If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?

    North Korea Just Moved Some Of Its Most Advanced Weaponry To The Chinese Border In A Sign Of Rising Tensions Jeremy BenderAugust 20, 2014 In a sign of the continuing decline in relations between North Korea and China, Pyongyang moved a number of tanks and armored vehicles away from South Korea to the Chinese border, according to The Chosun Ilbo, citing an anonymous source. North Korea has reportedly deployed 80 tanks to Ryanggang Province, directly across the border from China. The tanks were reinforced with armored infantry units, multiple rocket launchers, and a sharpshooter brigade. According to Chosun Ilbo, this...

    The Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment has a saying -- "Night Stalkers Don't Quit." It apparently doesn't always let people sleep, either. The airborne unit's Black Hawk helicopters arrived without warning Monday night, rattling for hours over Highland Park and around apartment buildings in downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis, and angering residents and elected officials alike. They'll be back. The copters are taking part in U.S. military exercises that will continue sporadically into Thursday evening -- local law enforcement officials said -- but now with a little more public notice. "It's something that we do 10 to 15 times...

    Deep into a conflict that has sundered decades-old ties between Ukraine and Russia, Ukraine is still selling military gear over the border to its neighbor, Ukrainian defense industry officials say. Kiev’s pleas for an end to trade ties have run into strong resistance from workers at companies like Motor Sich, here in Ukraine’s industrial heartland, where 27,000 employees build engines tailor-made for Russian military helicopters and planes. Most senior executives here grew up as part of the same Soviet military-industrial club as their Russian peers. “We have our own party, the party of Motor Sich,’’ company spokesman Anatoliy Malysh said.

    Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk accused Israel on Tuesday night of having trying to eliminate the head of the group's “military wing”, Mohammed Deif, in one of its airstrikes on Gaza. According to Reuters, Marzouk said Israel had broken the truce that was supposed to expire at midnight in order "to assassinate Mohammed Deif," but that civilians were killed at the site of the attack. AFP reported that Marzouk said the airstrike killed Deif’s wife and child. "The wife of the great leader was martyred with his daughter," in the strike, he wrote on Facebook while saying nothing about the...

I have to go back tomorrow”. Going back to school is always difficult for both teachers and students. It also means more traffic with school buses back on the road; probably the only ones delighted about schools reopening are the parents. Going back to school can be a milestone. Kindergarten, sixth grade, high school and college are all significant marks of progress and change (especially...

    Orange County police authorities, reacting to the fuming riots in Ferguson Missouri, concluded that a militarized law enforcement response is valid in heated situations, but needs to be initiated on a case-by-case basis. The Orange County Register reported that Irvine Police Cmdr. Julia Engen claimed that “Every set of circumstances is different. I don’t think you will see anyone paint themselves into a corner with policy.” Irvine, Anaheim, and Huntington Beach police departments, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, all have armored vehicles which can be used to suppress riots as well as retrieve injured officers during chaotic insurgencies.

    The legality of President’s Obama’s sustained and targeted airstrike campaign in Iraq against ISIS forces is a matter of contention among some constitutional scholars. What they all seem to agree upon, however, is that any targeted military operation, lasting no longer than a few days, does in fact pass constitutional muster (via The Hill): “I think any conflict of a couple days in nature could be justified,” said Louis Fisher, a scholar at the Constitutional Law Project, “but as President Obama said last weekend, this is not going to be for just a couple days or weeks, it could go...

    Robin Williams, the famed comedian and actor, died on Monday at age 63. He had a remarkable career, and was one of the funniest people of all time. But beyond his career of making people laugh — one of my favorites being his role as Vietnam-era radio personality Adrian Cronauer — his response in 2007 to troops in Kuwait who basically turned their back on him is one worth remembering.

    American bluff and bombast toward Moscow has stoked Russian nationalism, convinced Putin we're weak, and fostered a dangerous realignment. PRESIDENT BARACK Obama likes to say that America and the world have progressed beyond the unpleasantness of the nineteenth century and, for that matter, much of the rest of human history. He could not be more wrong. And as a result, he is well on the way to repeating some of history’s most dangerous mistakes. Few would think to compare Obama to Russia’s last czar, Nicholas II.

    This is a subject that is censored by most news companies. Obama is greatly distrusted by our military forces. There are no current polls, but back in the 2012 election, a large Military Times poll was conducted, and Obama had the support of only 26% of the military, which is shocking. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the Medal of Honor, says President Obama’s agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point that members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win. “There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent...

    A photo meant to highlight the bravery and adaptability of China's military members has apparently created a public outrage instead. The image of Chinese soldiers using dirty water to cook noodles was meant to showcase a display of the "soldiers' bravery" by the state-run media sources Chinese National Radio and the Global Times Newspaper, according to the BBC. "These men stood tall in the face of adversity with or without clean water," state-run media reported. The picture of Chinese soldiers responding to an earthquake in China's Yunnan province, was met with derision by users of the Chinese social media site...

    He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts. All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him. For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from...

    FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii. — As Congress remains gridlocked on more than 200 bills related to climate change, U.S. Pacific Command is forging strategies with partner nations in the region to mitigate the security effects of global warming. “You can’t deny the fact that there are military consequences going on as a result of storms,” said Brig. Gen. Mark McLeod, who headed PACOM’s Logistics, Engineering and Security Cooperation directorate for two years until transferring to the Pentagon this summer. “Seventy percent of the bad storms that happen in the world are in the Pacific,” he said. “Call it climate change, call...
