    "In Al-Bukamal, we destroyed 116 tanker trucks, which we believe will reduce ISIL's ability to transport its stolen oil products," Warren said. "This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by -- we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude." The leaflets, which fluttered to the ground about 45 minutes before the strikes, simply said: "Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away...
  • 'Complete lie': Pro-Russian official denies role in mysterious leaflets to Ukrainian Jews

    04/18/2014 6:01:29 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 25 replies ^ | 4/1/2014
    A pro-Russian official initially thought to be behind fliers telling Ukrainian Jews to register vehemently denied any involvement on Friday, telling Fox News the leaflets were a "complete lie." The leaflets were first reported in Israel's Ynet News. The news site said the notices were circulated in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, demanding that Jews register -- as well as provide a list of property they own -- or else face deportation and revocation of citizenship. Pro-Russian activists have asserted partial control over some government buildings in that city. Ynet reported that the notices, sent as the Passover holiday...

Amarah is also a forward command and control hub for Iranian operations in southern Iraq. Iraqi security forces established checkpoints along the entrances to the province, and have closed down the border crossing...

Corzine is holding the public events in each of the state's 21 counties to try to sell his financial proposal. Middle Township police declined to comment on the incident. But Lonegan, a Republican who ran in his party's...

    Hezbollah today distributed leaflets congratulating Lebanon on its “big victory” and thanking citizens for their patience during the 34-day war with Israel. Supporters of the guerrilla group were seen passing out leaflets to cars heading south on the Zahrani highway, which connects the hard-hit southern cities of Nabatiyeh, Tyre and Sidon. “Congratulations to you on the big victory, with the support of God, the mujahedeen (holy warriors) and your patience,” it read. The flyers also warned people not to touch any suspicious objects, which could be unexploded ordnance. Israeli warplanes had blanketed leaflets over large areas of Lebanon during the...

    Israeli planes dropped thousands of leaflets denouncing Hezbollah guerrillas over the Lebanese capital of Beirut and its suburbs this morning, two days after some of the worst border clashes in southern Lebanon in several years. Lebanese security officials said the roar of jets was heard over the city before dawn after which thousands of leaflets were dropped. “To the Lebanese citizens, who protects Lebanon?” read the small paper leaflet written in Arabic. “Who is lying to you? Who is sending your children to a battle they are not ready for? Who wishes the return of the destruction? Who is the...

    "Banishment" from a Public Library? August 20, 2005 I recently received a letter from a local Public Library that was not unexpected. Over the years I have sought to educate the public with regard to the murder of the preborn. Public libraries are a great place to disperse information. In most Public Libraries you can find books with graphic nudity, perversion, introductions to the sodomite lifestyle and the like. The American Library Association will let most anything pass as "good literature" and they raise their voice against "censorship" if ever a "prudish" individual questions a selection in the collection of...

  • Lee County girl can't hand out anti-abortion info at school

    FORT MYERS, Fla. - A federal judge refused to allow a 15-year-old girl to distribute anti-abortion pamphlets at school, saying the divisive issue could turn the hallways into a "battlefield." Cypress Lake Middle School eighth-grader Michelle Heinkel wanted to hand out the literature to classmates on a "day of remembrance" for abortion victims - despite being barred last year because the Lee County school district's blanket policy bans student distribution of pamphlets. In a 21-page order, U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington on Friday ruled that if the school board allowed Heinkel to disseminate the pamphlets, then they would...

    SASKATOON, SK, May 18, 2005 ( – A Saskatchewan man has been charged and ordered to pay $17,500 in damages to several homosexuals as a result of a flyer he distributed in Regina, containing warnings against the dangers of a homosexual lifestyle that a human rights tribunal ruled was “hate speech.” On May 2, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal ordered William Whatcott to pay homosexual Guy Taylor $2,500 and $5,000 each to homosexuals Brenden Wallace, James Komar and Kathy Hamre for damages. The four had sued Whatcott for a flyer he had distributed in mailboxes between September 2001 and April...

    BAGHDAD - A statement signed by the group of Al-Qaeda frontman in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was distributed outside a Sunni mosque in Baghdad after Friday prayers. The leaflet was handed out in broad daylight by unmasked men outside the Abu Hanifa mosque, the most influential Sunni mosque in Baghdad, an AFP correspondent reported. The statement, whose authenticity could not be verified, offered Zarqawi's version of the ongoing battle between his militants and US troops in the western region of Al-Qaim, near the Syrian border.

    What Alvarez and scores of residents of her impoverished Havana neighborhood found at their doorstep was a pocket-size reprint of Bush's Jan. 20 inaugural address in which he vowed to free the world of tyranny. The speech and a second pamphlet containing the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights arrived anonymously in the dead of night and are part of an escalating U.S. government program to spur political change in this one-party state. For decades, the U.S. government's attempt to penetrate Cuba with information has had limited success. Cuban authorities routinely jam Radio and TV Marti, the anti-Castro broadcasts produced...

    So the United Nations is all hot and bothered over leaflets. That's right — leaflets. Not the insurgents' leaflets — the ones that talk of murdering anyone who dare goes out and votes. Not a word about them. No, they are upset at "our" leaflets. The ones that simply remind Iraqis they have the chance to vote. They've plenty of words about them. The U.N. claims that we're taking sides. So, let me get this straight: Celebrating democracy is bad. Promising to butcher those who practice it is good? Only a body of soulless bodies like the U.N. could ignore...
