  • Timeline: History of the border

    09/24/2006 12:31:36 PM PDT · by SandRat · 16 replies · 1,163+ views
    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...

  • List of Al Qaeda or terrorist attacks?

    Does anyone have a source to a list of worldwide attacks attributed to Alqaeda or other terrorist groups? I have a debate going with someone who feels that the US "deserved" 911. 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...
  • A timeline of relations between Iran, U.S.

    05/08/2006 5:01:50 PM PDT · by familyop · 4 replies · 445+ views
    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. -...

But defying critics and plunging polls, he declared, "I'm optimistic we'll succeed. If not, I'd pull our troops out."

    Baghdad -- Om Hussein, wrapped in her black abaya, lists the contents of the family's walk-in storage closet: three 175-pound cases of rice, two 33-pound cases of cooking fat, six cases of canned tomatoes, three crates of assorted legumes, a one-month supply of drinking water, frozen chicken livers in the freezer. And in the garage, jerry cans filled with fuel are piled floor to ceiling. Om Hussein, who was reluctant to give her full name, and her Shiite family are preparing for war. They've stocked up on food. They bought a Kalashnikov rifle and a second car -- so that...

    The Secret Service, which put the time of the shooting at 5:50 p.m., said it had notified Sheriff Ramon Salinas III of Kenedy County by 7 p.m. Sheriff Salinas said he had dispatched a deputy, and he later issued a news release suggesting that the officer had been turned away at the ranch... Sheriff Salinas did not return repeated calls, and a reporter seeking to resolve the discrepancies was turned away Wednesday by the sheriff's office in Sarita, which said he was "unavailable." Ms. Armstrong said she knew nothing of any attempted visit by a deputy on Saturday night. Between...

    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...

    Iraqi President Jalal Talabani said on Saturday that it may be possible to reach an agreement by the end of 2006 on the withdrawal of foreign troops from his country. Speaking to reporters in Rome at the end of a week-long visit to Italy, Talabani said the Iraqis were training their police and soldiers to try to create the conditions for foreign troops to be able to leave. "We are looking forward to the day we can say goodbye to the forces of the coalition," he said. "If things continue as they are I think by the end of 2006...

    KIEV, November 10 (RIA Novosti, Taras Burnos) - Ukraine will withdraw most of its military contingent from Iraq, leaving about 50 troops, the country's defense minister said Thursday. "In view of a proposal from the Iraqi government and coalition leaders, a presidential draft resolution is being prepared. If it is passed, in 2006 there will be a limited number of military personnel in Iraq," Anatoliy Hrytsenko said following his visit to Iraq. The remaining Ukrainian troops will stay in the country for six months. Ukraine currently has about 1,000 soldiers posted in Iraq. The authorities previously announced that the...

    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."

    Look at this timetable(*): Prior to 2001 - From various sources, the CIA has intelligence that Iraq made attempts to purchase weapons grade uranium in Africa (not just Niger). 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. "According to a foreign...

    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...

    FEMA Pilot: Rescue Began Just Hours After Flood Helicopters from the Federal Emergency Management Agency were conducting rescue operations in New Orleans less than a day after breaks in local levees began flooding the city. But the lightning-quick fly-out mission had to be abandoned that same night because local marauders were shooting at the FEMA choppers. "We first got in on Tuesday night," a FEMA pilot, who identified himself only as "Randy," told Fox News Radio's Tony Snow this morning. The 17th Street levee had begun to give way late in the evening Monday. Well into Tuesday, city officials were...
  • Katrina timeline in spreadsheet form needed.

    It occurs to me that we need a Katrina timeline in spreadsheet form to track who said/did what when. 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...
