In war, alliances and enemies is everything. The questions at the end of the day: Who is the biggest enemy and what is the end game? America, Israel, Russia, China, N.Korea, Lebanon, Great Britain, and so many other powers are involved in the Syrian War. Players are always being added and new alliances begin to form. Hamas a staunch enemy of Israel and America, former ally of Syria and Hezbollah called for Hezbollah to withdraw its troops. Against it’s own best interests last year Hamas withdrew its backing of Syria.
It essentially threw it’s former ally Assad to Israel in the hopes that it could avoid another conflict with Israel. Hamas wants Hezbollah to keep it’s weapons aimed at Israel, but want’s it to ignore an important advanced weapon lifeline and a proxy Western battlefront. Israel and Western powers are trying to gradually take over the middle east by isolating and destroying enemies. Iraq was targeted in the 90’s but only fell recently. Syria was targeted previously but has allies to fall back on in hard times.
Hezbollah gains by remaining in the war. Syria can more easily transfer weapons to an ally, who it is in direct contact with(i.e. fighting alongside them in war) and it keeps a buffer/enemy of Israel/ally in Syria. This is the same dilemma that the West has in arming rebels, if the arm the rebels then weapons will automatically end up in terrorists hands. If the west supplies inferior weapons, then the rebels will be unable to compete with Assad, but if they supply advance weapons then they open hells gate to potential weapons Al Qaeda can get it’s hands on. The fighting stokes social boundaries between Shiites and Sunnis, but the war has the potential to strengthen political power by obtaining victory. It also gives Hamas already battle hardened soldiers, more experience on the battlefield.
Hamas would be better off obtaining and strengthening alliances in the region, instead of practicing isolationist military policies. Syria and Hezbollah could be a great alliance to join.
America would also be seen as turning it’s back on fighting terror wherever it is. America would be in fact supporting and arming terrorists in a direct political fight. It has the potential to quickly turn southward like Benzhai and Fast and the Furious. The only problem is that traditional media has seen it coming from a mile away. The real question is: What is the US government thinking in arming terrorists and was the US government always the terrorists we were looking for?

I am an American and a patriot at heart, but our country has a lot of secrets to hide. We now allow for the government to willing monitor all forms of “free communications’ in the name of protection, we allow for the president to seemingly go to war at will (because we have been in a constant state of war since 9/11), and our legislators continue to line their own pockets with our money (We are indentured servants paying off the Politicians playhouse bill).
The government is currently building a case against former NSA worker Snowden. Snowden alleges that even as we call China a cyber hacker, we engage in similar attacks on China’s main Information Traffic Router in Hong Kong. Snowden alleges that the government targets public officials, businessmen, and students.
The attacks began in 2009 and focused mainly on information hubs(places where all information is filtered through) so that the government could have access to the countries entire database.Similar information could be happening domestically and could be used to fatten the pockets of officials, workers, and/or government. Media outlets have likened it to a thief calling another thief a thief, as cyber warfare is an important part of the U.S. military industrial complex.

I used to be sold on the idea of Obama, Democracy, and the American Dream. This was before I realized what Capitalism and our way of living meant. Capitalism is a system of inequality and a system built on division. It teaches us that we have to work hard, that we have to work to accumulate(super wealthy and super poor), and that it teaches us to value the individual in the hopes of personal success. Capitalism will never be a system for the people, because it is built on the principle that for one person to have, another person must lose.
The Dow has made remarkable returns since the economic downturn, businesses sit on huge stashes of cash, and the parties still disagree on how to fix a floundering U.S. economy as we rake up billions in government debt. Congress now begins on how much to cut from food entitlement programs mainly food stamps. After passing a farm bill that is aimed at protecting growers over the general population, even as the United States and most developed countries continue to produce more food than is consumed.
The bill passed in the Senate 66-27 and now heads to the House. Estimates range from 4 billion over 10 years to 20 billion over 10 years. The people who are supposed to have the best interests of the people decide to cut down on food assistance, during a time when jobs are hard to go by and product price inflation continues to outpace average worker wage growth. This amounts to a slap in the face of the poor as some corporations continue to legally pay no taxes but social programs such as education, food, and assistance for the poor continues to get taxed.

