  • Invade Syria and Iran - a letter to editor

    Dear Editor: Syria and Iran are backing a guerilla war against American and Great Britain. Invade Syria and Iran. The demons of the Middle East - Syria and Iran - call Western people "infidels." There are enough words in my vocabulary to describe these terrorists and idiots. Also, a general who gets on television and runs his big mouth from North Korea says that North Korea plans on committing mass murder against our people. I think this general is a big-mouth. I served in the infantry for two tours in the Vietnam War. I only regret that I'm not young...

    HA NOI — Two patients confirmed to be infected with bird flu are receiving treatment at the National Institute for Clinical Research into Tropical Diseases. The two patients, Cao Thi Hang from Nghe An Province and Dinh Thi Hien from Thai Binh Province, were hospitalised earlier this month, according to a physician at the institute, Nguyen Thi Tuong Van. The patients are reported to be in stable condition. Five other patients carrying influenza type A were also moved to the institute from Bach Mai Hospital last week, Van said. The institute has sent samples to them to the Central Institute...

    Kerry Betrayed His Comrades In Arms. In my article Bush and Uncommon Valor, I state that although it is fair to recognize Sen. Kerry's four-month war record and medals, it is what he did after leaving the military that deserves the greatest scrutiny. He became a turncoat by misrepresenting to the American public what our soldiers were doing in Southeast Asia. As part of the anti-war movement with Jane Fonda, he maligned, mocked and discredited our soldiers. He lied about what our soldiers were doing in combat. He defamed our brave fighting men. Today, John Kerry holds a place of...

    Open plea to all Freepers I sincerely and humbly ask all of you to please write an email or make a call concerning the Sinclair documentary. The left if extremely busy and they could win this battle. This is not a flame or an insult, but an earnest plea for you to raise your voice in defense of this great country. For those of us not in the military, the most important thing we can do now is work to keep John F. Kerry out of office. He will drag us into an abyss of liberalism and amorality, appoint...

    The meeting, however, was not a secret. Kerry, a leading antiwar activist at the time, mentioned it in testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in April of that year. "I have been to Paris," he testified. "I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and Provisional Revolutionary Government," the latter a South Vietnamese communist group with ties to the Viet Cong. Kerry's campaign said earlier this year that he met on the trip with Nguyen Thi Binh, then foreign minister of the PRG and a top negotiator at...

    The most interesting part of the talk concerned the latest account of John Kerry's whereabouts on Christmas Day, 1968. Kerry's account of this list has shifted and changed constantly over the last 35 years. Some versions have him spending the day in Cambodia, dropping off spies. Others have him in a barracks, 55 miles from the Cambodian border, scribbling entries into his diary. Hurley offered a hybrid today, saying Kerry was ordered onto the water Christmas day, made his way to the Cambodian border, endured three separate engagements with the enemy, and returned home. I count at least six distinct...

    Home run: PM didn't fawn, Bush didn't get ugly By LAWRENCE MARTIN Never in Canada-U.S. history have a Liberal prime minister and a Republican president hit it off. Among the various reasons was a basic one: ideological differences. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Teddy Roosevelt set the trend a century ago. In a dispute over the Alaska boundary, intemperate Teddy announced, "I am going to be ugly." He proceeded to act accordingly, and the prime minister responded in kind. Mackenzie King had distant relations with Calvin Coolidge, who, while hailing from the border state of Vermont, amazed Mr. King's coterie by...

    Canada headlines today's news as Christians are being asked to pray as the country's parliament is now in summer recess. At issue is proposed legislation that would consider the Bible 'hate literature' because of its stand on homosexuality. International Bible Society's Stan Kellner. "As individual groups and nations turn away from the word of God as their mooring in life, unfortunately these are some of the very typical things that happen. Now what we have are groups who are saying, 'hey, because the Bible has these particular verses, we can call that hate literature.'" Kellner says the legislation will be...

    To usher in the 21st century, Time Magazine asked its readers to vote their choice for "the most influential people of the 20th century." The contest quickly became a two-man race, with the top contenders each gaining about a third of the vote (and the other 98 nominees sharing the other third). The winner, with 33.8%, was Winston Churchill. The runner-up, with 33.2%, was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk -- a result that prompted most of the Western world to emit a collective "Mustafa who?" Mustafa Kemal Ataturk is certainly less well known than Franklin Roosevelt (12%), Fidel Castro (11%), Lenin (3%),...

    OTTAWA -- A team of six Canadian snipers shot dead heavily armed Taliban or al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan over the past week -- the first confirmed enemy killings in combat by Canadian troops since the Korean War. Speaking about the fighting as part of Operation Anaconda, Vice-Admiral Greg Maddison said the snipers "suppressed enemy mortar and heavy machine-gun positions with deadly accuracy." That information emerged yesterday as 600 Canadian and U.S. soldiers launched a new combat mission, called Operation Harpoon, in eastern Afghanistan. Under Canadian command, the soldiers were flown in by helicopter from the Bagram air base, up to...

According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the new deportation process was devised as a means to quot;tighten securityquot; after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Four such deportations have been completed to date. In the latest quot;joint removal process,quot; in February, a group of people of Somali origin, including six from Canada, were flown to the country's war-torn...

    Being rude to a guest in your own house doesn't demean your guest. It demeans you. This was true two years ago when a teacher union childishly gave the silent treatment to Ontario Education Minister Janet Ecker at its annual convention. And it was true last week when the Canada-Israel Committee jeered and attacked rookie Foreign Affairs Minister Bill Graham, after he delivered a luncheon speech to the CIC judged by the audience to be unsympathetic to Israel. One doesn't have to agree with the ever-ambivalent policies of the Chretien government toward Israel to show good manners. The treatment of...
