and satellite channels such as Al-Majd and Iqra TV. Shows featured leading Saudi religious figures, professors, members of the royal family, government leaders, and intellectuals. Certain messages and themes surfaced again and again: calls for the annihilation of Christian and Jews; anti-American and anti-Semitic declarations; rallying cries for jihad and terrorism, and incitement against American troops in Iraq.

    When you think of a government information office, do you think of much more than dusty information pamphlets and glossy tourist brochures full of pleasant platitudes, putting the best face forward on a particular nation? Such is perfectly natural for friendly, and even some not-so-friendly nations, because that's what government information offices normally do. But Venezuela's Marxist government has an entirely different idea. The innocuously named Venezuela Information Office in Washington, D.C. is an aggressive Cuba-style PsyOps and disinformation operation sponsored by the Venezuelan government. Its operatives not only seek to get the Venezuelan government's castroite message out to the...

    President Bush's second-term plans to reshape Social Security, immigration laws and other domestic programs are facing a stiff challenge from a group that was reliably accommodating in the president's first four years: congressional Republicans. After essentially rubber-stamping much of Bush's first-term agenda, many House and Senate Republicans plan to assert themselves more forcefully to put their mark on domestic policy in the new year, according to several lawmakers. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) has privately criticized White House handling of the recent intelligence bill and Bush's plan to postpone tax reform until 2006 or later. Rep. Thomas M.