I write about the Syrian Civil War from the perspective of a businessman, a fellow military mind, an occupier, and as an American. The Syrian Civil War has raged on for the past 2 years, since March 2011. It has been seen as part of the Arab Spring Protests and has morphed into a sectarian clash of Sunni’s versus Shiites. This plays into President Assad’s, Iran’s, and Hezbollah’s claim that it is a western plot aimed at usurping power in the region. The civil war threatens to envelop the region as Turkey starts to face similar protests over government power, Lebanon aids Assad, Israel continues to interfere in foreign affairs, and foreign arms continue to flow in from everywhere. The Syrian Civil War has been seen as a proxy war between the west and contemporary rebels in Iran, Syria, Russia, and China. The Syrian War also has America and Western powers going against traditional ideals by suggesting that they arm Al Qaeda and other extremist organizations. The fact that arms from Syria were used in the embassy attack on Bengzhai, there has been recent infighting between rebel factions, and rebels have failed to unify under a single leadership hampering Western involvement.
Currently Assad’s troops are engaged in a key battle in the city of Qusair. Rebels are surrounded by 2,000 troops loyal to Assad. Reports claim that 300 mostly women, elderly, and children are in the need of medical attention after the local hospital was destroyed in fighting. Evacuations failed after a convoy carrying wounded was struck by fighting. Security forces say that aid will not be administered until after the rebel presence is eliminated. This is to prevent aid from getting to rebels and to prevent time for the rebels to regroup for an attack. Medicine and oxygen are running low and doctors have been forced to treat the wounded in makeshift hospitals.
Hezbollah, Syria’s ally, has been busy eliminating rogue and aggressive rebel factions near Lebanon.On Monday, Hezbollah forces reportedly intercepted rebel fighters from Lebanon who were headed to join the battle of Qusair. Government and Hezbollah forces have reportedly made gains, as rebels are said to be entrenched in northern and eastern parts of the city. Rebels are outgunned by Assad’s forces, using mostly captured and foreign arms. Israel has been warned by Iraq’s Sunni leadership that it will not allow incursions of its airspace to attack Iran. Iraq, An American ally, is not allied with Israel and claims that it will respond accordingly to violations of its National Sovereignty and airspace.
Sunni Cleric Sheik Maher Hammoud was fired upon in Lebanon in a drive by attempt. His security guards opened fire and neither side was injured. This comes as Hezbollah has been drawn deeper into the Syrian Civil War and has been facing mortar fire from rebel and local extremists.

This is some sick mess. He literally took the biblical scripture that reads ‘an eye for an eye’ (Exodus 21:24) to another level. Did the Holy Ghost lead him to do this? This post is not to ridicule Christianity nor its’ pastors. But I’m wondering, what was in the mind of these alleged ‘victims’ to even do some of the things he requested of them to do? Yeah, the pastor is indeed sick. Consequently, those men gave him the opportunity to do such horrific things in the name of Jesus. I’m done. Too disturbing to write move.
See the news and hear the charges brought against this sick man.
sorry but this video was removed by owner.
Many entertainers push the limits when promoting their new album. And in many instances, it works. Many also receive a great amount of ridicule from either the public, organizations, whether religious, community or political. Speaking of religious organization, how about rapper Game’s cover art for his upcoming Jesus Piece album. It’s his final contractual album with Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records. And perhaps, he wants to go out with a BANG! Consequently, having Jesus adored like a ‘religious gangbanger’ may not sit well with Christian groups as there has been much ridicule about this matter. But who knows. There’s may be a subliminal message Game wants to get out, such as Jesus’ love for all men; be it gang members, pimps, prostitutes, etc. On the other hand, would any artist be so bold to make the Islamic prophet Muhammad seem so sacrilegious? Name one artist/musician to have done it already.
One would think that after age 18, or in many cases, 21, children would be about to make their own decisions and set out their own path. Maybe that’s true of most families in the United States of America, yet India’s a difficult culture, with a different set of principals, particularly in the area of marriage to which most marriages in the country are arranged. Most marriages that aren’t arranged are frown upon and could lead to serious issues such as family separation or DEATH even. The latter is something the couple (Rajveer and Madhuri) in the video fears, both coming from a Muslim and Hindu society. Though happy to be together, having married, they’re on the run for their lives, fearing being killed by the family, as the thought of one finding love on their own isn’t something yet grasps in their family and in much of the country. So they called the Love Commandos; a group of aging businessmen and journalists who began a movement to protect lovers from harassment by both Hindu and Muslim hard-liners, according to the BBC (Huffington Post).
The Love Commandos formed 10 years ago, and since then have opened up secret shelters to help rescue Indian couples, like Rajveer and Madhuri, who are in love but are in danger of being forced to marry someone else by their families. The couple escaped their village and made way to the Love Commandos’ shelter in New Delhi and married there.
It doesn’t matter how religious, much of an agnostic or atheist one might be. Regardless of what one might believe or not, watching something like this will indeed ‘freak’ them out. I’m a form believer in what I consider to be God’s eternal Word for sure. And that is the Bible. So why does this video freak me out so much? Because I’m human for one. And this video is about eternity. No matter what one believes about eternity, perhaps man can all agree that there is no time there. And that’s what the people in this video understood while having the opportunity to get a glimpse of heaven and/or hell when having their near death experiences.

