    If you believed that the Muslim Brotherhood would sit back and watch this opportunity pass them by you were horribly naive. The disciplined and organized Islamist groups in Egypt are already stealing the revolution from the youth groups. An Egyptian protester shouts slogans at Tahrir Square in Cairo April 1, 2011. Thousands of demonstrators gathered in Tahrir Square calling for the demands of the revolution that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak from power to be met. (REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El-Ghany) Today thousands of protesters rallied in Tahrir Square in Cairo. But it may be too late. CNN reported: Thousands of demonstrators...

    NEW YORK (AFP) – The sweeping reform of the US health-care system could exact a high price on some businesses and deprive two million Americans of health insurance, industry and union leaders say.

Congress, controlled by Obama's Democratic Party, passed the legislation without a single vote from Republicans, ..

    US-Iranian relations are once again headline news after dropping off the radar for several months in the wake of the US National Intelligence Estimate in December 2007. In recent days, media and public attention has focused on the growing US diplomatic overtures to Tehran, as well as the reports about a possible military attack on Iran that continue to circulate. With all of the focus on the diplomatic and military fronts, there has been little attention paid lately to the middle ground between the two: the US financial campaign against Iran. Financial pressure may be the most important tool the...

    FLORENCE, Italy - Florence, Renaissance city of art and history, is trying to clean up its streets by cracking down on squeegee men, saying they were causing "great danger" to drivers and pedestrians alike. Mayor Leonardo Domenici issued a decree last week to force the squeegee men — people who wash drivers' windshields and demand payment — off the streets, imposing fines and detention of up to three months. The decree, which is valid through Oct. 30 but can be renewed, alleged the squeegee men were hindering traffic, inconveniencing pedestrians and abusing drivers, particularly women. While the measure was applauded...

Banks around the world are limiting their dealings with North Korea, and the nation's leadership is complaining with a vigor unusual even for that government. "It really struck a nerve," a senior administration official said with a smile. It also has given new energy to those in...

    Why is it that Southern California residents continually get ripped off when it comes to the distribution of federal funds, but their congressmen the people charged with distributing those funds continually get re-elected? It's all about money. Southland lawmakers have some of the biggest campaign war chests in the country, thanks to countless special interests all too happy to purchase their favor. Of seven Golden State lawmakers going into the campaign season with more than $1 million as of June 30, six are from Los Angeles, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties. Rep. David Dreier, R-Glendora, has the third-largest congressional...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - U.S. and Iraqi troops launched a major offensive against insurgents in Baghdad's western Abu Ghraib district late Sunday, and aides to a radical anti-American Shiite cleric worked to defuse tensions caused by a recent spate of sectarian killings. Amid the violence, Iraq's government demanded that Syria do more to stop foreign fighters from crossing the porous border and a senior Iraqi Trade Ministry official was killed in an ongoing terror campaign that has killed more than 550 people in less than one month. Iraqi authorities also announced that Ghazi Hammud al-Obeidi, 65, one of the most-wanted...

    The Big Squeeze Friday May 23, 2:03 am ET Lisa Stansky, The National Law Journal Law.com Car thieves, prostitutes, trespassers and shoplifters might have a field day in Oregon. The state has run out of money to process minor criminal cases. On top of that, the crunch has forced every courthouse to close on Fridays from March through June. Oregon's budget problems are not unique. State judicial systems across the country, like other government entities, have coped with budget cuts since the boom of the 1990s fizzled and left most states with serious fiscal anemia. Now it's worse. "The current...
