    Says Job of Destroying U.S. Economy Now in Congress’s Hands -- The Borowitz Report

    Read more ....Al Qaeda Defers to U.S. Congress : The New Yorker

    If I'm not mistaken, the New Yorker isn't exactly known as a stanchion of Republican policies and views. At first I chuckled over this thinking it to be like a Duffel Blog piece. Then I realized the serious side of it. Why do we need foreign enemies with the politicians we have here at home?

    :cool:

    Al Qaeda forms volatile 1,000-km chain from Baghdad to Damascus
    March 12, 2013, Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz rated war as a “low risk” for the foreseeable future, but credited the risk of escalation as “very high,” in a lecture he delivered Monday, March 11 at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Institute for policy and strategy. “Almost every week, some incident occurs that could drag the region into a conflagration,” he warned.

    For Sale: Slightly Rusted "Weapon of Mass Destruction": $2.00

    Believe it or not, a grenade is considered a "weapon of mass destruction" WMD by the US Criminal Code. If this grenade were operable, you could be charged with a crime for possessing it. But possessing an assault rifle with a large ammo clip is legal. GO FIGURE! This issue came up because an American who was fighting in Syria for the insurgents reportedly fired a rocket propelled grenade RPG at a Syrian helicopter. The US Government is charging him with using a WMD to kill people (the RPG) which carries a sentence of life in prison.