Just had a thought the other day like wanting to run around ‘butt-naked’ through my neighborhood here in China, holding an American flag while yelling ‘America #1′, as we came out of top as the country with the most wins, having dominated the Olympic Games which was hosted in London (England). For too things would lead to me getting arrested; being naked and BLACK. But what Jason “Mayhem” Miller did takes the cake for his stunt.
The former UFC fighter had been arrested for breaking into the Mission Hills Church (Mission Viejo, CA) and causing chaos. When authorities arrived, it is said the church was completely trashed. One could imagine bibles, programs and hymn books having been scattered all over the place.
Reports say Mayhem was found laying on the couch asleep. Of course he was taken into custody and is currently being medically evaluated.
What has YMCMB done to Aubrey Graham’s ego. Dude is crazy talented I admit. But where’s the integrity? Where’s the respect? I’m by far not ‘holier than thou’ but is 2012 all about GOING OVERBOARD TO STAY RELEVANT? First Nicki Minaj with her RAUNCHY, less than classy ‘STUPID H@%’ song and video. Now DRAKE with this? From what I know about being Judaism, we’ll depending on one’s view of G-d is that, it’s nothing to be played with. I do hope many Jews see this video and speak out against Drake, his YMCMB and Universal Music Group about this mess. The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson was forced to alter his lyrics to ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ (Dangerous, 1991) because of the “Jew Me/Sue Me” line, to which many Jews cried out ‘antisemitism’. Although Drake is Jewish (African American father, Caucasian Jewish Canadian mother), it’s still distasteful and like spitting in the face of the patriarchs of the Jewish culture. I usually don’t go on an attack about one’s freedom of expression (First Amendment). Yet if you’re Jewish or have some understanding about the religion, then get what I’m saying.
Hmmmmm. Before there was the church, there was Israel. The idea of heaven and hell didn’t begin with church history. But lets not go there. I honestly believe that often times, human beings don’t want to believe that something just might be the ultimate reality. So to continue in our behaviors as well as traditions, we block it out or try to do away with the thought as goes against our lifestyle.
Or maybe this priest is just trying to find ways to justify his thoughts on the matter so that he could continue having sex with little boys.
My question to him would be how to do away with the thought about Satan if there is no Hell? And if there is no Hell, then what’s the need of a God?
Small Kentucky church took a stand as they voted to ban interracial couples from joining their congregation. And guess what it did? Causes dissension within “God’s house” against congregates concerning this matter. The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an “internal affair.”
The resolution says anyone is welcome to attend services, but interracial couples could not become members or be “used in worship services or other church functions.”
“I am not racist. I will tell you that. I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil about a race,” said Thompson, the church’s former pastor who stepped down earlier this year. “That’s what this is being portrayed as, but it is not.”
If it is indeed an “internal afffair”, I’m sure it has more to do with matters of his heart as well as other congregates of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church whom also feel that way. And if racism isn’t a factor, then what is it? I hope he doesn’t say that he prayed about it and the Lord gave him a vision to separate the ‘sheeps’ from the ‘goats’. I’m wondering what the ‘so-called Christians of this congregation would do when they get to the “pearly gates” and God says, “I condone members of your congregation calling themselves my children. So go to hell.”
Never have I heard a rape victim being sent to prison yet the rapist gets to go free. However it happens in certain countries, cultures and religions as to the attitude that the woman ‘provoked’ a man to rape her. Many would argue that it’s a religious thing and that people often abuse or misquote principles and scriptural verses to ‘justify’ a behavior, attitude or action. Whichever the case may be, no human being deserves to be taken advantage of. And no human being should be forced into making a decision that they shouldn’t have to make if the justice system was fair for all.
Yes, I too am sick and tired of this lace front party that’s going on amongst our women, predominately black. Like there is a PETA, there should be an Anti-Lace Front Association as well. Though this video seems to start off as a joke in the beginning, it’s definitely an issue needed to be addressed.
