    The border is nearly 2,000 miles long and covers four U.S. and six Mexican states. It's the most frequently crossed international border in the world, with some 350 million people crossing legally every year, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico says. 1836 -- Texas gains independence from Mexico; Rio Grande becomes its southern border. 1848 -- At the end of the Mexican-American War, officials sign the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, in which Mexico gives up nearly half its territory, including modern-day California, most of Arizona and New Mexico and parts of Colorado, Nevada and Utah. 1853 -- Under the Gadsden Purchase, the...

I'd like to run down a list, one by one, of terrorist attacks around the world to find whether they feel that they were also deserved, or whether they are biased against the US.

    Iraq's vice president has asked President Bush for a timeline for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Iraq, the Iraqi president's office said. Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, a Sunni, made the request during his meeting with Bush on Tuesday, when the U.S. president made a surprise visit to Iraq. "I supported him in this," President Jalal Talabani said in a statement released Wednesday. Al-Hashimi's representatives could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday. Bush made it clear during his visit that the U.S. military presence — now at about 132,000 troops — would continue, though he stressed the fate of...

    Under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who came to power in 1941, Iran was a close ally of the United States. Since the shah was toppled in the 1979 Iranian revolution, the two countries have been bitter enemies. Following is a chronology of their relations: - April 1951: Mohammed Mossadegh is elected prime minister and nationalizes oil interests. In June 1953, the Eisenhower administration approves a British proposal for a joint Anglo-American operation, code-named Operation Ajax, to overthrow Mossadegh. His toppling becomes a long-standing source of resentment among Iranians toward the U.S. - 1970: Iran signs the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. -...

    A report commissioned in mid-1999 by Rep. Curt Weldon (R) looks into possible Chinese front companies in the US seeking technology for the Chinese military. Dr. Eileen Preisser and Michael Maloof are commissioned to make the report. Dr. Preisser, who runs the Information Dominance Center at the US Army's Land Information Warfare Activity (LIWA) and will later become closely tied to Able Danger, uses LIWA's data mining capabilities to search unclassified information. According to Maloof, their results show Chinese front companies in the US posing as US corporations that acquire technology from US defense contractors. When the study is completed...

    The indictment of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, on Friday is the result of a 22-month investigation that had its roots in the buildup to the war in Iraq. Here is a listing of the events that led to the five charges being filed against Libby. Feb. 2002: The CIA sends retired diplomat Joseph Wilson to Africa to investigate possible Iraqi purchases of uranium. Wilson reports back that purchase of yellowcake from Niger by Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussein was "highly unlikely."

October 15, 2001 - The CIA receives a report from a foreign government service that the Iraqi regime had struck a deal with the government of Niger to purchase several tons of partially processed uranium, known as "yellowcake." (This was not the later "source" often referred to as "forged documents".) On October 18, 2001 - The CIA publishes a Senior Executive Intelligence Bulletin that discusses the finding.

    Sorry for the long post, but I just want to add my timeline. Let me briefly explain the purpose of this. I tried to focus only on a couple of narrow issues. In particular, the now widely-accepted “truth” that the Federal response was “slow” and that people at the Convention Center and Superdome were somehow ignored or abandoned. In fact, as the timeline shows, those at the Superdome were actually well-fed (I say this as one who has eaten many MRE’s in his life.) They also began evacuating within two days of the hurricane, despite the added complication of the...

As I visualize it, it would have the first column with the date and subsequent column headings of something like White House, Nagin, Blanco, LA Nat Guard, US Nat Guard, FEMA and so on. I think this would be useful in pointing out to everyone what actions were taken when and by whose authority. Perhaps even quote the LA disaster plan at the head of the chart to point it out to anyone who is not aware of it. Unfortunately, I've...

    The near total evacuation of the major American port city of New Orleans, Louisiana was accomplished between Tuesday afternoon, August 30 and Friday afternoon, September 2, 2005. This evacuation occurred while other search, rescue, relief and evacuation operations were simultaneously being conducted throughout the Gulf Coast between approximately Lafayette, Louisiana, on the west and the Florida panhandle on the east -– an area of about 90,000 sq. miles, or the size of the entire nation of Great Britain.

    Below please find a timeline of how the Kerry campaign has been run since August 1st. This is just three months but I think the incompetence, deceit and meanspiritedness exhibited show why John Kerry should not be trusted to run the country for four years. Aug. 1 - Normally a candidate gets a "bounce" in the polls immediately after his convention - not so for Kerry. Aug. 2 - Kerry advisor says Kerry will make world safer by giving Iran nuclear fuel and hope that they use it for good. Sane people everywhere say, "Are you friggin' kidding me?" Meanwhile...

    Still not 100% complete, but I put this together to see how the different anti-war elements fit together; ie: Democratic Party's concerted effort to run the longest presidential campaign in history with the most opposition candidates in history anti-war protesters and of course the UNSC opposition to the war in Iraq

    The 'positive' candidate: a timeline by Nathan Carleton September 06, 2004 John Kerry loves to accuse his opponents of below-the-belt personal attacks. He has discussed a “Republican attack squad,” responded to supposed attacks on his “patriotism,” and charged, with very little evidence, that the White House is illegally coordinating 527-advertisements against him. Last week, Kerry described the Republican convention as “almost nothing but anger and insults.” The next time Kerry calls a heated analysis of his voting record a smear campaign, remember what he and his high-level supporters have been doing the last year and a half: 4/2/03: Kerry calls...
  • Request help from Military FReepers: Third Wound Policy

    I was updating my John F. Kerry Timeline and ran across this item on the Kerry-Edwards official web site ( John Kerry's Vietnam Service Timeline March 17, 1969 The policy of Coastal Squadron One, the swift boat command, was to send home any individual who is wounded three times in action. After sustaining his third wound from enemy action in Vietnam, Kerry was granted relief under this policy. Question for military freepers: 1. Is this a policy for the Navy or just the Coastal Squadrom One? Or just John Kerry? 2. What about the Army, Air Force, Marines, etc. 3....

    John Forbes Kerry Timeline ^ | August 27, 2004 | christie/Two Step
    Several days I ago I realized that all the dates of John Kerry's activities were totally jumbled in my head. I sat down to make a little timeline. It grew into a massive timeline - and covers his entire life. I know several other FReepers had the same confusion. So here is the result. It is still a work in progress, and any additions, corrections, etc. will be most appreciated.The entire timeline along with pictures will be archived at my web site: I will be making the additions there, so you might want to bookmark that site.

    This shows just about every little event detailing America's war with Saddam. It starts off in 1974, has a lot about the Iran/Iraq War and the US involvement, and then goes into mega detail from that point on. I think you'll all like it. :)
