There's word from the war Saudi Arabia is conducting in Yemen against the Houthis who heavily populate the northern part of the country and are supported by Iran.

A bomb supplied by the United States was used in an air attack on a school bus recently that killed 51 people including 40 children.

It was a laser guided Mk 82 bomb manufactured by defense contractor Lockheed Martin according to the lettering on it.

This news report has political overtones since CNN is behind it noting that former President Barack Obama banned the sale of these kind of bombs after an attack on a funeral in Yemen that killed 140 people. CNN also notes that President Donald Trump overturned the ban in 2017.

Uncle Walter did his "that's the way it is" but I always aspired to do my own version and I do this on my own time not making a scintilla of money from it while I work two jobs 60 plus hours a week for the dough.

Tonight I had the time to beef things up a bit to 11 stories although I've used as few as seven in posts.

This is appreciated. Especially glad to hear about our Arizona senate race. I detest McSally with the heat of a million blazing suns.

Fox News and Talk Radio and all the “Conservative” websites out there should give it more attention but they seem to remain silent or wait till the day before the election when its too late to help.

I just moved to Arizona, so I’m not really familiar with Martha McSally, but her ads sure are annoying. Is it just a coincidence that all of Arizona’s female candidates are former fighter pilots?

Fake news about Obama “banning the sale” of these kinds of bombs (laser or gps guided precision munitions, or the kits to strap on older “dumb bombs”).

Obama pushed through huge sales of these weapons to the Saudis and Turks before he left office. Years worth.

This article is the anti-truth.

CNN did the reporting and I attributed it to them suggesting a political bias.
