the french have a little war in them

http://news.yahoo.com/france-direct-com ... 35063.html

BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — French troops pressed northward in Mali toward territory occupied by radical Islamists on Wednesday, military officials said, announcing the start of a land assault that will put soldiers in direct combat "within hours."

French ground operations began overnight in Mali, Adm. Edouard Guillaud, the French military chief of staff, said on Europe 1 television. France's Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on RTL radio that soldiers were headed away from the relative safety of the capital toward the rebel strongholds in the north.

The French have been involved in wars in West Africa since the 1800's. While other fellow European powers actually gave up their colonies France quietly kept troops stationed in West Africa.

Is that supposed to be frowned upon?

watch Waco - The Rules of Engagement. It might even be on Youtube.

It is very sympathetic to the Davidians and probably moreso to Koresh than he deserved, but it shows just how far the ATF and then the FBI overreached, lied, and trampled on civil liberties. It also shows how grossly incompetent and negligent the agency is.

Nat Geo has a pretty good series called the Final Report that looked into Waco as well and drew many of the same conclusions.

What short memories people have. The GOP House was against extending the payroll tax holiday to 2012 but it made it through eventually and neither the Democrats or the GOP had plans to extend it in 2013.

Yeah, I despise the president for a lot of reasons, but I found it difficult to get that sauced up over the return to "normal" levels.

It is interesting that the President misspoke on what the 1st Amendment says.

Instead of saying, "free exercise of religion" he said, "right to worship."

This, the recommendations are not as tough as the already existing gun laws in Connecticut.

I honestly don't catch any difference? Am I missing something?

Make everything about being for the safety of children and society succumbs. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but either way its a ploy.

$4 billion goes to spending for 15,000 police officers. Isn't that pretty much what the NRA suggested?

Anyone else wondering what a "school resource officer" is?

An armed guard, perhaps?
