    The U.S. military on Tuesday labeled as an "incursion" the Russian fighter jet that was shot down by Turkish aircraft over the Syria-Turkey border. Army Col. Steve Warren, the top military spokesman in Baghdad, confirmed the Turk's version of events in saying they repeatedly warned the two Russian SU-24 pilots to back off. Col. Warren used the word "incursion" to describe the Russian flight, but also said the command was studying radars and other data, such as radio chatter, to make a definite conclusion. The incident happened at the border," Col. Warren said. "These things are not as clean as...

    Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast on Wednesday and were met by U.S. interceptor jets, defense officials told the Free Beacon. It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks. An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that a Russian military spokesman said included simulated attacks on enemy air defenses and strategic facilities.

    The platoon of Chinese soldiers slipped across the boundary into India in the middle of the night, according to Indian officials. They were ferried across the bitterly cold moonscape in Chinese army vehicles, then got out to traverse a dry creek bed with a helicopter hovering overhead for protection. They finally reached their destination and pitched a tent in the barren Depsang Valley in the Ladakh region, a symbolic claim of sovereignty deep inside Indian-held territory. So stealthy was the operation that India did not discover the incursion until a day later, Indian officials said. China denies any incursion, but...

    We all know President Obama is rewriting our immigration law on his own. He has issued new orders that grant certain illegal immigrants a waiver to deportation. Details of this new policy was released on Friday and for the paltry sum of $465, illegal immigrants that were brought to the United States as children can apply for a waiver and a work permit. In other words, trading illegal status for legal status. Sounds like a good deal, at least for them. In regards to these new immigration rules, ie. selective enforcement of current immigration law, we are learning about a...
