Russian Jet to US Navy..."I'm not touching you."

Written by Fox News on . Posted in World News

Publisher’s note:  In an obvious attempt to flip a “military bird” at a very weak and indecisive administration, a Russian Su 24 Fighter Jet played a game of “I’m not touching you” with our guided missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea. 

The lack of leadership in this nation is astounding.  I hear calls of impeachment and I ask why?  What good would it do?  Even removing the most dangerous potus in our nation’s history wouldn’t help because where would that leave us?!  

The current line-up of succession if we could get rid of him is as follows; Biden, Boehner, Leahy, Kerry, Lew, Hagel, and Holder.  We could not be more screwed.

Fox News:  A Russian warplane made several close-range passes by an American warship in the Black Sea over the weekend, in what the Pentagon is calling a "provocative" move amid escalating tensions in the region. 

The jet, a Russian Su-24, made numerous low-altitude passes on Saturday over the USS Donald Cook, a guided-missile Navy destroyer in the western Black Sea, the Pentagon confirmed. 

According to officials, the jet made a total of 12 passes over the course of 90 minutes. It did not once respond to multiple contacts and warnings from the USS Donald Cook, despite the fact that the U.S. Navy ship was able to reach the cockpit directly. 

The Pentagon says that the jet had no visible missiles attached to its wings and that the incident ended without any exchange of fire. 

"This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with international protocols and previous agreements of a professional interaction between our militaries," Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said. 

The low altitude of the jet varied at times from "virtual sea level to several thousand feet," Warren said. The jet did not "buzz" the Cook, but "flew too close," he said.

U.S. Graves in France honored

Written by Fox News on . Posted in World News

Publisher’s note:  Just like most soldiers in most wars, they were just kids; kids that left families, buddies, girlfriends and dreams, and went off to war to protect what they loved.  Too many of them paid the ultimate price, didn’t come back, and were buried where they fell.  

Now, many years later and still far from home, they have never been forgotten.  The graves of 5,000 American Soldiers at Epinal American Military Cemetery in France have been adopted by a group of people from France and America.  Those graves are being lovingly honored and tended to via a combined effort between lots of people on both sides of ‘the pond.’ 

Fox News:  A group of volunteers on both sides of the Atlantic has found a way to bring back to life dozens of Wisconsin men who died fighting Nazis in World War II.

Some 5,000 Americans are buried in Epinal American Military Cemetery in France’s northeastern town of Dinozé. Their names might have been lost to history if not for dozens of volunteers, who call themselves "godfathers," and have adopted the gravesites of the U.S. soldiers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

But placing wreaths and flowers and tending to the crosses that mark each grave was not enough for one so-called godfather, who last year reached out to a University of Wisconsin history professor to try to learn more about a soldier named Robert Kellett.

UW-Madison Prof. Mary Louise Roberts thought the request could be a good project for her students, so she brought it to class and gauged interest.

Chile struck by 8.0 off shore quake

Written by Reuters on . Posted in World News

Publisher’s note:  In the last week, there have been 300 earthquakes reported in the South American Country of Chile within the last two weeks, and at approximately 8:10 pm, EST, a massive 8.0 quake struck off the coast, raising concern over possible tsunamis.  Initial reports indicate no tsunamis have taken place yet, however there are preliminary reports of precautionary evacuations in coastal areas.  Additionally, there is no severe damage reported at this time.

I cannot help but consider this from the Gospel of Matthew 24: 7-8 KJV when Jesus said:

7.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Obama to Bibi...time running out for P/A peace

Written by Arutz Sheva on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  I am amazed at the audacity of this POTUS making any sort of a statement regarding how Israel should react and/or respond to the Palestinian Authority; much less claiming that Abbas “is sincere about his willingness to recognize Israel and its right to exist.”  Does POTUS really think that PM Netanyahu doesn't see this for what it is; one muslim lying for another?  Thankfully for Israel, they have a leader that isn't afraid to stare down his enemies and protect his country.

Arutz Sheva:  One day ahead of his meeting Monday with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, U.S. President Barack Obama is urging the Israeli leader to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Speaking to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg in an interview published Sunday, Obama warned that time was running out to negotiate a peace agreement.

Obama further claimed that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas “is sincere about his willingness to recognize Israel and its right to exist.”

“We are coming to a point, though, over the next couple of months where the parties are going to have to make some decisions about how they move forward,” he said. “And my hope and expectation is that, despite the incredible political challenges, that both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Abbas are able to reach past their differences and arrive at a framework that can move us to peace.”

Pressing Netanyahu not to put off the hard decisions on peacemaking, Obama invoked the prime minister’s nickname and paraphrased the words of revered Jewish sage Hillel.

“When I have a conversation with Bibi, that’s the essence of my conversation,” he told Goldberg. “If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who? How does this get resolved?”

If the peace talks fail, Obama warned, the U.S. will have limited ability to protect Israel from what he called “international fallout.”

Tymoshenko released in Kiev

Written by Arutz Sheva on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  Amid escalating violence and unrest in the Ukraine, former PM Yulia Tymoshenko has been released from detention by vote of Parliment.  Time will tell what her new role in that government will be, however now that President Yanukovych has fled Kiev, anything is possible in that very troubled hot bed region.

Arutz Sheva:  Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was received on Saturday night by thousands of opposition supporters in central Kiev after being freed from detention, the BBC reports.

She has suffered from a back injury and addressed them from her wheelchair.

"You are heroes," she told the crowd on Independence Square, the focus of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych, and broke down in tears.

The speech came at the end of a dramatic day, with the president fleeing Kiev but refusing to quit.

Tymoshenko warned that the protesters should not think their job was done.  "Until you finish this job and until we travel all the way, nobody has the right to leave," she said, according to the BBC. "Because nobody could do it - not other countries, nobody - could do what you have done. We've eliminated this cancer, this tumor."
