    President Trump said Thursday his warning that the U.S. would meet North Korea with "fire and fury" may not have been tough enough. "They've been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it's about time someone stuck for the people of this country and for the people of other countries," he said in Bedminster, N.J., in response to criticisms of his comments this week, according to a pool report. "If anything, maybe that statement wasn't tough enough." The president also urged the rogue regime to "get their act together," and said the U.S. military...

    A civilian working aboard a nuclear submarine drydocked at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine admits to starting two fires causing $400 million in damage. Maybe he should have just called in sick? A man who set two fires to a nuclear-powered submarine, causing $400 million in damage, admitted he did it because he wanted to leave work early. Casey James Fury, 24, was working aboard the USS Miami in Kittery, Maine as a civilian painter and sandblaster when he purposefully set two fires this summer, according to a criminal complaint filed in the United States District Court in Maine....

    The Navy has decided that it will not repair the nuclear-powered submarine USS Miami after concluding that the cost of repairing damage from a fire set by a civilian worker is more than it can afford due to mandated budget cuts.

    First things first: the reviews and social media claims arguing that director Angelina Jolie’s “Unbroken” somehow short shrifts the Christian faith or the Christianity of its subject are not just untrue, they are preposterous. This cinematic adaptation of the true story of Olympian and WWII Veteran Louis Zamperini has its flaws, but respect and reverence for the Zamperini’s Christian faith is not one of them. Quite the opposite. [...] “Unbroken” is the second devoutly Christian WWII film to enjoy a wide studio release in 2014. The first was “Fury,” an even better movie  starring Brad Pitt — Jolie’s husband.  “Fury” and...

    Fury: The Mother of all Tank Movies starring Brad Pitt, no I'm not a fan of his, but did enjoyed the movie. The authenticity of the tanks was the real thing, Sherman's and the German Tiger I. Pitt's character is a bit reminiscent of the role he played as a soldier in Inglorious Basterds, which also took place during WWII. He takes his five-man crew behind enemy lines, where they are outnumbered and outgunned. FURY is the first war film to feature a real life German Tiger I tank which actually came out of a museum collection. Tigers were the...

    Has anyone else seen Fury? I just got back and it wasn't a bad movie at all. The character building scenes are a bit clumsy at times but the combat bits were top notch. It wasn't Blackhawk Down or Saving Private Ryan intense but there were tense moments. I recommend it.

    In the first minutes of the writer-director David Ayer’s “Fury,” about American soldiers slogging through Europe in the final days of World War II, Brad Pitt, as the tanker Don Collier, slides his knife behind the eye of a German lieutenant.“Piercing his brainpan with a CRACK,” is how Mr. Ayer’s screenplay describes the move. (In Dolby Digital sound, it will be a very loud crack.) Mr. Pitt, our hero, then calmly wipes his blade clean on the German’s uniform.The Good War this is not.In what promises to be one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season that...

    Afghanistan will release scores of prisoners considered by the US to be a security threat because there is insufficient evidence against them, President Hamid Karzai's office says. A statement said there was not enough evidence against 72 out of 88 prisoners previously held by the US. Correspondents say that the move will further strain relations with the US. The two countries are at loggerheads over President Karzai's refusal to sign a security deal with Washington. The US is strongly opposed to the releases because it says the prisoners have been involved in the wounding or killing of US and Nato...

    France is sliding into a grave economic crisis and risks a full-blown “hurricane” as investors flee rocketing tax rates, the country’s business federation has warned. Francois Hollande is tightening fiscal policy by 2pc of GDP next year to meet EU deficit targets “The situation is very serious. Some business leaders are in a state of quasi-panic,” said Laurence Parisot, head of employers’ group MEDEF. “The pace of bankruptcies has accelerated over the summer. We are seeing a general loss of confidence by investors. Large foreign investors are shunning France altogether. It’s becoming really dramatic.” MEDEF, France’s equivalent of the CBI,...

    TRENTON — Senate President Stephen Sweeney went to bed furious Thursday night after reviewing the governor’s line-item veto of the state budget. He woke up Friday morning even angrier. "This is all about him being a bully and a punk," he said in an interview Friday. "I wanted to punch him in his head." Sweeney had just risked his political neck to support the governor’s pension and health reform, and his reward was a slap across the face. The governor’s budget was a brusque rejection of every Democratic move, and Sweeney couldn’t even get an audience with the governor to...

    When Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen saw plumes of fire shooting from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig on April 20, he knew oil would eventually start gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, he said in an interview. (snip) On the Gulf Coast in particular, critics say, the federal effort has been uncoordinated and undirected. Top officials were late to grasp the magnitude of the problem and to respond to requests from local officials, and at times overestimated the federal government's ability to stem the gusher, say local officials. (snip) Louisiana officials had said all along that keeping oil away from...

The chairman of the Bradford Council for Mosques (BMC) has called for the cut-outs to be removed immediately.

    Honda Fury bike stirs up a storm Out this spring, it will cost about $13,000 By Matt Degen of The Orange County (Calif.) Register SANTA ANA, Calif. — Honda has just introduced a motorcycle that looks about as far from a Honda as one could imagine. The 2010 Fury was unveiled at the New York International Motorcycle Show, and it’s already creating some serious waves. “The Fury opens the door to the most extreme level of custom looks,” the company said. “But once you’re rolling, the Fury experience is all about that special bond between rider and machine.” The bike...

    Friends, compatriots, fellow-lamenters, We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce on the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate that has a real possibility of becoming fact. Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To...

    SIERRA VISTA — There may not have been a Sierra Vista Holiday Parade on Saturday, but there sure was a show of a different sort. Mother Nature blew in late Friday night and early Saturday morning and left her mark through a variety of damage, from toppled trees to a trampoline on top of a roof to air conditioners and coolers blowing off roofs to awnings being twisted by the wind to scattered holiday yard decorations. The wind ripped a portion of the roof off a home in the 4900 block of South Santa Aurelia. And 35-foot-tall Modesto ash crashed...
